glad tidings from Goldenoldie

Postby goldenoldie » Wed Jun 03, 2015 9:15 am

well for all my friends down in the Deep South...and for the encouragement of new friends not yet met I would like to announce that my latest scan and visit to my new oncologist yesterday left me with the very good news that my Stem Cell treatment has been a complete success.
Although I had it in 2010, I was -and still am - taking part in a research programme against Lymphoma. As part of that, I was given two monthly "mini boosts" of chemo that only took a couple of hours to do for three years, so the Oncologist explained that because of that, my body was still being affected by the drugs..even now. It is the cause of the my bad sweating and tiredness but he said that would eventually go.
Despite that I have started a new life in the Charente Maritime with a house that is now nearly been sorted out and a very large garden that was just grass and is now boasting a large veggy plot, fruit cage and flower garden!!!...all my own work!! Now I can look forward to getting back to CSF matters up here and enjoying -literally - the fruits of my labours.
So my encouragement to similar victims would be resign yourself to taking a step or two back from things whilst the chemo is at work and then slowly get back to whatever your "normal" is..but do not rush it
Anyone facing the rigours of Stem Cell treatment and would like to discuss any worries, please do not hesitate to post on the forum..I can answer publically for the use of everyone or privately as you wish.
happy summer everyone :lol: :D

As I live in the deep south, what is grass?

What great news, goldenoldie! You must be thrilled. I don't drop in to the forum often, but I do remember when your treatment journey started some years ago now.

Smashing to have a "success story" to shout about.

Enjoy the Charente Maritime and have a superb summer.

Many good wishes

;)

Good news - shouldn't you post this in another section so that more people are likely to see it. It will give much confidence to anyone offered stem cell treatment.

I am very happy for you!!!

That's a splendid idea, Francis. This really needs to be shared more widely, Goldenoldie, especially your offer to chat privately to people.

And great to hear you are enjoying life in the soggier but greener Maritime!

Very best wishes
Penny
