June Update- Just Keep Swimming…!

This is just a quick update so I will keep it brief for once. I was supposed to have my scan last Thursday but due to a hospital cock up I had it yesterday and the news was worth waiting for. Everything has shrunk or remained stable! The tumour on my pancreas has shrunk so much it’s not visible on the scan anymore, the one on my liver has also shrunk and the tumours on my lungs have remained the same. I am still a little disheartened and frustrated about the lungs but at the same time I am so happy that everything I am doing is paying off and its moving in the right direction. The good news released so much pressure and I can breathe a lot easier till next time. Its satisfying and extremely relieving knowing all the energy I am putting into fighting this and everything I am doing is having a positive effect.

I didn’t let the scan hanging over me all weekend affect my birthday celebrations and I had the best time away with the greatest bunch of mates. On top of a great weekend away England also won the series against Australia in the rugby, which is massive, and we are still in the Euros, so all is good in the hood!

Moving forward the plan is to continue with the same treatment that I have been tolerating well, and have another review after 3 rounds. Ive had to step back a little bit from doing so much with my new shoulder as I went too hard too early I think. Hopefully I haven’t damaged it and its just over used, but I have decided to return to the physio for some extra rehab. I’m continuing to get fitter and stronger with everything I am doing and I’m relentlessly searching and adding new things to help the fight, so onwards and upwards we go!

    Hi Julian, I’m sorry to hear that you have been so unwell and hope you continue to recover. It’s great to read your updates and see your positive attitude.

    I had a thought whilst reading the last part of this update, an old client of mine used this supplement company when her Father was very ill and apparently it really improved the quality of his life outside of hospital, I personally don’t really know much about it but if you were looking for something else to explore it might be worth some research. This is the site http://cellect.org/products.php As far as I can tell it is basically a huge mix of vitamins and minerals that the body needs, supposedly when we are deficient in these things our body can no longer heal efficiently. It is also worth running odourless garlic supplements past your GP, Dulwich Health have a very high quality version which is supposedly good for the health of the stomach which has carry over for the rest of the body.

    Hope you don’t mind the intrusion and suggestions and good luck!
