Basically it was all pain free apart from having my face squashed in by the mask when undergoing the brain tumour ops.
I made it as easy as possible by renting an apartment right next to the hospital for two and a half weeks, as I didn't fancy travelling to the hospital everyday, I dont think I could of done it
It did go a little pear shape after the first week, on the last day of treatment they gave me a blood test, it came back bad my kidneys were failing, I was admitted to hospital for the weekend, they put it down to the extreme heat in London causing dehydration plus after effects from chemo.
After that my sister Jackie stayed with me in the apartment for a few days followed by my niece Hayley. They wanted to make sure that I was eating and drinking properly.
They both did a splendid job!

I even get to keep the mask!!
So far so good the side effects have been nowhere near as bad as the chemo side effects, I have had nausea and extreme fatigue and tiredness but they are getting better. They should wear off even more in a couple of weeks. I do have to go to a renal clinic next Tuesday to check out my kidneys.
Im feeling pretty good, nowhere near 100% but a definite improvement.
I have a wedding to go to in Cyprus early September, Im now a lot more confident that I will make it.
