Well I always did like that puppet show. And I do use Thunderbird for my emails!
And today was the end of my chemo.
It nearly wasn’t. The Out-of-hours doc diagnosed muscle cramp in the gut, she seemed to think it was the bisacodyl. Anyway I got a better night’s sleep, and in the morning was able to eat some bacon. The Christie gave me the OK to finish the chemo, and I went in for the scan as well.
Afterwards I was still having cramp pain, so before I left the Christie I rang the hotline. They said come in and see us. They were the other side of the wall I was leaning against!
A long wait, while they did bloods and everything else, and their doctor agreed:
- It’s not Appendicitus or anything similar
- There’s no sign of any hard blockage
- This is common with constipation, and will probably resolve if I take more movicol .
So don’t panic, take this stuff on this prescription, and finish your chemo, which will probably make a difference anyway.
So I went home, took my last tablets and threw the foil strips and the cardboard box over my shoulder for my wife to pick up and dispose of. Just for one I wanted to be utterly chauvinistic.
How do I feel? I don’t know, I’m still too drained to even think straight.
