Thank you all so much for your expressions of love & support while I was in hospital. I was finally released on Thursday pm but only after I threatened them with a writ of Habeous Corpus.
Pain is still not fully under control but I was going crazy in there (12 days in all) with all the terrible food etc. Auckland Hospital is quite old & being replaced in next 2 years so they won't spend any money in it decor wise.
I had bone scans & new chest & lung & abdominal CT while in there. No new tissue mets (lungs are under control & no liver mets showing) The drug Megace (Megastat or Farlutal here) has failed to stop bone mets & my figures are now very high again with new mets in sternum, ribs, sacrum. pelvis & femur. I had a one shot high radiation to sternum on Thursday & start chemo on 8 June. They are using Adriamycin only as it is the best for bone mets & the MEgace seems to keep the tissue mets under control. Still in a lot of pain but I refuse to take anymore morphine. I am already on 180mgs of Kapanol a day (slow release morphine)with top ups of Sevredol (20mg morphine) for breakthrough pain. Glad I bought that wig as I am now ready to go. Oh well - I have had my weep now its time to get fighting before Tiger gets her foot ready for a kick in the butt for feeling sorry for myself.
You messages were wonderful & John says you are a great group of people & we are lucky to have you all. I echo that. Love to you all
