Met with my Oncologist last week after having my annual head MRI. No change in the tumour which was good news, I'm getting more relaxed about it now and don't worry as much as I used to when it got near check up time.

They did discover a cavernoma though (an abnormal group of blood cells) which had previously gone undetected. Apparently they're not uncommon and usually cause no problems, but if they bleed they can be anything from a little annoying to fatal. They're just going to keep an eye on it for now.

Probably a strong correlation with NHS finances over those five years, Dibs... ;)

Nice one Dibs. It’s a good milestone, innit. I was 5 years in August since I had my bone marrow transplant.

Good that this is working out, lucky you don't live in America so didn't have to start a Meth lab to pay for treatment, and after all that effort still end up in a frozen cabin in the woods not cured.

Eye surgery booked for 2 weeks time, my double vision is getting worse to the point where they can't put any more prism in my glasses. If all goes well I won't need any at all after the op which I'm very much looking forward to, prisms are a ball ache.

Doc C, consultant is Peter Thomas at Bedford, don't know if you know of him. Nice guy with a good reputation.
