Sadly my optimism has taken a slight nose-dive with the news that I have myxofibrosarcoma, which is, to quote Prof Khong,
‘one of the nastier ones where you may have to throw everything at it. It has a high mitotic index of 26 per high power field (HPF), meaning that the cell multiplication cycle is pretty fast’.
I am seeing the Prof on Friday and will post an update if there’s any different news from this.
I am hoping that it will not come to this – the amputation of my leg, and it being replaced with one from an Ethiopian as here! Thanks Clare C for this image!
By the way I am not reading anything on the internet so as not to scare myself as you all seem to read is other people’s disasters, never the success stories. I will be guided by sensible medical friends and professionals about what to expect and then I will share with you all.
the second G & T is slipping down nicely, and now for an evening of Nordic Noir as pure escapism…

Sorry to hear this Vicky – I remember my doc scaring me half to death when she told me that my cancer was very aggressive and they would have to “throw the book at me ” treatment wise – they did and it worked.. Sending love Xxx
