Love and thoughts...


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Hi Banjo, Thank you for sharing your story, thoughts, feelings. If I was your neighbor I'd make you some chicken soup. Hang in there!

Oh, man, where have I heard THAT before? You could be channeling my late wife. It wasn't cancer, but her doctors were definitely stymied. The lead doctor once said to her, "well, your body clearly hasn't read the research papers I have, we'll have to try something else ..."

I loved that fucker. He actually phoned me a year after her death to say he was remembering her and to ask how I was. How many doctors do that?

At least I knew she had compassionate care. Sometimes, it was doctors that were the hardest part of her illness. They can be real dicks, most of them have terrible bedside manner, at least here in the US.

Keep us posted on the results.

Thanks mate.

I am happy to report my bloods are good.

However this does not explain the brain damage.

I was just told the following:

"The term 'chemo brain' is more of a layman's description. Chemo doesn't damage the brain. The chemo that you were on does."

I mean seriously.

Basically nobody knows what is happening. Least of all me.

See post above.

There is also an idea I am suffering post traumatic stress disorder.

I also learned exactly how many chemo treatments I had. 256.

I am going to a neurologist to try and learn why I have this brain disfunction. My cancer Dr has no clue.

Nothing coming up in the blood work is good, considering what could have come up. But what do they mean by brain damage? Are they objectively seeing something?
