1 down 19 to go!

On Friday I had the first session of radiotherapy and it all seemed straightforward.

As the title says it was the first of 20 sessions so its early days yet but no side effects as yet. I have been told to expect extreme tiredness, change in appetite but most worrying is acute diahorea. However they do say tht these problems do not apply to everybody so with any luck I will avoid it. The way my luck is though I will get the lot many times over.

I feel rather downhearted today as my football team Brighton lost 6-1 to Liverpool. In some ways I was expecting to lose but hoped against hope that we could pull something out of the bag but it was a disaster!

Told you my luck was not very good and seems to stay that way

Oh Andy, I am sorry to read about the chemo...Praying that you will not get the side effects. It is only natural that you are feeling a bit down but please try to look positive and that will help I am sure.
Love Sybil x
