This little alien is a pain in the arse…

As many of you know throughout my entire treatment i have gained IV access to my chemotherapy via a portacath which is inside my chest wall and is meant to enable easy access. Trust me it has been a god send, i can swim, play…

Just cant catch a break this month…

After the previous round of chemotherapy and the issue with the extravasation all i wanted was a relatively straight forward round of chemotherapy if that actually exists. Wednesday came round as it does every two weeks even though it feels like you only walked out…

Extravasation- what even is that?

Well last Thursday presented a new problem, woke up with a dead arm and a really sore shoulder but port seemed normal so must have just slept funny. In the search of more sleep which is difficult to obtain I try and get a few…

Spondylolisthesis no its not a type of dinosaur…

Radioactive again… time to glow!

Random bone pain has arisen and decided it has wanted to stick around for numerous weeks. Mainly in my lower back and i cant seem to shift it. Its also in my shins, random but annoying and probably just another side effect from all this…
