Monday 11th October
Another week of radiotherapy begins, under arm still a little tender and scar feels a bit tight. This evening I went to Cancer Research Uk in Cambridge for a talk about their work, some of their fundraisers and how they are developing drugs and techniques to try and beat breast Cancer. I found this a very interesting evening.
Tuesday 12th October
Had radiotherapy before work as usual then worked until 2.30 before going to BBC Radio Suffolk. I did an update on Lesley Dolphins show about my Breast Cancer treatment, saying what had happened since I visited in July and how I was doing now. Interview went well and should help raise awareness of Breast cancer as this is Breast Cancer awareness month. I also mentioned this blog so will be interesting to see if I get any feedback from those visiting blog or who heard my interview on the radio .
Thursday 14th October
Scar a bit tender today and now have a red square on chest where radiotherapy has been and looks like a square of sun burn, but shoulder area still not too bad. Under arm also tender and aches . Blog has had a lot of hits since radio interview with 95 on Tuesday and 30 yesterday , so hopefully male breast Cancer message getting out there. Went and had Flu jab tonight at doctors , but as had Chemo recently I was given normal flu jab in arm , a Swine flu jab in backside and have to have a top up normal flu jab again in 4 weeks time as my immune system may still not be up to full capacity yet since chemo.
Friday 15th October
Another week of radiotherapy completed. My scar is a little tender but bearable, and my under arm aches still , so must continue with exercises. My backside is a bit tender from that swine flu jab yesterday. Will try to have a restful weekend, before going up hospital again each day next week.
