In 2012, the Monday before The Super league Grand Final, I was sat in The Liverpool Royal Hospital being told I had a grade III soft tissue sarcoma.
In 2013, the Monday before The Super league Grand Final, I was sat in The Liverpool Royal Hospital being told that this has spread to my lungs.
What does this mean?
Basically I have three lesions, one in my right lung – on the pleura (so this is the little bugger that caused my pleurisy!), and two at the top of my left lung. Tomorrow I will be having a PET scan and an MRI in the week.
Once I’ve had these two scans, Mr Chandrasekar will confirm my treatment plan. There are two scenarios:
ii) surgery and chemotherapy
As he said, we are in for a rough ride, but this is a setback but I will get thru it. Chemo will make me poorly but it will also save my life.
I never thought I’d be starting this journey again, but I am, and as Mr Chandra said, it’s only set me back 3-6 months so what’s that in the grand scheme of things?
I feel more positive and determined to kick some butt!!
On a side note, I hope history doesn’t repeat itself on Saturday and I hope that Warrington Wolves win the Grand Final this year. Come on boys!
Take care xxxx
