Cancer Fatigue? How incredibly boring!

Yes it sadly got the better of me for the best part of the day.

Today I saw a Tweet describing Cancer as the ‘bastard!’ I can’t say they’re wrong on that as I had nicknamed my Pituitary Tumour the ‘Bitch-Bastard’ πŸ˜‚

This thing called Cancer is a damn drain on every reserve known to mankind! It is such a bore except when I decided to sign up to #SugarFreeFebruary with #CancerResearchUK at midnight due to insomnia πŸ˜¬

There are 2 bonuses:

1. Helping a very good cause.

2. Helping to keep my blood sugar stable whilst Im on Cancer treatment.

Oh well, I best get on with it and quit procrastinating! πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰

BTW can I eat cake? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


Swimming and Cancer Fatigue

Ah yes, the wonderful world of πŸ’¦

Today I enjoyed the relaxation that swimming can bring. My mind was at ease and my body followed suit.

This week I am awaiting for my blood test results to see if the fatigue is due to malabsorption in the bowel (it happens frequently following Small Bowel Resection) or the other usual culprit – the Cancer and/or the treatment OR my Pituitary but I doubt it after being settled on Steroids for nearly 3 years. You just can’t win!

Well, aside from a poolside bellyflop when being pulled from the water (long story) swimming was lovely lol! πŸ˜‚

So Neuroendocrine Cancer decided to enter the ring in 2017…

Wow! The last 18 months have been a mine field!!

The Pituitary Tumour aka the ‘Bitch Bastard’ has long gone and the fallout regularly monitored and treated with Hydrocortisone.

Along came a Small Bowel full of Neuroendocrine Tumours, mesentary presenting the highlights of the tumours, a lymph node matted with them too and a Liver peppered with the metastasis they love to spread! Well 11 months later I am recovering from a big surgery to remove the little blighters in the bowel. They have been removed from the Big Brother House – slam the damn πŸšͺ! As for the metastasis in the liver, 5 of these sneaky cretins continue to reside in my liver without paying any rent! However, they’re under the watchful eye of a great team of Net specialists across two hospitals.

January 2019 has arrived, I’m still here, still on treatment which will last for life as this cancer is incurable. It also so happens not to be genetic – MENS1 or MENS2. Thankfully ☺️

My goal for 2019 is to stay well clear of the narcissists that appear in my life. I am so over the ‘me me me me’ characters! It’s actually boring and tiring for only they have detrimental situations with little or no thought about others.Slam the dam door πŸšͺ once again, ENOUGH!

Anyway moving swiftly on…
