Update on Amy

I had scans done last week and a visit to the oncologist on Friday confirmed that there had been no spread of the cancer to any other organs and no further progression in my liver.  My tumour markers were also stable.  So good news (even though  I'd prefer 'gone' to 'stable'!).  I don't have to go back to see the oncologist for 2 months so (hopefully)  no visits to the hospital until mid-November.  Hurrah!

The lymphoedema in my right arm hasn't improved but hasn't got worse either so will continue wearing the very unattractive sleeve and glove and doing the exercises.  One of the side effects of the tablets I am on is swelling so I think I will just have to live with it for now.  Hopefully we can maintain it at the current level.
