Hello!

I thought it would be nice to make a "my cancer journey" blog. The reason for this is I want to update people on my progress with chemotherapy and drugs etc. and also give an insight to people who may not have experienced cancer or seen cancer first hand what it's really like.

Don't be afraid to ask me any questions, I will answer any questions as long as it's sensible.

FAQ:

What type of cancer do I have?
Spoiler:
Show




Osteosarcoma (bone cancer).




What stage?
Spoiler:
Show




Stage 1.




What drugs do I take?
Spoiler:
Show




Doxorubicin (chemo drug). I also take a lot of pain killers (I'm in a lot of pain sometimes ).




Am I bald?
Spoiler:
Show




I don't know why but a few people presume that everyone with cancer will go bald. No, I'm not bald, however my hair has thinned a little.






I'll try to keep you updated weekly at the least.

If you'd like to be tagged whenever there is an update, please let me know. Thanks.

Can you tag me? I think this will be a really interesting and insightful read. It also made my heart sink seeing the title of this. I've heard that bone cancer is the most painful cancer there is, do you know if this is true? I remember on the Stand Up to Cancer Bake Off special they showed the story of a little girl with some form of bone cancer and the amount of pain she was in was horrific and I haven't cried like that before when seeing one of those stories.

It is painful, yes. Sometimes I really do breakdown over the pain but I've gotten through it. I'll continue to fight it.

Thanks for letting me know that you want to be tagged, I'll tag you the next time I make an update. :

My heart is with you. It is fortunate that you have been diagnosed in stage 1, which means statistically good prognosis.

Did you need to undergo a biopsy for the diagnosis to be completed, or did the doctors manage to diagnose the cancer during other investigation?

I know that many cancers are really difficult to diagnose, especially among young people.
