Blog No 159 – Final PRRT Treatment #4 in London, U.K

Near Holland Park, London

Travelled down to London ready for my PRRT Treatment No 4. Here are some of the views from the Embankment, just before Waterloo Bridge.

What a view from the Embankment just before 6pm. There is so may tall buildings in around the city of London now, it’s beginning to look like downtown city in USA & Canada.

We took a trip to Portobello Market, Notting Hill. The market wasn’t on nevertheless there was a selection of vintage & antique shops that were open. Notting Hill is such a hippy chic place with different colour residential and commercial properties. Cute little coffee shops and lots of art & jewellery stalls too.

Signage for Portobello Market

I understand that the movie ”Notting Hill” was made this side of town with Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant. I’ve not only never seen the movie but I also appeared to have missed the photo opportunities. I walked by the travel book shop twice and missed the blue door photo to Williams flat. Oh dear, I do have some nice photos of Portobello Road. It’s a beautiful area.

What can you see on the Building.

Some of the other glorious buildings.

Let’s see how this PRRT treatment goes. The last treatment, I had was gave me a bit of a rough time with bone & tumour pain etc. I’m very hopeful this treatment will be easier and I’m to expect a Ga68 scan in approximately 6 weeks. Let the results be good. X

Weekly Blog No 119 – Cancer Update

Cancer Update

Yesterday I went to London, to see my Net Consultant(Oncologist). My Consultant was being a host for two Consultants from another country. Therefore even though he asked my permission, which I agreed, the meeting didn’t go as I initially predicted. In principal, I did envision the responses to some of my questions. It was a very weird meeting in some respects as my Consultant was going in one direction but I wanted him to take another direction. My quizzical mind needed answers to my enigma.

He did advise me that they had debunked my body of tumours but I’m not tumour free. My liver is giving me a run for my money at the moment, which I believe to be tumour pain. The reason I can say this is, as a result of liver pain before I had a liver resection op, which involved removing tumours.

I had a recent local CT scan, which was totally useless as the Radiologist appeared to be blindfolded when viewing the scan to report. Therefore I’m going back to London for Ga68 Pet Scan for a better prospective. I had a series of bloods, some new meds and I will be back to see him again at the end of April. I shall look forward to seeing the results but as we all know, not all my tumours have shown up on any of the previous scans.

In the meantime, life goes on and I will continue to be proactive. I do believe the latest surgery has bought me time and I’m so grateful for that. ❤️
