I see the specialist today, expecting the results from my latest scan and CEA measurement. I have just finished my week off chemotherapy and was disappointed that I did not see the recovery that I had been expecting. Today is the first day that I have begun to feel better. Ideally, I should prefer it if they allowed me another week's recouperation befor I start the next course.
I was very distended, very constipated and very sore all last week but in view of the fact that I have felt better this morning, I suspect that it was treatment rather than disease that was causing the symptoms.
