Frustrating And Rewarding

Well it has been a fairly busy week.

I did some research on hospitals in Germany that offered Lutetium treatment and opted to contact the Munich Technical Hospital.

Partly because the consultant had recommended it and partly because it was a direct flight from Stansted.

And so after looking at their website I emailed the International Department with an outline of my history and what I was after.

And then I waited……

After the weekend I decided to phone them, it took several attempts to get through and I was passed around a bit but eventually I got through to the Nuclear Medicine Department.

I chatted to one of the doctors and he said he had seen my email and he would send through more information.

I felt optimistic.

Then I got an email from them stating that they were taking part in the Vision Trial and as I had been accepted onto the trial they could not offer me the treatment.

Which I suppose is fair enough although it did come as a surprise and a disappointment.

So I started to look at other hospitals in Germany when I got a call from The London Clinic saying that they could offer me treatment on the 29th of August, which was great news.

Needless to say, I accepted their offer.

Then a few days later I got another call from them saying they could do the 23rd of August.

I bit their arms off and accepted their offer.

This was great news and just the dates we wanted so no need to go to Germany.

It was also great timing as we had booked a cruise and this date would give me time to recover from the treatment if needed and also time for the radiation to cool down as it would have presented some challenges being on a cruise especially with the sleeping arrangements.

So overall a week or so of a rollercoaster ride, emotions up and down but everything worked out in the end.

One thought on “Frustrating And Rewarding”

  1. Goodness me that is a bit of a rollercoaster but I’m very glad you’re all sorted now. Good luck with the treatment!
