Today I am back at UCLH and sat in the Nuclear Medicine department.
Two procedures to be done today.
The first is a Whole Body Bone Scan, I have just been injected with a radioactive trace which will take about 2 hours to work its way around my body and then it’s 30 minutes in the scanner.
The scan will show my Oncology team the state of my cancer.
The second procedure is an actual cancer treatment called Radium 223 which is injected via a cannula and only takes around 10 minutes.
The Radium attacks any cancer cells it may find in my bones.
So a very radioactive day today.
Overall I am feeling much better than I have over recent months and it’s been nearly 3 weeks since I was last discharged from hospital 🏥.
Let’s hope that continues.
All the stays in hospital and the problems I went in with have taken a toll but I am slowly building myself back up and am getting on with things.
I hope the photo captures how well I feel.
