12 September - bad news

Just got back from the GP surgery to hear about my CT scan result. It was not what we wanted to hear.

My tumour has increased in size. It has approximately doubled in length since January.

The news is not entirely unexpected given the symptoms I have been experiencing. But it's a bit of a shock to hear it confirmed nevertheless. The last couple of years have lulled me into a sense of feeling that things could just go on as they are now, long into the future.Today is a reminder that this isn't over yet.

What happens next? We don't know. We will have to wait and see. The GP will alert my other doctors about the change in my status. But until they decide on a course of action we can only speculate.
