In the meantime the pain in my left leg has come back. It started gradually two weeks ago with a few little twinges shooting from my hip to my knee. It has increased over the time and I am now back on some of the pain killers that I thought I had farewelled for good.
I have an appointment with the oncologist in a couple of weeks and will grill him about why the pain has returned, what can be done about it and what I can expect in the future.
I plan to fly out of Australia on 1st July and be away for ten weeks. I do hope that this won't put paid to those plans.
The last week in May is when Australians are encouraged to attend the world's biggest morning tea. I was a guest of the Cancer Council at their Tea by the Sea last Thursday morning. I was very privileged to be picked up and driven by Dean, owner of Paragon Executive Car Service. He also drove me home and then offered to drive me to all my appointments that day. Wow! What an offer for a girl who can't drive because of a broken arm. I had 3 medical appointments that day and Dean very graciously took me to all of them. We finally parted company at 4.30pm after a long day. Needless to say, we are now good buddies. The Tea by the Sea event raised over $10,000 for the Cancer Council.
