Tight Schedule

I spent most of my time sleeping yesterday. The doctors have been using a morphine patch for my nerve pain but it does not seem to be working. Since the MRI scan I did back in Malaysia is not clear, I will have to do another one here if I want to investigate further. Then again, even with another MRI, the doctors may still not  know the exact cause of the pain. Therefore, their main focus and priority is to treat the tumours before my 30 days visa expires. Treatment  for my leg pain is secondary.
As it is now, my schedule is quite tight. I have been requesting the doctors to accelerate my treatments and to shorten the observation time after each treatment. I am also put on drips daily to boost my immune system. This morning I went for another CT scan and on Friday, I will get the radiotherapy implant on the new lung tumour and possibly HIFU treatment early next week. I hope everything proceeds smoothly.


  1. Hi CT,

    Try getting the hospital to help extend your visa so as to not stress out your body !

    You have already gone so far, a few extra days if beneficial to you should not be a hurdle.

    Take care.

    God Bless
