It does sound promising Pat. And as you say, anyone on a trial gets very good attention.

With both alternatives being good options it's looking good, I think - or as good as it can be.

Thanks for the good wishes folks, and remember that he had no symptoms This has all become evident due to the bowel screening where poop into a tiny hole and send it off

Chris heard that he has been accepted on to the trial yesterday. Today his details were entered into the computer for allocation to one or other part of the trial and it came back with the one we didn't want - the "radiotherapy combined with chemotherapy". It involves attending the hospital every weekday for five weeks for radiotherapy and taking chemotherapy by tablets.

At 6.15pm he got a call from radiotherapy to ask him to attend tomorrow morning for a CT scan to mark him up for pinpointing the beams for the radiotherapy.

That's a shame you didn't get your preference Pat and it sounds like a right slog for weeks on end. But being on a trial they'll look after you well.

Fingers crossed for no bad reaction.

Oh dear hopefully it will be worth it in the end, stay strong.

I hope he doesn't suffer too much Pat, but as Alan said it's the end result which counts most.

Yesterday was the CT scan to pinpoint the exact target. The team were an all female one but he was given an option about which position he laid in while they put tatoos on his nether regions! "It hurts" he tells me afterwards.

He was given the list of dates which, starting in a couple of weeks, cover the whole of October and beginning of November for daily, weekday, visits to radiology. All at different times of the day but none at silly o-clock thank goodness.
I was worried about having to self isolate again because of the chemo but daughter tells me that son in law is on a chemo type drug for his Crohn's disease and he does not have to isolate.

I hope all goes well, I forgot to mention I have to go for a colonoscopy too soon, I have a FIT kit to do and they want the full monty of bloods done as well.
