Cancer is a medically-intensive disease: lots of tests and procedures. Lots of doctor visits. Lots of time in labs and hospitals, in strange machines, and with tubes and needles. Lots of drugs. Lots of money.
It can all get quite overwhelming and confusing. These pages will serve to outline what I have been experiencing as regards all the above.
This area will be approximately divided into four different categories (although as with pretty much all other areas of this site there will undoubtedly be a lot of cross-referencing and things spilling from one area to another):
The Team ~ Cancer is a labour-intensive medical exercise. There are a lot of doctors, nurses, technicians, lab workers, pharmacists, and who knows what all. This area will list those that I come in contact with, at least by job (I will be asking some that I deal more closely with if I can name them, but for the purposes of this website that is probably not all that necessary. Meet the team →
Timeline ~ As this disease reveals itself, the medical profession also reveals itself. It’s all a matter of things happening at certain times, so the timeline is an interesting part of the process, and I know that for myself as I got more used to being able to predict what might be happening next my anxiety level went way down. So, I will write down the timeline of my experience so that you too can have a more specific idea of what the future holds on a relatively more day-to-day basis. Follow the timeline →
Treatments ~ a description of the various procedures used to treat my Multiple Myelomea, such as the radiation and chemotherapy I have and am undergoing, and later, the transplant and points beyond. Read about treatments →;
Test Results ~ I will be documenting a subset of test results onto a spreadsheet and will publish that as I receive updates (pending) Check my test results →
