I made it in the Sunday mirror paper and daily mail online.
The reason I want to get my story out there is to let people know there are other options but also to say that you know your own body, you know when something is wrong so if a dr says nothing is wrong, if your not happy be persistent, keeping going back until you get your answers. In my experience drs try to treatment symptoms rather than treating the cause of the issues.
Cancer survivors, please make sure you have regular scans, if the nhs tell you it’s not needed like in my case get it done privately, £320 but could save your life!
So, back in Germany, a full day of treatment, still not finished as have hyperthermia later, had a scan and everything is the same as last time but with softer tissue, so still smaller than in march. As far as I’m concerned that’s good news, as long as it’s not getting bigger I’m happy. Meeting with dr weber tomorrow to discuss trying some additional medication to speed things up a bit.
So I have been here for 3 weeks and I am getting up at 3am to fly back to the uk. It’s been a very busy few weeks and time has gone so quickly, treatment hasn’t been easy at times but much easier then chemotherapy and radiotherapy and also so far relativity successful, the tumour has shrunk and with the medication should continue to do so back home. I get a scan in the uk in 3-4 weeks then plan my next visit back her depending on those results, looking likely to be early August. Leigh xxxx

Hey everyone, just a quick thanks to my friends and family in Devon who raised over £1,700 on their sponsored midnight walk last night and my friends in North Yorkshire who completed a sponsored walk this morning. I really do appreciate everything you are all doing. I haven’t had much treatment today just been chilling and getting to know some of the other patients better, I do have a busy week ahead, can’t believe I’ve been here a week already, hope your not missing my too much!!!

Hey everyone, not much to report today, had my 2nd round of hyperthermia, which was even hotter and has given me a little pain, no pain no gain! Just chilling out in my room watching about a boy, love it. Should find out early next week how well it’s working!! Xxx
This is me before the hyperthermia treatment, was on it for 1 hour and this is the bad boy that kills the cancer. Didn’t look as happy at the end, gets very hot and uncomfortable, but will be worth it!!
