Stable results

Hi All

It’s been a while since our last update, but in brief my Meso is STABLE!

I had a scan 6 weeks ago to get to the bottom of a blood clot on my splenic vein. After a 5 week delay on results, it was confirmed the blood clot is no longer there and nothing to worry about. 

I then had my 3 month Meso scan 2 weeks ago, and results were reported within a week which is the quickest of all time! They confirmed the nodule near my chest wall has grown slightly from 6-10mm, but as so small in Meso terms they class it as ‘Stable’. The lump on my scar tissue is still present, but as it doesn’t show on my CT scan and I feel well, they are not concerned.  Therefore, back in 3months for another CT scan! 

I feel fortunate I didn’t suffer too much with COVID & my 1 lung, I am now back at work, and everything going well. Holidays and activities booked to keep on making those memories with family and friends and appreciating what we have.

Lots of love

Dave & Ali xxx

    1. Thank you so much for getting in touch. Really do hope everything goes well with your recovery. It’s amazing what you can train the body to do. I just see it as I get out of breath quicker than someone with 2 lungs. But if you can put the training in, you can slowly build up to do whatever you want. Recently I walked up a 800m mountain in Lake District! It was tough and it takes me longer than everyone else, but just completing it gives me great satisfaction.
      If you have any questions or just want to chat do get in touch. (Staleydavid@hotmail.com)
      Wishing you all the best in your recovery
      Dave
