Post-op radio and chemotherapy
Jarvis was to have eight weeks of daily radiotherapy starting with one hour sessions, reducing to half an hour for the last four weeks. At the same time Jarvis was having a weekly dose of chemotherapy.
During treatment we stayed at CLIC House in Bristol. It was unbelievable how that made things easier for us. Ann Grady, the Assistant Manager, was brilliant and always had time for a chat and generally brightened our day. Everyone who has stayed there will tell you the same thing – she is an angel.
After finishing the radiotherapy Jarvis had four weeks off before the hard slog chemo was to start. In this time we went for a family trip to Scotland to visit my partner’s family. We also held BBQs for the footy team as a thank you for coming to visit and just tried to ‘be normal’.
