Good luck Dibbs.
My new ride (warning Carbon content)
Good luck mate.
If you did have any questions that you though you weren't getting answers to, let me know, Mrs Scud is a therapy radiographer and "Ready Brek's" people for a living but is also trained counsellor so knows her stuff and sometimes you don't get the time to ask or feel like you haven't been given much of an answer.

All the best Dibbs.
Get plenty of rest, look after yourself and get your butt back on the bike soon!!!
Thanks for all the good wishes, today's ride is planned for 15:20.
We're up on your trails tonight, thanks for the birthday wish.
Update, this is what the machine does, pretty painless at the time but the effects (blistering, ulcers, lack of taste etc) build up as the treatment goes on.
I hope you are lying in there visualising which fancy new Whyte you will but to hit the Quantocks again soon.
The treatment must feel really nasty. Hope you are doing as well as you can be given the circumstances.
Sorry to hear you are having radiotherapy mate & all the best.
As rexated says keep thinking about riding the Q's on your next new Whyte & we must have a 'remission riders ride' up there sometime soon.
Only 4 more treatments left (finish next Wednesday), I'm feeling pretty good and the Quantocks are finally beginning to look very appealing out the window (there was a light dusting of snow overnight). I've been off the bike since October so it's going to be a struggle.
Good luck Dibbs, keep fighting.
My Father has Primary Liver Cancer at the moment, luckily he is in France so his treatment is about trying to cure it rather than Palliative as it would be over here.
Hes had targeted radiotherapy and will be starting 3 doses of chemo soon.
Keep your chin up fella
Best Mate who beat b-cell lymphoma 18mths ago likened the whole process to running a marathon:
"it hurts like hell, makes you feel like crap, and leaves you drained for days.....
But people do it every day, which means it is do-able"
I'm feeling pretty good and the Quantocks are finally beginning to look very appealing out the window
tbh, once you do get out even if you're pushing up every hill and just rolling back down it'll probably feel like the best ride ever.
Just finished the last session of Radiotherapy WooHoo!!
Did you annoy Spiderman?
