I came out of his office and despite his lovely smiley reassuring face, I was in shock, as in all honesty, I hadn’t 40 really expected him to say that I would need another op. ’ not really knowing what I was talking about, so it was like a conversation between someone with their glass half-full and someone with their glass half-empty. I’m relieved of course that it hasn’t spread, because I would then have to have had all my nodes out and probably a mastectomy as well, but I worry they won’t get the clearance again and I’ll end up having three operations in the space of a month and, as well as the physical aspect of it, it is so emotionally draining.

Good news! More good news! Wonderful, life-saving, fantastic Mr Monypenny has got 53 clearance around my tumour and is ‘very happy’ with it. What a bloody relief. No more surgery, hurrah! Straight on to chemotherapy; do not pass Go, do not collect £200. I’m ‘on the good side of bad’ he says, about 75 per cent (not quite sure of what, maths never being one of my strengths) but 75 per cent sounds good. I’ll take that, thank you very much, Mr Monypenny. I think it probably refers to the cancer returning to the same spot.

Rhodri came with me for my results and I was glad, because when I went to get my results from the biopsy I couldn’t take everything in; you need another pair of ears to remember things that are said. Also, I tend to focus on all the negative things but Rhodri could put things in a bit more of a balanced way. BBC Wales, my esteemed employer, are doing a programme about the Heath Hospital and coincidentally they are featuring the lovely Mr Monypenny, so every time I go to his clinic they are there with their bloody cameras, and the last thing I want is to be caught on camera by my colleagues.
