The following day I went to the hospital and had an ultrasound, the doctor told me there and then that i had a tumour and it was most likely cancerous. This was a massive fright, it went from one moment having a great summer working and traveling with friends to being in a hospital thousands of miles from home talking about tumour types and survival rates. I returned to Ireland a few days later and I had my right testicle removed. From September to November I underwent chemotherapy. It was weeks and weeks of feeling terrible but I knew it was something I had to do and that it was ultimately going to make my life better. When I finished the chemo I thought my life would go back to normal but honestly the hardest part of my cancer journey has been the time from when the chemo finished until I realised there were supports available for people like me. I had very bad days of feeling lonely and bored and I felt like I had nobody to talk to. Thankfully I have found people who have been through similar situations as me and I look forward to getting involved smile emoticon
Bloods all came back good and I'm now six months cancer free which happened in early June.
thank you danny xx#
