It has been over a month and a half since I lost complete control and sensation of my right side. The Avastin and Irinotecan combination as an IV drip at the Greenslopes Hospital, while making my own rehab program and attended 2-3 yoga classes a week, has helped my neuroplasticity to gain a small amount of my control and sensation back.
The treatment has cost more than excepted, as I am now in a higher dose. But due to Jeremy’s Fund Raising and all the kind and generous people donating, I will not be at much out of pocket. I am very grateful for all the donations and wonderful messages getting me through this treatment.
My Instagram account (mexoutnabout) has videos to document my weekly progress over the last few weeks. It showed the first week of Avastin and Irinotecan where I can barely move a centimetre in my right side, to week four where I can walk in a crutch and move my shoulder over my head. I can notice the improvement daily, giving me more inspiration to continue.
I have now had three treatments of Avastin and Irinotecan, with three more to come. Hopefully the rehab and recovery continues to progress as well as the last five weeks!
