Just a quick update, I can’t film anything right now because I have this nagging cough every time I speak, is one of the side effects of my surgery but it will go away eventually, saw the doctor today and had the best possible news, it was all dead when they removed, also it hadn’t spread to any of the lymph nodes and the chances of recurring are very slim. I still have 4 more chemos to go but I see the pathetic recovery now very clear, it will be a little longer till I can be on the mats but I’ll be back. Thank you everyone for all the support!
