About this blog

In January of 2006 my wife was diagnosed with Desmoplastic Small Blue Round Cell Tumor, also known as DSRCT, which is a rare and extremely aggressive form of cancer, usually with poor prognosis for survival.

After months of extensive chemotherapy, several operations, and more chemotherapy we thought she might have an actual chance of surviving. After two weeks of cautious hope our world was destroyed yet again when a scan showed that new tumors were growing in both lungs. There were no more medical means to cure her disease, and eventually she died on January 9th 2007.

To help others who are in a similar situation, my wife and I made this blog, where her entire treatment course is described in detail as a kind of diary. The blog also contains a short description of all the medication that has been part of the treatment.

Overall the operations went well, but Mette was in serious pain for the most part of two weeks, because the pain relief didn't work quite as planned. But the doctors didn't want to let her out of treatment for too long, so she was rehospitalised 17 days after the second operation for further chemotherapy, CIVE (-see the category "Medication" for further information.)

Mette comes home again on August 3rd. The treatment went well, all things considered.
