Thanks for your reply. I haven't started the daily two hour round trip but I know what you mean. It will be a drag but a necessary one. Fortunately, the radiotherapy unit Peter is attending is just out of the city on our side, so I don't have to worry about
leaving earlier in case the traffic is virtually gridlocked as it is sometimes in Melbourne. There is traffic but not too bad. Hopefully they will schedule it for early afternoon so we will miss most of it.
Well I hope that Peter is as lucky and doesn't have the diarhoea. If he does we will be in a mess, because Peter can't move quickly like the rest of us to get to the loo. Never mind, if it happens it happens, we will survive it.
I will keep you posted on Peter's progress during his RT.
Again, many thanks to you all, and best wishes to you all on your own personal journey with Pca.
