Alex had to live through four grueling 28 day
cycles of chemotherapy and observation. Each cycle will
involve 5-10 days of chemotherapy, 18-23 days of
observation, ending with an operation to extract bone
marrow and spinal fluid.
During each cycle, usually after the chemo had finished,
Alex's immune system was just about non-existant so he
has had a plethora of infections. The worst was
towards the end of the last cycle.
Fortunatley, Alex pulled through with the help of the
staff at St James's and his family.
