Mark Hoppus has described the side effects of chemotherapy as feeling "like a poisoned electrified zombie leaning up against an electric fence," so for him to say he feels "pretty okay" after his latest round sounds like a huge win.
Over the weekend, the blink-182 bandleader updated fans on his current state of health. "Chemo recovery day project, although I feel pretty okay, considering they said these last two rounds would be the worst. Small victories. I’ll take ‘em," he captioned a photo of a completed lego bonsai tree.
With this one down, he's only got one more round of chemo left to go!
See Mark's post below.
Mark first publicly revealed he had cancer in late June. Since then, he's taken fans on his journey from bad chemo days to cancer gardens to playing bass for the first time since his diagnosis to getting the good news that chemo was working.
“Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it’s the best possible news," he revealed last month. "I’m so grateful and confused and also sick from last week’s chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer.”
