So here I am again!  Back in Bad Salzhausen but a different season this time.  I arrived to a dark and cool -2 degrees!  The walk from the hotel to the clinic can be a bit bracing at times but thankfully it only takes about 4 minutes.  I had another full body hyperthermia this week which I found quite uncomfortable for most of the two hours.  The highest temperature was 39.9 for about 20 minutes so was quite glad when it was all over!  I have another one next week so I am not looking forward to that.  As usual, there are quite a few Aussies here plus Americans, Canadians & Brits so plenty of people to chat to.  One guy, Tim from South Australia, has hired a car so I have been out a few times for a drive in the countryside.  It is always good to get out of the clinic for a change of scenery.  My friend from last visit, Sylvia, arrived last night so we have been busy catching up in between appointments today and it is good to see her again.  Tomorrow, after treatments, I am going on a train to Aachen which is near the Dutch and Belgium border for two nights.  I am meeting up with my friend Martin who is coming over from the UK on the Eurostar.  There are xmas markets on so we are going to check them out.  Am really looking forward to it, will update next week when I return....

Pictures from Bad Salzhausen main street and surrounding parks


  1. Lovely photos! They show how beautiful the countryside is around the clinic. But the company is the most important thing, and I couldn't hope for a better fellow patient to share experiences with (and to have a laugh with!) than you - I'm so pleased to have met you (in spite of the grim reason we've met), and look forward to many more good times hanging out!

  2. Great photos Linda, I hope you enjoyed your time with your friends on the border, and the Xmas markets. They are truely fantastic, and you just want to take EVERYTHING home with you. Nice to hear that Slyvia is back there with you, sounds like you are great company for each other. Stay out of the rain and snow, and most of all, take special care of yourself. xx


  3. Linda. My wife and I are attending Dr Herzog's clinic from next Wed (30th Nov 2011). My email is I'd like to run a few things by you if you don't mind based on your experience of the clinic. If you are happy to liaise please email me directly and I'll respond


  4. Linda, You sound like you are doing really well. I bet it is nice knowing Dave, Sooze and the kids are back in Oz now they are close by (relatively!). Good luck with the next round of treatment.

  5. Hi Linda
    Just a quick note to see how you are going. Bet you are glad to be home with the girls. Bill appears to still be much better & no pain. Still feeling the effects of the chemo but also suffering jet lag so will see in a few days. It was great meeting you at the clinic & you made my days bright!! Thanks for your friendship. Have a great xmas & a healthy , stress free new year!!
    Love Annie xxx
    P.S. have not set up my page yet but will try & do it by xmas

  6. Thank you so so much for your wonderful pictures and information about Dr. Herzog's Fach Klinik. I too have a metastasis to the bone of breast cancer and am research German clinics with the intention of going there as soon as possible to obtain Extreme Thermal Therapy. I've never had chemo (though have had breast cancer since 2003), but since the cancer is spreading very rapidly in my bones I think I'll try it. Would appreciate any wisdom you could offer me. Also, am interested that you stayed in a guest house. Am thinking that would reduce the cost. Would you give me the contact information? Would love to chat by email. Thank you so much, and A THOUSAND BLESSINGS on this journey you are on! Linda
