Howdy all, I hope this finds you all doing well. Have your drains come out yet Sue? Well, I am going to loose my poor pitiful stubble once again!! The cat scan results show in the radiologists opinion "virtually no change" and last cat scan before that read"tumours invisible within the normal margins of the cat scan", but I had to see a different onco today as mine was on holidays. Anyway, this guy knew nothing about my history, and was very quiet and had sort of a defetist attitude, he treated me very gently, with great pauses in between sentences etc. He feels the Herceptin is not working(I thought the deal with Herceptin was to keep the tumours from growing?? Which is what it did) So he was going to put me on a drug called Zolodex, but I said well, what about more Taxol as it worked so well the first time, he said no, then he went out to confer with a collegue, and came back all smiles and said, " I spoke to a collegue of mine and he feels you should go back on Taxol, and I agree" Well, duh, did I not just ask that?? Anyway, three more of Taxol, then a ct and then a trip in the first week of May to my normal onco. so my hubby is getting his wish, I will be bald again!! Ah well, the harder the fight, the sweeter the reward.
