Hi everyone. Thanks for keeping me in your thoughts. I did not have the CMF as planned. My CA 153 markers went sky high very quickly & my oncologist was worried that CMF was too slow to work. So he is giving me some more Adriamycin. I had 6 cycles of that last year & there is only so much of it they can give as it is highly toxic to the heart muscle & this will be my lot of that drug but it does work quickly & will give him time to reconsider what we try next. We have both promised each other not to give up on me. As a have had Adriamycin before I am OK with the side effects. I know how to cope with them & it's not too bad second time around. It's the Taxotere I found so hard. I have my #2 cycle on Thursday & am hoping the blood tests show better results this time around.
Love & hugs to all from a very spring like New Zealand.
