Hi everyone. They decided last week that the Adriamycin second time around was not working so after 2 doses have abandoned it. MArkers are rising to new highs again so they are trying Zeloda. I am given a 15% chance of it working. Side effects minimal so far (mostly nausea). I am having more radiation in left shoulder as tumour has flared there in shoulder joint. Also tumour in C7 vertebrae growing & causing semi-paralysis in left leg. Hopefully this treatment will knock it back enough to avoid the wheel chair option for a bit longer. This bloody disease is nibbling away at my quality of life but I will not give in. They will have to drag me out kicking & screaming. If I have problems I will get hubby John to post for me. He fell down the stairs last weekend (no not on the bottle) & is walking with a cane like me. We have one good pair of legs between us right now.
Love & hugs to all
