Hi everyone, I am at the halfway mark for chemo. It seems the topotecan is working, at least my ca125 is dropping. I am having 2 units of blood today, hopefully after this the procrit will keep my rbc up. I have been on both the procrit and neulasta shots and yet my blood counts have a hard time coming back up. Tomorrow I get a ctscan and then see the Dr on Thursday. One thing I have been fighting is weight gain. I have been walking and on the rainy days using a walking video indoors. This is frustrating! I think I am going to have them check my thyroid on thursday or maybe it's from one of the drugs????
I told my hubby heart disease is in our family and I'll die of a heart attack and not have to worry about the cancer if I don't get some of this weight off. A friend gave me her WW books and have been counting everything but to no avail my weight just keeps creeping up.
Well just wanted to update you and there I go whining... Take Care everyone and God Bless
PS Monica have you had any of your tests back yet?
