I wanted to share the news. In the 4 weeks I've been on this new combination of drugs my tumor markers went from 218 down to 59. I was totally taken by surprise and would have been happy if they would have stayed still. I told Randy if I could do cartwheels I 'd be doing them. I am just amazed! We are going with another month of it unless my blood pressure keeps going up(one of the side affects). But my chemo nurse did say I could take some additional meds for the blood pressure. I still just can't get over it, and know people will get tired of my AWE. But that is where I am "in AWE" that it is working.
My doc doesn't think it will destroy it just knock it back enough to give me a chemo break. I'll take what ever it gives me.
I am feeling pretty good, a little more leg pain and the nueropathy in right foot is worse(I couldn't imagine it being worse). But this is a lot easier than a lot of the other drugs.
Pray all is well with you. Bonnie
