Hi everyone, My tumor markers are staying low on the cytoxin/avastin treatments, we are pleased with the results. I am still having severe headaches and now going to see some other Drs to try and find out why. My bloodpressure has come down from the 100mg of Toprol a day that I take. Not as low they'd like it but great compared to what it was running. I guess most of the people on avastin suffer high blood pressure.

Just wanted to say hello and let you know I am still around and doing amazingly well.

Monika how are you? How's the checkups been going?

Paula how are your treatments going? Have you adjusted to the daily meds?

So many of you to say hello to. I pray for all of you everyday. You all have been such a wonderful source of support and energy. Prayers N Hugs to all. Bonnie

PS For those that are struggling know there are many of us here for you. We may not post all the time but do read your posts and keep you close in prayer.

That is wonderful news that your CA125 is staying low. I am sorry to hear though that you are still having other health issues. I hope they can find some answers for you soon. As always I am keeping all of you in my prayers!

Hi Bonnie! I'm glad to see your markers are staying low. I know Avastin can be very effective, but can be hard on other parts of a body, so I hope you'll find some relief from the headaches.

It's good to hear from you, and great to hear that your CA-125 is 18; I hope this translates into more laughs and love for you!

That is so good to hear Bonnie! I have my first official visit with my new doctor Monday, I will be glad to see what he has to say and see what my counts are now. 3 months ago they were 104, we'll see. I hate to hear about your blood pressure though hopefully they will be able to get that under control.

Well I hope you are having good weather, we are going to get us a big watermelon Saturday and go to the Smoky Mountains and hit some trails and watch the creek. I am excited. God Bless and take care.
