Amazing news from the lab, my ca dropped from 121 to 34 after 3 treatments of gemzar! I had a full tumor load on the last ct scan. The pain went after the first dose and the my blood counts were low so the doc gave me reduced dose for 2nd and 3rd weeks. I knew it was working, but it blew my mind to drop #s that fast. Topotecan also dropped me to lower numbers but then they almost immediately started climbing again. I am praying for a some remission time. Going to get a reduced dose of the dexamethasone steroid next time, as I think the crash from that is worse than the side effects of the chemo. We'll see.
