Just received my 1st results after 2nd round of chemo. The mass in my right lung has shrunk in height (not in width) but has a cavatiy in the center, I think this means it has a hole in the center, my left lung mass has shrunk from 9.8 to 8.2 PRETTY GOOD I THINK.
This Tuesday I will have my third chemo treatment (I get them once every three weeks). Then I will be marked for Radiation which will start the following Moday (August 10th) I will need 2 weeks everyday on two spots on my center back they are concerned it they grew any I would be paralized because of the spine.
If things go well I wont miss any chemo treatments, I worst would probably set me back one week. I really want to keep the chemo going since it seems to be doing some good.
I have also somehow gotten a sinus infection or head cold, so Im on anti biotics and cough medicine. The coughing is the worst since I have mets to my right ribs it hurts terribly to cough, but I'll get through it!
I have been issued oxygen but only really use it to shower, I guess it has something to do with the heat. I also can walk around the house fine but can't breath when I go outside, anyone else having this problem?
Wishing everyone a good week.
