I am going for my first post treatment CAT Scan and blood work tomorrow at U. T. M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Won't know the results until the following Monday. So far I feel great. A little tired after the chemo, otherwise feel fine. Taxol/carbol last one was Feb 22. My CA 125 has been in the 10's for the past 2 months. Last one was Feb. 22.
Keep me in your prayers. I have decided that either way I think they have done all they can do for me so far. Hoping for the best. Since this whole thing started (I posted a summary of my diagnosis and treatment in my profile) if I would have seen the magnitude of what the treatments would ensue I would have been discouraged and afraid. Taking one day at a time and not trying to worry myself crazy has helped. Now that it is near the end of the first phase of treatment I am nervous. Trying real hard not to dwell on what might be, but rather to look at the positive of where I have been. I am at least 95% cancer free if you take into consideration the fact they cut out most of it during surgery, (doc said he felt like he got it all), then radiated it for 6 weeks, and poisoned it for good measure. If there is any cancer left I hope it knows I mean business and won't give up until it is gone.
I find the posts here inspiring. I read every one of them, even though I don't respond to them. Keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers. Norma
