Last Monday I had my first scan since this flare-up started in mid August. There's some good news, the spots in the bones are stable, the lymph nodes have not become enlarged again, and my onc says we have lots of options available. The bad news however is that there is growth evident in the liver, both on the existing tumors and some new (if very small) lesions. The tumors in the breast have continued their growth too. After extremely significant shrinkage between Feb. and July, they are now larger than they were at diagnosis. What was the larger area in Feb (6cm) is now 5cm and the tumor that was 5cm in Feb is now 7cm.
So...on Friday we replaced the Taxotere with NAVELBINE, weekly. I'll continue Herceptin weekly and Zometa once every 4 weeks. If anyone has experienced Navelbine, please share your knowledge with me.
Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I do you. Best wishes and God bless us all.
