Well, here we go again. Tomorrow I go back for another bloodtest, see my oncologist, and if my counts will allow get my 6th taxo/carbo chemo.
Last week my neutrophils were too low, so they need to come up a bit. My hemaglobin was 9.0 so I was told by my oncologist's nurse that if it drops to an 8 my oncologist will likely recommend a transfusion for that.
Also, in hopes of offering encouragement to others, my CA125 number last week was 5. I am told this is a very good number. Actually it has stayed a five since the previous two tests as well. I was told that is ok and that it may not go any lower. The CA125 is a good marker for me because post surgery it was 300 per my oncologist.
Wish me luck!!!! I'm nervous!
I wish everyone a good day, peaceful thoughts, and healing healing healing!!!!!
