Hello all, had my second treatment of just taxol this past Thursday. All in all, not terrible. I get one more treatment of just taxol, then a week off, and then start over for round two with carbo and taxol. Was told blood work would be done at the start of round two, and then we get to see if the CA125 can find its way down from 208. I am now about 5 weeks post davinci surgery, so hopefully some of the inflammation is going down. Its easier to get around now, and I can do a little more around the house.
Thanks to all who post encouraging words. Does anybody have any ideas on raising hemoglobin levels? Mine weren't terrible, but just a little on the low side. Side effects right now are a sore tongue, and fatigue. I never have slept more than 3 or 4 hours at a time anyway, and then wake up to go to the bathroom and can't get back to sleep.
I'm so glad I found this site. Its wonderful to be able to post with women who know what you're going through, and who truly lift each other up.
God Bless All!!!
