with my last CA125 count having gone up to 125, we are now just waiting for symptoms of the cancer before starting my second chemo.
The last couple of days, I've had what appears to be asthma. I've had bursts of this years ago, but not for a long time. The cough doesn't pleay up all day but when it does, it doesn't go away easily.
The onc. said for me to ring his offsider (my onc. is on leave) if I experience any of the familar symptoms - the cough brought on by ascites filling my abdomen, leaving not enough room for my lungs to expand or if, for examole, ascites might be back in my lung.
I don't know.
There are some things I really want to do before starting my next chemo (esp having my will signed) so I don't want to rush off in case it really is just a case of asthma (which does run in my family).
Wondered if others were able to tell that the cough was caused by ascites. I know that when I was first diagnosed, I definitely didn't know what was causing the cough, and it wasn't bad then either, even though a CT scan showed me to be filled with "10kg" of fluid!
As I said, I'm not wantint to rush it at present. *Really* want my will completed and afraid that once they start a new chemo that it may not go down as well as the Carbo/Taxol and might give me sickness which might cause me to delay other things.
Can't linger tonight.
Take care all,
Hugs (((( )))))
