It has been four weeks since my last lab test, and seven weeks since my last chemo. My CA-125 went from 60 to only 79. That is a much smaller increase than when I ended my second round of chemo. I was very happy.
I will start on homone therapy now. I will start on aromasin which is a newer aromatase inhibitor. It is like Femara, like several others on on. It will be interesting to see if it does anything to slow down the rise of the CA -125. I won't go back for six weeks.
I still will continue with the daily blood thinner shots. I sure have some sore spots in my abdomen from these shots.
I still have problems with nausea. I have even resorted to getting " sea bands" that people wear on cruises to help with ea sickness. They cause acupressure to help with nausea. They seem to be working. May be just a placebo effect, but I will continue to wear them.
Still don't have hair coming back yet. We've been havin 100 plus temperatures, so I have not worn my wig for weeks.
Wishing everyone a good weekend. In peace and caring.
