....Damn, I just lost a half hour of typing. I was so eloquent too. Excellent Star Trek references. Can't do it twice.
Met with my Dr. today to finalize my plans for radiation to my rib and T6 spine.... I have had fantastic results from MDX-1106. It has devoured more tumors than anyone should ever get. Only a couple left in my soft tissue but we'll kick their ass also. Even had bone mets get destroyed. But somehow a couple of newer invaders have taken up space in my left lower rib and T6 spine. My oncologist said "It's time to get rid of them too."
So I have had more scans. I've been tattooed for reference points. The first radiation will be on the rib. 5 sessions. Once a day. Weekends not included. Then the spine for 3 sessions, every other day. It should start thursday.
I had hoped to ride my motorcycle today to my appt. But was unable to lift my leg to use the brake. (due to pain). I decided riding wouldn't be a good idea, so I drove. Here's hoping that I don't have to do that again.
Infusion tomorrow. Maybe zometa too. My bod will be in an ass kicking mood. Thank your lucky stars that you aren't my cancer! I'll post updates as I go along.
