Well I gave alternative treatment a great shot and was very compliant with that for nearly 2 months. But...
Today I got results of blood work and scan and learned that cancer is progressing in lymph system from clavicle down. My CA125 jumped another 70 points (about 50% in 5 wks) so all the dieting did not stop Chester from marching on!!
The plan: start Abraxene chemo as soon as possible. They are working on getting insurance coverage.
I learned a couple new things. That UPSC cells have a protective "armor" that makes it particularly treatment resistant. And I am "Sparc (sp?) positive" which is a good thing since I have a better chance of treatment working than if Sparc neg.
So that's the latest. I'm officially off the diet that didn't kill Chester. I think we all can just give this fight the best we can give it and then God calls the rest of the shots. I really need to turn this over to God.
May we all receive whatever we need to carry on and do what we need to do. Hugs to all,
