I finished my final chemo today!!!!!!!! Bendamustine w/ Ofatumumab!!! Get a CAT scan in a month with a doctors visit to follow. Onc wants to put me on Ofatumumab maintanence for 2 years every other month. Waiting to see how I tolerate the drug this month. Last month I got a lot of side effects during the week after and she doesn't want me to be miserable with the maintenance.
So we'll see how I do this week , get the scan and blood work and discuss it all. I am torn. Part of me wants to be rid of any treatment for a long, long time. BUT I realize that if I can tolerate the Ofa it will be best and keep the beast at bay. At this point we are looking at a partial remission when they get my test results back so it will still be there, but at a much lesser burden than we saw in May, I trust!
The other BIG news of the day is that my brother got his results from a PET Scan and he is cancer free following treatment for lung cancer!!!!!! Yay!!!!!!!!
What a glorious day! If only I didn't feel like a truck hit me I would go out dancing tonight!! hehe
Thank you all for the continuous support, help, caring, humor, love and just for being there. God Bless you all. And special prayers for Denise and her family with whatever is going on with her at this point
