Had my doctor's appointment this week. It was 5 weeks since my last marker was done. It was 357 last time and 360 this time. I cold not believe it was such a small increase. My lab was not back yet when I saw the doctor. So he ordered a CAT scan to be done the end of January which would be three months from the last one, and repeat lab.
When I got the results the next day, I called t see if I really needed to have the CAT scan. I do not need one at that time. I will have a repeat CA 125 the end of Jan.
My daughter bought me bio cucurmin several years ago. Either I was on chemo, or nauseated, so I never took it. I tried it and it made me more nauseated. Well I started it when we came to Florida. I don't know if is one of the reasons for the small increase in theCA 125. I know many have talked about the advantage of tumeric. I'll see if the results are as good the next time.
I will continue the Aromasin and blood thinner shots. I also have several cups of green tea most days. Don't know what's woking, but I will continue doing what I am doing.
The doctor told me I will need t have chemo again, which I new. I asked him if he would recommend the Cisplatin/Taxol again. He said probably. Or we could do just Cisplatin alone, or Taxol alone, or try Doxil. I asked if Doxil was available now and approved for uterine cancer. He said yes it is available and got approved recently by NCCN guidelines. He said we could try Doxil and keep the cisplatin/taxol in the back pocket. Or do the cisplatin/taxol and keep Doxil in the back pocket.
I told him I would rather do the Cisplatin/taxol because I know it works. i am afraid of the side effects of Doxil. Fear of the unknown, not nowing what side effects I will have.
Hope you are all having a good day. In peace and caring.
