After 3 rounds of Caelyx (Doxil) with awful awful side effects and rising CA125 I have now completed my first round of Gemcetabine (Gemzar). Thankfully no side effects at this stage however first blood tests have shown my CA125 has DROPPED from 425 to 306!!!! I am so excited!!! After several months of bad news at each visit to my Oncologist this is such a wonderful way to start the New Year. Next week I start on my second round of treatment and I can't wait to get into it! I was struggling to remain positive and was slipping further and further down but that one wonderful result has turned me around. I am also feeling much better in myself now that he Caelyx (Doxil) is out of my system. My skin has almost healed though I feel a bit like a snake with the peeling!!
I do wish you all a happy, healthy and loving New Year.
