I had a CT scan on Friday. I let them use my arm for the IV instead of my port. Barely into the scan my vein blew, so the contrast was just going into my arm. They didn't hear me when I complained of the pain, so we got a good scan. But my arm was really swollen and quite painful. The arm is much better now.
My onc called at 6pm, he didn't want me to have to wait through the weekend. We'll be changing my chemo again. He mentioned cisplatin (or carboplatin. I can't remember.) and gemzar or euribulin. One of the lymph nodes is larger, and there is fluid in the lining of my lungs (both right and left). There is not enough fluid to drain, so the thought is that chemo will take care of it. We'll finalize plans after we have the results from Monday's brain MRI. I'll keep you posted.
