Had yet another of my weekly trips to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA), my home away from home. I also had an extra trip of Wednesday for a CT Scan.
I saw the medical oncologist, himself, (rather than his PA). I see the medical oncologist about once every three weeks.
The report of the CT was not back, but the MO reads all the slides himself anyway. There were no new nodules, and the old nodules did not seem to grow. The old nodules had a more dense appearance, which the MO made light of.
The high creatinine seemed to clear. So I received the full treatment: Taxol and Erbitux. That's good.
It seems that I will be on this chemo regimen for a long time.
During infusion, my hand started bleeding and got the call-button/tv-remote colored. Once noticed, it was easy to stop the bleeding.
A nurse noticed that one of my toes seemed infected; so, I got a course of antibiotics. The cracking on the hands and feet is being handled by CeraVe, an OTC lotion.
Two days post chemo: I feel quite good, except for the extreme fatigue. Rick.
