I went in Tuesday for my 8th treatment. Had to skip one week because I have been getting severe rashes, Dr had me miss it for fear my skin would peel, bleed and I could end up with an infection. Last week I began having rather strong pains on my right side. Radiating from my back to my belly button. Could it be appendicitis?, Gall bladder attack? Or........ let's face it boys and girls, I do have stage IV kidney cancer that is in my liver now and, now..... somewhere else? The Dr didn't feel anything unusual during an examination and I'm now scheduled for a CT scan on Monday. It was my left kidney that was removed in April. In addition to having my scan a month early, he has put me on pain pills.
I will find out Tuesday the results..... guess I'm hoping some of you would be so kind to keep your fingers crossed, not to the point of cramping , but enough to send a good vibe my way. I know I've just begun this journey, and it really sucks. Would be really nice to find out the Torisel is keeping things at bay and the pain is nothing to worry about. Any way...... one can dream.
Thanks for listening to me rant.
