Sorry I haven't posted for a while. I have been in hospital for 12 days, home this morning, as I was neutropenic and had an MRSA (golden staph) infection which was in my blood. All good now thankfully after IV antibiotics and wonderful care from my medical team.
Some good news too - my latest CA125 has dropped from 596 to 534 and I am very excited about that!!
Tomorrow I am back on chemo and starting Etopocide with Avastin so fingers crossed we can keep the downwards trend going.
I have had my portocath removed as that seemed to be where the infection emanated from. In hospital they put in a PICC line which is behaving itself to date and if it works well we will probably leave it in for a while. It's not as convenient as the portocath as I have to wrap and seal that part of my arm prior to showering but if it means no infection that suits me fine!
I will catch up on missed posts over the next couple of days and respond.
Sending everyone positivity and cyber hugs.
