Sorry I haven't been on for a while. I have been lurking and reading but not quite ready to post.
Last week more results and my second cycle of Etopocide. Unfortunately my CA125 went up again from 534 to 650. However chest abdo and pelvic CT pretty good. Lungs showed two areas of concern which we may attack with radiation and abdomen and pelvic no change! Something to cheer about!
I had chemo Tues, Wed & Thurs and Friday and over the weekend could barely get out of bed. I have never felt like that before. Totally just wanted to sleep, ached all over and then add a bit of misery to that mix! Now I have angry red hot swellings on my right foot, knee and thigh (super attractive!) and heard last night some infection showing up again in my blood test! I am worried I will end up in hospital again today (just had two weeks in a month ago). Thankfully my temperature is still on the straight and narrow. I go to Oncology first thing this morning for Avastin and to change the dressing on my PICC line then to the Oncologist. (I will pack a little bag just in case!)
After 22 months since diagnosis and 23 cycles of various chemos I guess my body is feeling pretty battered & bruised!
Almost forgot to mention - it seems so minor now - I lost my hair again this week so pulled out the scarves etc.
Wish me luck!!! Cheers, Julie
