Well it's been a while since I posted although I do follow the board. This friday will be port placement day and Monday starts the first round of chemo for recurrecnt EC. Radiation seemed to knok it back a bit but not good enough. So on with Cisplatin and Taxotere. I'm really kinda spooked about this one, I just can't shake a feeling, maybe it's because I've known pretty much what was happening since May 21st. Thats a long time to think you know.
I know stay positive ...and for the most part I do. The high dose radiation caused inflamation and swelling inside my chest wall which is quite uncomfortable and pretty painful at times. Lortab helps but it's been since end of August and now on steroids to allevite systoms but not my much is happenings. At least both my occurences were caught early so I want to feel pretty good about it.
If any of you know of a person experiencing any difficulities with swallowing and excessive heart burn PLEASE convince them to at least see a doctor. You never know until they look that all is well and too late may just be too late.
HAPPY NEW YEARS
TO ALL OF US
