One treatment left

Hi everyone!  Haven't posted in a while.  Had my 11th treatment on the 3rd and it was my worse one yet!  Threw up all day Wednesday and basically was in bed until Sunday.  But this is starting my good week so things are looking up.  Get my last treatment on the 17th and then my PET scan on the 27th.  God willing, everything is good and I'll be NED.

    Almost done, you can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm sure your scan will be good. Good luck with your last treatment and hopefully you won't be as sick. Let us know your good scan results.

    Hello
    Nd strenghWishing you a clean scan!
    It will feel so good to be done with treatment

    Each day you will feel better but it stinks when chemo
    makes us so sick.

    I may be facing Avastin treatments and hoping I can tolerate and keep working.

    Take care and wishing you all clear and strength - Barb

    YES!!!

    I'm so glad you are almost done!  When I had my last one, all the nurses at the treatment center came in with a cupcake and sang "Happy Last Chemo to You!".  I cried like a little baby.  It was just emotional and I was so happy it was over!!  Good luck!!

    I have been NED for about 10 months now and feel so much better.  I'm happy for you.

    Great news!

    Great news Cynthia!  My husband had his last treatment (12 of 12) yesterday.  He had also said since his 11th treatment he'd been feeling the worst - no vomiting, but lots of burping and fatigue.  Our onc. was on vacation and they were short nurses, so it was nothing special.  The followup plan that they kept telling us they'd review on his last treatment was never done.  Going back in 6 weeks for the followup we'd been asking about for months.  Different answers about flushing the port also a little irritating.  The home health care people who just plug his pump up are not so good, but hopefully we won't have to deal with them too much in the future. 

    I hope you feel better soon and celebrate your last treatment!!

    Oh Cynthia...forgot to tell you

    Cynthia-

    Just wanted to let you know that my CEA continued to escalate from the first treatment to the last.  It never got lower.  As a matter of fact, after my last treatment my CEA levels were at their highest.  The doctor was disappointed, as was I, of course.  He told me he was going to let my body rest before he checked it again.  I finished in September and he checked me in November.  By then, my CEA had fallen well within the normal range.  Every blood test since then has reflected normal blood levels.  Just wanted you to know so you don't panic if your CEA levels are high when you complete your treatments.  You may have a case like mine and they drop soon after the last treatment.

    Just sayin...

    Thank you everyone for the

    Thank you everyone for the well wishes!  Had my labs yesterday and my ANC count was .8.  Normally if it's under 1.0 I have to get those Neprogen (sp) shots but they let it slide.  I'm just hoping my counts are good enough next Wednesday for my last chemo session.
