    Eims, you ARE a good

    Eims, you ARE a good person..!  Well, I for one am right here..  Had the CT yesterday and of course the obligiatory arm stabbing to go with it (blood tests).  Tomorrow I get the results..  Oh yes and later today, the new drugs Inlyta show up. 

    I do suspect / hope that many are moving forward and living.   Thus we may not see some until their next 90 day or 6 month scan time.  This is good..

    Take care..!!

    Woman sues hospital...

    Woman sues hospital for husband's lack of sex drive.
     
    A recent article in the Kentucky Post reported that a woman, Anne
    Maynard, has sued St Luke's hospital. She says that, "after her husband
    was treated there recently, he lost all interest in sex".
     
    Asked about St. Luke’s reaction to the suit, a spokesman for the
    hospital replied, "Mr. Maynard was actually admitted in Ophthalmology. 
    All we did was correct his eyesight."

     

    YES!!! I'm still here

    This is for Ron

    Inlyta you say....as you probably know elevated BP is one of the things they look for.  Supposedly some rise in BP indicates the drug is working...too much and they pull it.  The first time I was on it I monitored my BP at home... it spiked and I came off the drug.  After a time on Afinitor and a change in oncologist we circled back to Inlyta.  Because....wait for it......seems I was taking my BP wrong and that accounted for the elevated readings....operator error!  So now I'm back on Inlyta 5mg twice a day.  BP is up but under control....as my oncologist said when I expressed concern about elevated BP causing me to come off the drug a second time....   "... we have lots of ways to deal with high blood pressure...and only a few ways to fight renal cell carcinoma... if the Inlyta works for you we aren't going to let high blood pressure stop you."   No Prisoners!

    If only the same thing applied to LFTs! Alas, for the likes of Ron and myself, it doesn't  :-(

    I've been here, still reading eeveryone's post with my mom:)

    maybe it really was international scan day yesterday! My mom had her chest, abdo, pelvis yesterday too. She was very pleased to not have to drink that thick white oral contrast, but a different one that just looked and tasted like fruit punch snapple!

    we are meeting with our concologist to stater votrient Thursday. Wish us luck!

    I'm around

    After losing much time after my IL-2 treatments, I'm trying to catch up on the things I've missed. Like yard work, golf, and squeezing as much summer into these last few weeks. I'm anticipating good results and therefore going back in for a couple more weeks of IL-2 shortly. That will wipe me out for the fall. Hard to be everywhere. Here is where we need newbies to be more active.
