UPDATE FROM 8-27 POST

CT Scan from last week turned out good. My Dr. and I discussed being able to take up to a 4 week break from the Cisplatin if the CT result was favorable. I arrived Yesterday and the break was "A Go" until I showed him my right foot which I cut 8 days earlier and ends up the foot was full of Staph and Cellulitis. I took an hour drip of Vancomyacin and sent home with oral antibiotics too. Good news is, next week if the foot is on the mend, I will most likely take one more Cisplatin, and then take a break.

Best

Mike

    congratulations

    On your continued success Mike.  I took my first cisplatin three weeks ago, wound up 8 days in the hospital.   You are a tougher organism than I!

    Whoo Hoo on the scan, Mike!!!

    you are amazingly tough!  Sorry about the infection....damn, cellulitus and staph in a foot must hurt a lot!  Ah, but a break from chemo coming up....something to look look forward too.

    Gotta take of all the body parts dude! Sure don't need you to get totally infected and have your foot fall off, especially since you been through all the hard stuff. Glad to hear all is well.

    ME EITHER

    I have had Staph/Cellulitis 6 different times earlier in this journey, but my last case was 2 years ago. I got complacent by that, and with my blood counts low, I developed another this time.
