Chemo 6 complete!

i had my sixth and possibly final chemo at least for awhile. It went smoothly and as usual I had one or two friends to keep me company. It makes the time go so much quicker. On the down side I am having a Doppler on my legs today to insure that I am not having a blood clot. My left leg feels a little different and since I had a pulmonary embolism 9 years ago it's better safe than sorry. My ct scan in June 28 with my dr appointment on July 11. We are going on vacation the last two weeks of July so I'm having all of this a little earlier than the 6 week usual plan. Since I have clear cell we are cautiously optimistic. They actually have a possible chemo set for the same day in case it's determined that I need more. I'm not a pessimist, but I am a realist and know that I could be a person who will need long term treatment if not immediately, but in the near future. They don't do bell ringing at my cancer facility, but I do feel better that I will at least have a bit at a rest before anymore possible chemo. Celebrating with friends tonight!

    Good for you!

    How great to hear you have finished.  I know I am cautiously optimistic about my chances that chemo will not be needed again.  Hopefully you will get stronger fast, no clots either, so you can have a good summer.  Hugs Nancy

    Congratulations.  Hopefully this is the last you have to do but it is time to celebrate.  I had to have 6 and while I really thought I would never be through it did go by faster than I thought.  It was May to Aug.  Enjoy, Celebrate then rest for a few days.  trish

    Congradulations Soup.  I

    Congradulations Soup.  I start my treatments next tuesday and look forword to finishing mine.  Since I hade cancer 20 years ago I do know what it feels like to finish.  I did do chemo back then but for some reason the day I remember the most is the day I finished my first round of radiation because it was my birthday too.  Even though I didnt feel good, it was a great day.  I hope you enjoy this time and I do hope you get to be done with the chemo for good
