Hi guy's just got back from my fourth treatment, it feels good to say half way there!!! My blood counts both white and red are still pretty low, I got to go on a pill that will help fight infection, can't remember what my Onc called it! Chemo Brain!!! Go tomorrow for my shot. Did any of you guy's get a Muga scan half way thru your treatment, she said it's just precautionary, especially with all the shortness of breath, and chest discomfort I'm having. I guess better safe then sorry! God Bless Vinny

Wonderful Vinny! Half way is good! I guess it looks like I'll be a little while longer to even get started, but I'm ok with that. I feel good so thats all that matters to me.
ONE DAY AT A TIME!!!! I should probably join AA since that is their main moto...ha!
Let us know how you feel in the days to come...hope each round gets easier for you!
Take care...Sue

Oh Vinny I'm so glad your half way done. Way to go. I did not do the Muga scan but had the echo cardio done both before I started treatment and at the half way point.
Are you getting more used to the injections?
Thinking of you, Leslie

Thank's Leslie and Sue, getting two of those shot's kind of wreck me, but they do bring me me to life! hahahahaha. Feeling sick in the stomach tonight, but the Zofran is helping.... Good to hear that they do test you twice for your heart, I think the thought of having problems with my heart scares me more then the stupid cancer!!! LOL......... Vinny

Halfway home and heading toward the home stretch. Good for you. Don't worry too much about the heart stuff. As you said it is precautionary especially since your treatments are closer together. I suspect that's why your blood counts stay low too. They would not have picked that schedule for you if they had any inkling that you could not tolerate it. Hang in there. Mary

Great news and soon the treatments will be over. I only had the muga before treatments. It was better than the cats and pets that I still get every six months.
