I am still fighting this darn ear infection. The lump on my neck is getting bigger and more sore. The oncologist says it may be from the ear infection. The ENT says it may be from the cancer. In the mean time I feel like I am losing time. The effects of the brain radiation are slowly wearing off. I only had 1 abraxane treatment so far so the docs say it is too early to tell if it is working. I feel like if it was working the lump would not be getting bigger. It may be getting smaller yet but definately should not be getting bigger.
Anyway, because of all this I got a hold of a patient advocate and has put me in touch with Dr. M Cristofanilli. He is an expert in triple negeative breat cancer and I will be seeing him on Tuesday! Please say some pryers for me. I am very excited to see this doctor. He has worked at MD anderson and Fox Chase. He has recently transferred to Jefferson University Hosp so I am very fortunate to be able to see and to get in so quickly.
