    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    After 7 rounds of Avistin and Alimpta I am now considered in remission. I now will have only Avistin every 21 days. I will still have CT and Bloodwork every 3 months

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree

    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    Cancer has become active after 4 months on Avistin only. Am going on Taxol and Carboplatin every 21 days starting tomorrow. ?Thanksgiving dinner might not taste as good but being here to enjoy family and friends is even better. Wish me luck
