    Decision Point

    In October of 2018 I was ready to give up. I was so sick, anemic, white blood count was very low. Oncologist stopped my chemo as I was ready to go on hospice. Wanted me to try experimental immunotherapy for 2 years. Thought I’d try it until the end of the year and see how I felt. My hair started growing back, my white blood count started coming up. Oncologist told me I’ll never be cancer free and the tumors will never go away. They just want to keep them from growing and spreading. Schedule for another CT scan on January 21, 2019. See how it goes

    Symptoms

    I've been sick the last 3 weeks, doctors thought it was colitis, told me to try the BRAT diet. That didn't help, now they think it's a bacterial infection. Hope they decide soon, I'm already lost 6 lbs!!! 103Lbs
