• Starting chemo.

    Asked by JeanB on Friday, May 10, 2013

    Starting chemo.

    I got my test results back today. My MUGA scan was good, my kidney function was good, and my CT scan showed no signs of cancer. My doctor said that my tumor indicators was little high, not bad, but it could be high because of my surgery. My port is healing nicely. I will start chemo next Thursday. Cisplatin and Doxorubicin. On ward and upward!!!!

      All of this is really good news. In spite of the fact that there is more treatment ahead, you'll handle it. Good luck, and all this will pass. You'll get your life back, and it feels great to come out on the other side!

      Chemo isn't the most fun in the world, but with your great attitude, I think you'll kick its butt. Think about stuff to put in your "chemo bag". Books, puzzle books, crafty stuff (if you do knitting or some such), tablet or laptop to pass the time, snacks, juice or water and maybe a cuddly blanket. Fight fight fight!! : )

      I refer to the chemo’s side effects as the Miseries. I just call’em as you feel’um; I tell each symptom get me while you can because you are not going to be around for very long! You miseries are just a temporary inconvenience on my way to wellness.
