I have been so overwhelmed with the flu, that I realize I forgot to update you about the important stuff. (Actually, I did not realize it, until a million people kept asking me about the results!)
The CT did not reveal any new developments. The radiologist did see a "hint" of something on the liver, so we checked that out.
I did an ultrasound. The radiologist did not see anything worrisome.
So, for now, I seem to be doing well.
Recently, my pain seems to have gone down a bit, so that is also a good sign that the new chemo is working.
The oncologist wants to do a PET scan, eventually, but not now. Apparently, you have to be off chemo for at least 2-3 weeks before doing a PET. The oncologist does not want to stop treatment at this point.
I just started my fifth cycle of treatment with the Xeloda and Tykerb.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
