CT & Ultrasound -- Medical Update

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,
RivkA

So happy to hear some good news this morning. I am very happy they didn't find any new developments and that your pain is subsiding. Praying the fifth cycle goes well and your body continues to heal.

BH,BH. I am so glad to hear. May your pain decrease along with your flu symptoms. And then may they both disappear! Lots of love,
