Good Results


Recommended Posts

Thanks all for your encouragement. I did show shrinkage - another 20%, so my 8 cm tumor is down to 5 cm. Still have a ways to go , but the chemo regimen is still showing benefit. I'm on carboplatin and gemcitibine on a 21 day cycle. It's a trial where the dosage is higher than normal and the treatment plan is based upon the protein in the tumor. (they started with a needle biopsy).

I do continue to have a problem with my red blood count - I take a multiple vitamin, and an iron supplement and aranespa (was every 3 weeks, but my dr just changed to every 2 weeks).

My scan also showed a pneumonia. But the doctor isn't worried about it since I have no symptoms. He thinks it make by from the radiation I had in June. And he told me to keep swimming.

Sorry this is so long - I'm just so happy to feel good and have good news. Every day is precious!
