Here's the game plan

Recommended Posts

Saw the onc yesterday. We've decided to start Gemzar again, this time without the carboplatin a week from Saturday. We will also be doing a lower dose hoping this will keep my blood counts from dropping. (Apparently when I was in the hospital my platelets dropped so low that they were very worried I would "bleed out" and I had 2 transfusions of platelets as well as 2 units of blood.

More bad news, I have 2 large lumps in my right breast. They are scheduling me for an ultra sound to see what's up with that!

We upped my dosage on the Duragesic pain patch from 12mcg to 25mcg, hopefully it won't zone me out and will do better with the pain control.

Teri,

I am glad you have a game plan in place and I hear good things about gemzar. You are always in my prayers but I will add a little extra next Sat that all of those little critters die fast with the gemzar.

Keep us posted. Also praying for pain control.

TAnn--

Glad you have the plan in place to fight the beast. Sending prayers that it is the "magic bullet" and also prayers that the breast lumps are cysts. (I've had some really large cysts but yes, they are scary while you are waiting for the results)

Prayers that this will be a complete success- and for the "lumps" not to be something serious.

So good to see your post. I'm sending loads of positive thoughts and keeping you in my prayers.

Keep us updated when you can.

Hugs,
