TracyD Posted May 24, 2007 Share Posted May 24, 2007 Yes, it's true ... cancer really sucks. The primary tumor is definitely growing and there are now nodules in my left lung (what I previously considered the "good" lung). The growth is small, but it is no longer questionable. We are moving on to Alimta, had my first infusion today. We were given the choice of waiting until next week, but we're not giving this stupid thing another day to grow. Compared to the carbo/taxol/avastin infusion alimta is a breeze, five hours versus 10 minutes. I can feel the cancer dying (again) already. We've got a lot of plans this weekend with good friends, you know, the kind of people that will let me sit on a couch and wait on me hand and foot if needed. I feel that I'm in a much better place starting chemo this time than last, I'm not as panicky. I asked my doc how many chemos there are to try and he told me that there are lots and that I would run out of patience before we ran out of chemos to try ... I told him I have a LOT of patience. My last treatment lasted 10 months, I figure, if I can get that out of Alimta that will get me to two years, and by then there will something new to try. Have a good night all, thanks for being here.
