Don Wood Posted August 5, 2004 Share Posted August 5, 2004 I decided to post this here -- seemed appropriate. Lucie starts her third round of Navelbine tomorrow and will have another next Thursday. Then scans will be taken to determine progress. Why do I post in Good News? Well, for two reasons: (1) The side effects of Navelbine have been much less than those of Taxotere/Carboplatin, her first chemo. She is fatigued easily, but that has been the main side effect. We have resorted back to snacks between meals and plenty of liquids to keep the nausea down and prevent dehydration. She had some constipation at first but she has that under control. (2) The pain in her right lower rib has subsided substantially! This means, (A) that the chemo is working and (2) she probably won't have to have radiation treatment after the chemo. Blessed us! Lucie continues to read your messages to her and enjoys the wonderful support she is getting from you. Me, too. We will let you know how things progress -- and it will be progress, right? Right!
