Redouble the prayers. Ann O
Well, I am NOT in the 10 %. I have had progression despite that potentially wonderful drug. One of the blood tests looked a little hopeful but the reality is that the last plan was pretty much a failure. I am stopping two chemos as of today, and starting a new one early next week sometime.
The new one can be risky from a heart rhythm standpoint, and I am already having troubles in that department, so the cardio-oncologist will monitor things closely. It also causes nerve damage, especially for people who already have chemo nerve damage, but I think I can deal with it.
We have some scans and things to do, but we don’t have to wait for them to be finished to start the new chemo, they’re more to just get an objective measurement of where we stand.
I don’t know exactly what the chances are that this new one might help, the oncologist said the range is variable and the published research studies are awfully depressing so I’m not going to think about that today.
