Mark and I just returned from the doctor. My CAT scans showed no mets to the bones (yay!), liver ablated (yay!) and lung nodules getting a little too skippy off of the chemotherapy (boo!). So, back on Gemzar for me. I’ll do two weeks on and one week off for two cycles to see if they get back in line. They are still very small, but we still need to show them who’s boss.
I feel fine about this. Gemzar is familiar territory. I won’t be going back on the Avastin just yet since that’s the one that was giving me high blood pressure and threatening my kidneys. Perhaps after more of a rest from it, we’ll re-integrate it into the regimen.
So, no summer off chemo for me. Oh well. At least I can lie by the pool if I’m tired and sip an iced latte. Not such a bad deal.
