CT Scan results

That was very quick! They called to tell me everything looks good. The reason they did the CT was because my liver enzymes were acting up (as seen in my blood work) which could mean the cancer had metastasized (spread) to my liver, but chemo can also affect it too. Very good news, its just the chemo (yes, a bit of sarcasm there).

I also talked to her about my low hemoglobin counts. She said again its the chemo doing it, there's nothing I can do to adjust for it. I'm anemic now, and will feel more tired, and light headed or dizzy when I get up. The hemoglobin will pick up on its own about a month after I complete treatment.

Last (ever) neupogen shot this morning.

  3. so glad it was good news. My chemo seems to be going on forever, everyone who started after me is finishing and I still have 2 more sets to go in September - can my veins take any more aaaarrrrggghh!

    You will be fine, my oncologist said it would take at least 3 months post chemo to start feeling "normal" again so take it easy on yourself honey xx

  4. Wonderful... wonderful news!

  5. I am so glad you are doing well. Only 1 more to go!

    I think more backyard wine nights should take place.

    Take care!
