HI All,

Just jumping in Frog to say that I hope tomorrow goes well. You're getting through it, week by week by week.

I have been in hospital since Thursday 31/5 with an embolism. I am allowed out today on "Ward Leave" which has been great. I am just about to head back in. They are not sure what has caused the clot so I was put on heparin immediately then changed to clexane injections on Saturday. I have 2 ultrasounds set for tomorrow as they suspect that the embolism may have developed in my femoral artery or the arteries in the back of my new knee (so could be a complication from my knee replacement). The other thought is that it's micro vascular disease (actually they seem to know very little). However, some good news is that they did a neck to toe CT, and it was clear.

I really didn't want to jump back into the rabbit hole, but unfortunately here I am. Hopefully it's not because of the tamoxifen, as I have tolerated it very well compared to exemestane and letrozole. I will let you know.

Good to hear from you Alyson. I hope everyone else is trucking along well.

Thank you Nik, for the kind words. Till now I find Taxol more doable than AC. But early days. I have only had 2 Taxols till now. Third one coming up on monday. I have heard Taxol effects are cumulative.

I hope you are doing much better than when you last posted. Congrats on the CT. Have a good weekend
