How's everyone doing?
I had labs yesterday - thank goodness my WBCs and ANCs finally went back up! I think that flu knocked me down quite a bit.
My CA15 has gone up :-/ My MO thinks it is either cancer progressing, inflammation from the flu, or because of the break I have had from Ibrance (about a month off)
We are doing a wait and see approach since I am not in any major pain. Following the subjective and the objective measures.
Today I had my first Zometa infusion. I took a valium and then had a little medical marijuana afterwards. I am grateful to these medicines to help me get through times like this one today. I was a little anxious and almost didn't take the Valium but at the last moment I realized I was anxious, and decided I'd rather not struggle and feel the discomfort. I am glad I made that decision!
The nurses were great and the infusion went well. I also had a lupron shot in my right upper butt muscle.
Now I am free from any testing for 3 weeks! A break!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!!
Philly is eerie. It is like the streets have been taken over by zombies (lots of people with drug addictions and homeless with mental health issues). Today I walked by a man on the way to the oncology center, he shouted at me, "Its the end of the world!!!!!!!!!!"
