Rabbit - I hope everything stays stable. those images...... different radiologist might measure them in slighty different areas was an answer I got what told overall looked better but seemed to be larger......... I'm hoping a gastrostromal tumor first detected in August was the result of being very constipated, perhaps a bad image. Constipation seldom happens to me. I was encouraged to have surgery ASAP since it had never been detected before and was assumed to be very aggressive. I am waiting to see what the next scan sees scheduled first week in January. I seem to be otherwise asymptomatic for the tumor as far as any pain, twinges digestion etc. I had one removed in February which had been there for years. Surgery was recommended then because it was starting to constrict the bowel.
Low neutriphil count - my oncologist is suggesting I only take 75mg. It did not pick up as expected when it was dropped from 125mg in Sept to 100mg. If Dec blood work still shows no improvement it is probably time to drop it again . I just got another box of 100mg so would not start the lower dose until January. I do not have the fatigue I expereinced when first starting the 125mg dose. But with Covid still running rampant having a healthy immune system is even more important
