I'm still here - just took a little blogging break...
I had a routine appointment with my oncologist last Monday (a week ago). After some discussion about how severe the side effects of the treatment were, the doctor decided to decrease my weekly dosage by 20% AND I don't have to "make up" any additional treatment weeks (yay!). Last Tuesday was the first decreased dose and boy, let me tell ya - it made ALL the difference in the world! I felt a little bit achy but nowhere near like I had been feeling so I was VERY thankful for that. It's like I have this new attitude now - like 'yes, I CAN get through this...'
The only not-so-great thing that came out of the appointment was that I will have to go have a few x-rays on my spine. I've been having some pain there. My doctor DOES NOT believe the cancer has spread...he said that's very rare while undergoing chemo...so this is just a 'get it checked out to be safe' type of thing.
This morning is another chemo treatment. We got more snow overnight so I've gotta get moving to be on time...my car needs to be cleared off and warmed up...oh, the joys of living of MI...I believe today's HIGH temp won't even be double digits...brrrr!!!!!!!
Have an awesome day!
