I don't think he thinks the Aromasin is going to do any good (he may be right, for all I know), but it's fairly clear he thinks that when I see progression on the scan I'll be scared into chemo, so he thinks I might as well just coast for the month.
I'm expecting some progression, since I will also have been off of the supplements that I think have been helpful for two months (they act against the radiation) and because the allergic reaction to the Faslodex will have 1) caused cancer-feeding inflammation systemically and 2) worked against the LDN. My liver started griping me about 2-3 weeks after stopping the ALA, and the chest lump seems to be fluctuating again, among other things.
So unless the progression is extreme, I don't think it will panic me into anything I'm not already prepared to do. I'm inclined to wait on certain decisions until after I see this new doctor, see whether he can suggest a few new options... the real chemo decision may wait until the scan after this next one.
We'll see. I'm going to have to take this a little bit at a time.
We'll see how things go.
