I've been reminded that I am being remiss on the whole Posting To The Blog issue. It's been 19 days since the last post.
Sorry about that!
Part of the problem is that I don't have a lot to report. But for what it's worth, here it is:
This is Week 3 of the Abraxane. Some stuff is worse than the Adriamycin/Cytoxan combo - spectacular bloody noses, joint and bone pain, neuropathy ('pins & needles' in hands, feet, and back) that sort of thing. But some stuff is better - less fever, less nausea, less deep hopeless depression.
All things being equal, I prefer the Abraxane to the A/C. That depression really was not a Good Thing.
It will be several more weeks before I can find out whether it's actually doing anything to slow down the tumors. Cross your fingers for me, please, I can use all the luck I can get.
Now I have an entire week sans poisoning to look forward to, which is nice. This is called a 'chemo vacation'. Which sounds like it should be something really exciting, doesn't it?
