I completed my first round of treatment with a lot of side effects. Eventually got to speak to Registrar last week before starting my second round. It was decided that I get steroid with the Gemzar to lessen side effects and in all had a good week. Went for check up to oncologist yesterday to find that after one round of chemo and Avastin my CA125 is down by over 25pc. I am very happy with that. Today went for 8th day Gemzar to be sent home. My white cell count was too low. I was also told that they are revising my treatment and giving me a lower dose of Gemzar in future to prevent my white cells from misbehaving again. So have a break until the 26th. Since everything is gone downwards so fast, I am beginning to wonder if the prescription for Gemzar was too strong first day.Am kind of fed up, being sent home that never happened me before. I was told rest as much as possible to bring up the white cells for next session. I would love your thoughts on my predicament. I do trust my oncolgist completely and I know the nurses are so careful checking the meds before you get the infusion but I cant help thinking something went wrong somewhere.
