Had my PET scan and Oncologist said scan was good and he was happy with results.Had to have scan in Euromedics or whatever they've renamed it,that was a bit confusing to say the least.
Side effects are still a hindrance to living a normal life.Im now fighting a bad chest infection,appetite is reduced,occasionally feeling nausea, severe sweats,low red cell count, chronic fatigue and lethargy .Olaparib is not a cure,it's used in the same way as Avastin, and lengthens the time from one infusion of chemo to the start of the next one.I don't think the Onc was expecting the side effects our little group are experiencing,Olaparib is not what it says on the tin!! So the question is ,is it worth it? I asked could I stay off of it for a month or so but was told no.My dosage along with others has been reduced.
I've another battle on my hands next ,as GP is worried about my low blood pressure and fast heart rate.Ive told her I'm blue in the face from saying it in the hospital.My GP reckons I need Beta Blockers,which I said was good as Beta Blockers are being tested as a treatment for ovarian cancer, along with statins and aspirin and that's an Irish research group investigating this.Have a great weekend,Be kind to yourselves,and leave the peeling of the potatoes to someone else😎🌹🌹🌹🌹🍗🍟
