Well I got my scan results back today. It's showing a small reduction in the cancer, but there is more ascities than before, so I'll probably need a drain at some point, though hopefully not for a while. The oncologist plans on giving me another 3 Caelyx then another scan which he says will give a better picture of what is happening (especially as Caelyx takes a bit longer than some treatments to make a difference)
At least hes warned me that due to increased ascities my CA125 will probably have gone up again, it makes you wonder, because the largest nodule ive got is only 1.1cm....how do the dratted beasties put out the ascities when they are so small!!!! He's not worried about my skin, as the shedding shows its healing nicely! I still feel like a snake.....thinking of changing my name to Hissing Sid! (ok, how many of you remember Captain Beaky and Hissing Sid?)
Overall, not as good as we'd hoped, but not too bad. It explains why I had no feeling one way or another going into this appointment! I kept wondering if I could be bloating, but was never sure enough to discuss it!
Chemo 4 on Tuesday, then the bathroom people are back on Thursday to continue with our bathroom....busy busy busy
