Hi All. I typed out a long message last night and I don't think it sent and I think it was because I inserted a photo that may have been too large. I always seem to have problems inserting photos which is why my profile picture is a tree!!
Anyway, Mum is due to have her third Caelyx on Friday. The side effects haven't been too bad so far but her hands have started to feel sore and feeling really tight, especially when they get hot. She remembers the oncologist telling her to keep cool and now she knows why!! She has some udder cream to rub on her hands! She keeps cool packs in the fridge. Does anyone have any helpful hints to help with this discomfort please?
We're going out today and we're going to get one of those plastic things that you can freeze so that she can take it with her when she's out and about so we'll try and get one of those insulated carriers to keep it frozen for as long as possible.
Mum met her oncologist yesterday and her CA125 was around 380 and it had been over 400 the last time although Mum didn't see the count at the last appt but when she was told of the recurrence on 6 Jan her CA125 was around 355 then and she had to wait two weeks for a CT scan then another two weeks for her first Caelyx. I feel sure the CA25 would have risen during those 4 weeks so I think it's moving in the right direction.
Anyway, best wishes to everyone.
