Hello. Well the kidney stent's settled down and seems to be working fine. I saw the doc yesterday and he asked when I wanted to start weekly taxol (we'd discussed that as an option already). I said 'tomorrow' but they can't fit me on till next Wednesday. That's probably better as it gives me time to do a few things first, but I want to get on and see whether this chemo gives me any signs of being effective as the last 3 haven't. He says if it's working (shrinkage or just stability) and side effects aren't bad I could be on it for 6 months. I'm a bit worried about neuropathy but have my cute insulated cold bag so I can ice my hands and some vitamin B6.
