Good news everyone!
Just finished with Oncology appointment after my first month on. My dosage was 200mgs per day, which I take in the morning.
Saw assistant consultant named Claire.
She was fine and I finally found out what a Registrar was - a doctor who is training to be a consultant.
Anyway, it was All good. Blood counts phenomenal. Totally in the normal range.
CA-125 stable at 15. The same as end of Carbo/Caelyx, but higher than after first line.
I am not disappointed.
It’s early days and amazing that I feel so well!
Meanwhile, I now only need bloods taken once a month and a scan will be every three months.
I have no unmanageable side effects to report. I get slight nausea in the morning, but I still have an enormous appetite! Darn! In my case, as I have gained too much weight for my liking, but always feel the urge to treat myself to goodies that were forbidden before I got sick. Oh well.. the least of our worries.
I feel like my old self, not the new normal I was at the end of first line.
Fingers crossed I stay this well.
Hope all of you are getting good treatment and that you all feel better, too.
