Well, I don’t really know what to say, I hate bringing bad news to the forum but it’s looking like I only have a couple of choices left for treatment paths, I have decided to go for the Rotterdam regime, aka Cisplatin/ Etoposide oncologist explained this is a very harsh treatment but believes I’m strong enough to get through it, it gives me 50% Chance of a good result. I won’t even tell you my other two options as they were pretty poor to say the least.
I’m miffed I will lose my hair for the third time, I’ve only just got a nice covering coming through from the last chemo but hay ho it’s got to be done!
Ct results were reasonable, my pulmonary embolisms have resolved but Omental caking has increased along with ascites hence the chemo to start a week on Thursday.
I’m in hospital for paracentesis today ( it’s 3.20am my mind will not shut off ) I’m not looking forward to it but I know I will feel better when it’s done.
I darn well refuse to give in to this crappy disease.
If anyone has been on the Rotterdam regime and can offer any advice I would be very grateful.
Wishing you all well
