Hello everybody, am writing to have some reassurance, if possible...
I'm on my 4th round of chemo, weekly dose-dense taxol and carbo, for a 5 cm recurrence on the side of my colon and a swollen lymph node next to my collarbone. I started the chemo in September, and the swelling in the lymph node almost disappeared within the first 2 weeks, and the tumour markers went down almost to normal. But then they started going up again, so last week I had a scan, and this shows that the tumour next to the colon is smaller. But today I noticed that the lymph node has swollen again and it's almost as big as it was this summer (2 cm), all in a couple of days. WHY IS THIS HAPPENING???
I will see my oncologist on Monday, but my fear is that the scan showed that the tumour had become smaller, but is in fact already getting bigger (compared to a month ago). Help!
