Happy new year to each and everyone one of you x May 2013 be a good year.
This OC really is like being on a roller coaster. In September Whilst finishing weekly taxol for a third reoccurence my marker started to shoot up from 10 to 14 then 44. Chemo was stopped and I was put on Letrozole. WE took a holiday and I felt ok. On return my marker had shot up to 179 but a scan showed a small amount of disease and was stable. I was due to see Onc 2nd Jan, however, xmas eve, was taken in as had large build up of ascites, and 4 litres was drained off. Doctor said clearly I would be starting chemo again 2nd Jan. I had a scan Friday and a blood test yesterday. We rang late yesterday as clearly the fluid is on the increase again and to,schedule a drain for wednesday when I go for chemo to be told my scan was ok, only a few subtle changes and My Marker had gone down to 80!!!!
I'm absolutely gob smacked, pleased naturally but can't understand it. Maybe the letrozole is working now, but why the ascites.
Now on a high part of the roller coaster and wondering if I will have to have chemo Wednesday.
Can anyone shed any light on this for me. It is such a strange one this. As is this bloody awful disease.
Love to you all
