Had quite a bad week one way or another. landed at out of hour surgery with a dreadfully ulcerated tongue and inner mouth, couldnt eat, last Sunday evening. was given 3 different mouth washes and thankgoodness has improoved loads. Wednesday went to see my OC on how things were going, she couldn,t tell me my results as the CA125 hadn,t been printed on my blood packet and the wrong count wasn,t given. The doctor was very concerned about my blood and ordered an urgent blood transfusion. On Thursday i was called in early 10am instead of my appointment of 1.30pm as i needed a cross match for transfusion and also to see if my Chemo could be administered that afternoon, fortunately i was able to have my 5th Chemo of Carboplatin by HB had gone up from 95 to 125 apparently if it drops below 100 it can,t be given. On the Friday i went for my blood transfusion 3 pints, after six attempts of cannula inserts i got going 9am till 3pm, i had forgotten what it felt like to be soo warm and rossie cheeks, i hopped out the hospital. The nurse wondered how i had got myself into the hospital i felt so ill. I have just been in touch with the hospital and my blood CA125 has now gone down yet again - started at 1148, then 199, then 16, its now 7 and this reading was taken on Wednesday the day before my 5th Chemo so im hoping to take 2 more readings from this with 2 more chemos off and who knows. love Margaret x
