I spoke with my oncologist last night around supper. My bone scan showed progression within my bones with new Mets in my skull and to my face, my sternum, two ribs, numerous spots on my spine. Left hip and left femur. Apparently my ct scans did not pick up any of these which my oncologist thought they should have.
There are no other oral meds that are either available or allowed in Canada. Dr Ravi will do some research before our face to face appointment on Monday. All clinical trials have been closed due to Covid-19.
So, it’s chemo for me. My pain has been awful so I figured something was going on. Just didn’t expect that. I am worried about all the side effects from chemo as I tend to get every side effect going. I have calmed down some. It was so difficult to tell my husband, daughter and son this. I called my mother but my daughter texted my sister, niece and nephew.
I just wanted to share with the people that will understand how I’m feeling. My oncologist told me that my neutrophils have to be much higher than 1 to start chemo.
