Started Cycle 3 today, the nausea is much worse this time, I think I might have fallen asleep for 1/2 hr watching TV, otherwise I have been hugging the great white telephone.
But it's worth it. The official word from my oncologist is that my main tumor is now 25% its original size and is DEAD; effectively we are just waiting for the remaining tissue to be broken down.
I still have an active spot in my left buttock which will be biopsied in the near future to determine what action, if any, we need to take. But from where we were to were we are, I couldn't be happier.
I will have another PET scan after cycle 4 (8 weeks from now) and if the cancer is completely gone, then I will have an additional 2 cycles and then radiation, if not, an additional 4 cycles will be required before the radiation. I would be happy with 6!
I am going to take a risk and try eating something to see if it settles my stomach so i'll sign off; robust though my Mac is, I am not sure the keyboard is vomit resistant.
