Cancer Warrior - Sorry Gang

If anyone has been following my blog this past week, you would have seen that I hadn’t been posting. Mostly because my main computer is in the shop and its that computer that the internet cable was connected to. I suppose I could have posted via my laptop, but then I’d have to go to my brother’s house and glommed onto their WiFi. I figured a week off isn’t gonna kill me.

Anyway … on to this post. Trying to do it from my work computer. Should work … maybe.

Had my second treatment of Navelbine/Herceptin yesterday. Odd though with the oncology nurse that I had. Don’t recall seeing Elaine there before, so she was probably a floater. Normally before starting the current treatment, you’re asked a million and one questions. From your head to your toes. Elaine just asked me … “So, any aches, pains or complaints?” I just told her “nope” and she continued from there … showing me my current bloodwork and the fact that everything is within the perimeters, so we’re good to go. Now, having gone to this clinic for the past 14 years and being asked the dozens of questions each and every time … I found this curious. Not that I minded not telling her about the fact that nothing had really changed as far as the headaches, neuropathy, etc. goes. But I was under the impression that the questions were a requirement.

Hmm. Perhaps I’ll ask one of the regular oncology nurses about this next week when I go in for my next treatment. I’m curious now.

As far as the Navelbine/Herceptin goes … nothing unusual. The only reaction I’ve gotten so far was a day of diarrhea. Charming, but not the most horrid reaction I could have gotten … and something easily fixed with some Imodion. No fatigue that I’ve noticed (which is good). No other aches or pains. Again good.

Next week I see Dr. D and I think we’ll be getting another round of tumor markers. Fingers are crossed.

And remember to repeat after me. I AM A CANCER WARRIOR.

    Yes, you are a cancer warrior! I’m glad that the side effects seem minimal and let’s hope that this combo gets your numbers down. : )

    Liz, I’m glad the side effects aren’t bad. Everything crossed that this works, and quickly!

    Me too, Dee.

    Thanx, Edie. So far there’s no sign of any hair falling out. With luck, that won’t be a problem.

  5. Margie Says:

    I’m glad it was just your internet that was down and not you.

  6. Liz Says:

    Heh, heh, heh. Good one, Margie. I should have made more of an effort to post from my work computer, but I expected to have my home one back before now. Evidently the problem is greater than I knew/feared.

    Fingers and toes and every little hair on my head is crossed for you, hon. *hugs*

    Thanx, Marcia. I think I’d pay good money to see every little hair on your head crossed. :lol:
