Chemo 12 Day 1

Short and sweet.Full chemo plus an Aranesp shot, all ran okay. Marker numbers good: CA 27.9 down to 439.4 from 653 or so; and CA15.3 was at 413, slightly up from 384. The onc was also pleased with the hemoglobin at 11.4. We took another Aranesp shot, and expect great improvement. On the 26 May, I’ll be getting my semi-annual pet scan and I have hopes it will turn out as well as last time. All the rest of the numbers are where the onc expects them to be for the nature of my illness. Have been taking cranberry pills,multivitamins. B-complex w. C, and allergy pills.

We may get set up in the next couple weeks with some physical therapy. The doc thinks it will help my back. I’ll post if it starts, which exercises we do, etc.
