On Monday I went to the cardiologist because of my edema. The doc said that my CT scan showed that there was some fluid in my lungs; not a large amount, but it's going to be monitored. He said that
down the road he may have me go for a test to check out the pericardium. For the edema, he put me on Bumex and Zaroxolyn. I go back in 6 weeks to see how things are going. I hope the meds get rid of all this fluid.
Today I went to the oncologist just for a check on my CBC, which was good. I asked if I could go back to weekly treatment, because thee q 3 week treatment really knocked the stuffing out of me. We wound up going with a treatment schedule of two weeks on then two weeks off. I start back on chemo on April 14. April 14 was the date the Titanic struck an iceberg. Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14. It's the day before federal income tax day in the US. HIPAA went into effect on April 14. Oh, and I turn 52 on April 14. Not exactly a great day in history. j/k
So, that's the scoop for this week!
