Ninth Treatment!

Alright so today was my ninth treatment, so far I feel good. I hope the Emend keeps doing its thing and prevents me from getting sick. I am a little worried it wont because the last treatment i was feeling sick and the chemo is cumulative so it will be stronger this time. I hope I will make it through this treatment. Thank you all for checking it, will post afain later
Thank you

Eighth Treatment

Alright so I just got home from my eighth treatment of ABVD chemotherapy. I got my prescription for the wonder pill Emend, to eliminate my nausea. And for my Neuprogene injections to increase my white and red blood cell count, even thought they are improving and are almost normal now, instead of too low. Today after my treatment, i feel tired like normal. The next few days will be good. Thank you all for checking in and Happy New Year.

I am doing great, thank you all for checking in and Merry Christmas, have a Happy Holiday season everyone!=]

Good News

Ok so today I meet with my doctor for the results of my pet scan. The original size of the tumor in my chest was 9.8cm, and is now 7.4cm. This may not seem like much but you have to think about it three dimensionally. The tumor is about half the size it was originally. All other small masses and enlarged areas, are no more, GONE. The tumor is the only thing left to beat and with the chemo that will happen with the next six treatments. It was good news today and I am grateful. Thank you all for checking in and for your support!!

New Scan

posted Nov 12, 2009, 10:47 PM by Unknown user

Ok so this friday, tomorrow, I am going into the doctor to get a pt scan on my tumor in my chest to see if it has diminished in size from my chemo treatments. I am confident that the size has gone down as the pain it was causing my shoulder weeks ago is no longer present. My appointment is at 430 and I can not eat past 930 in the morning, Im not very excited about this not eating for several long hours since I am still holding down full meals thanks to my medication. I will post tomorrow with the results of my scan, thank you all for checking in!

So I just  got home from my Fourth chemo treatment. I have my new medicine to fight the nausea, it worked wonders last time and I hope to get the same results this time. I have gained nine pounds since my last  chemo 2 weeks ago, a good sign i think. I can only hope this week  is a good one and the spree of good luck continues for me. Thank you all for checking in, I will try to post again soon.
