Sorry I’m just now getting around to the update, but it’s been a busy several days. I had my scans on Monday night and met with my doctor Tuesday afternoon. Scans look good; there is more shrinkage. This is a huge blessing. But even more of a blessing was what my doctor told me this time. I expressed concern about the extreme amount of fatigue I have been having, about how it’s difficult to do anything. Even walking from one place to the other in the hospital I had to take 3 breaks where I sat down and caught my breath. And the airport? I had to use wheelchairs this time. I can’t take Little Man anywhere by myself because I get tired out too quickly. So, my doctor heard and understood. First, he told me to take another week off before starting chemo again. That means today is completely free and my body gets more chance to recover before starting again. (This also, hopefully, means that I will have some energy on Halloween!) My doctor then told me that we were going to reduce the dosage of one of the drugs by 25%. This is huge; my local doctor was very relieved to hear it. Next, he told me that if I still have the extreme fatigue I have been having with this next cycle, then for my following cycle I can not do the Taxotere at all (just have a Gemzar cycle). Again, this is huge. Finally, he told me there is chance that I can take the month of December off from chemo! I’m really praying for that one to come true. Nothing would make my Christmas like not having to be on chemo. So it was good news all around!
