My oncologist called me Thurs. night with the results of Mon. morning’s CT scan. In short, the chemo protocol I’ve been on — Carboplatin, Taxol, and Herceptin — hasn’t worked to shrink any tumors. In fact, 2 of them have grown.
I started a new chemo protocol yesterday — Navelbine and Herceptin. Dr. Funky Glasses said it has a 70% success rate and that she likes those odds. She also said the side effects are minimal. Of course, I’d prefer 85-100%, but I just have to have faith that this is going to put me into remission.
I won’t lie though; this has been very difficult for me. I’m afraid yet hopeful at the same time.
And I’m praying the only prayer I seem to be able to make these days: Dear God, please help me; please heal me.
