Things have been hectic and will be so for at least the rest of April. I’ve had Dr appts…mixed news. The Oncologist is going to start me on Zometa towards the end of the month. That’s supposed to promote bone strength and growth…and have a cancer blocking property. Not killing…but maybe blocking it from further damage while the chemo does it’s thing. Appt yesterday was with Ortho Surgeon. The x-rays show some new bone growth on the pelvic bone, but the tumor has spread towards the hip socket which is why it’s so painful to walk.
The ball is back in the Oncologist’s court. We’ll do the next treatment then a CT scan the first week in May. If there is no noticable improvement, then we’re going to be looking at referrals to Dallas area specialists.
This came from the Dr. visits this week. At least there will be some relief from having to hike through the parking lots at the hospital and stores. That will be a great help. Walking for long periods is totally out now.
I feel great. That’s the blessing in all this! It no longer hurts to sit. That’s a blessing. We’re trying more aggressive treatments. That’s a blessing. Just keep us in prayer. It’s working!
