I really want to scream!
My 12th chemo infusion was supposed to be the last, to be immediately followed by a few weeks of radiation to eliminate what was left of the 3 tumors in my liver. And then I would be monitored.
That was until my oncologist announced that he wanted the radiation to be followed by another 6 months of the same chemo. To maximize the chances of eliminating those damn tumors. He calls this the “whack ’em all” approach.
So, while there is still hope that I be put into long term remission, I am really discouraged at the thought of 12 more chemo sessions.
I was so looking forward to get a break from chemo.
On a more positive note, my mother is doing better.
