Third Protocol and CT-Scan results

My third protocol and CT- Scan Result. This was done at the hospital twenty four hours for five days. The chemo drugs that I was on were Ifosfamide, cisplatin and mesna. By the second day I am ready to get out of there. I can’t sleep, can’t rest, feeling so nauseated and ready to barf. My husband is there with me everyday trying to make me feel better and consoling me to hang in there and that I am going to get better. My friend Margo she’s there every single day at the hospital and staying for hours. We talk everything that we can think of including politics during the election. We had a good laugh. She’s an amazing person, very supported including her husband Paul and her two daughters.

The CT-Scan was not good at all. The 18 tumors in my lungs got bigger; the good news is that there were no new ones. So my doctor recommended that I should try this drugs for lung cancer ( I forgot the name of it.) and the downside is that it’s not even approve with the kind of cancer I have, not to mention it’s very expensive. I suggested to my doctor what about going back to my original chemo drugs which is gemzar and taxotere; he said that’s a good option too. Then I went to see my second opinion doctor he’s amazing. I asked him about going back to my original chemo drugs? He agrees with me because we have seen a significant shrinkage in my lung tumors which my first doctor thought was a scarring tissue because the biopsy result was negative. I felt that he drop the ball when it comes to my treatment.
