Topic: Update after silence (sorry)
Well, I haven't been around on the forum lately, things are moving along. I feel useless and want to go back to work, but I just don't have the stamina. I have had three rounds of chemo and by the third day, I am in bed feeling like crap. My counts have bounced around some especially my potassium level. It was good today in the normal range, but my wbc count was very low putting my ANC at 1100, which is almost neutropenic. I'm supposed to have chemo on Friday, but if counts go down any further it will be held. Some coworkers and friends are hosting a fund raiser for me on Saturday night where there will be a silent auction, 50/50 raffle music, dancing and of course karaoke as I am big into that. I hope I'm going to be able to go. I had an MRI yesterday to see what the radiation did to the tumor. It showed no new growth, but the tumor has not changed. It has only been 5 weeks since the SBRT, but was hoping really bad that the tumor had shrunk enough to operate. Well, no such luck. So it will be rechecked in two months. We were all some deflated and upset by the news. CANCER SUCKS BIG TIME. I hate it!
