We are due for the scan next Tues and its the first appointment that we can get. We have chemo on the same day so it will be a tough day - especially as chemo is at 8:30am and the CT at 3:30pm - going to try to get her in early by just showing up. Its in the same building so we have nothing to lose.
Fiona is feeling sick and she is quite weak. She doesnt feel that the doctors hold out a lot of hope and she thinks the Doctors dont think the chemo is working. I didnt hear that and I think they have a bias toward not using it because they have no direct evidence that Gemzar is effective for this cancer. I think the negativity stems from the hospital funding the drug as the government doesnt fund it for this type of cancer in Australia. Not sure what this stuff costs but I expect its very costly.
I'm hoping Fiona's distention is loculated fluid that they couldnt see in the ultrasound. Fiona is not keen on he CT as she is worried what else it will show.
Fiona needs me to be strong so I need to keep emotions in check, she needs the rock to lean on. We live in a rural area and commute for treatment so there are not many people to vent with but this forum is great help and its good to be able to talk to people who just understand.
Many thanks to you all
