Topic: next CT scan on Wed.
It's been a while since I posted about my journey. I have a CT scan on Wed. to see how the Xeloda is working on the tumor. I think I'm more scanxious about this one, because Xeloda is not approved for CC treatments and nobody really knows how well it will work.
I just need it to have worked a little bit to shrink the rumor enough that I can schedule the resection AGAIN! And this time I BETTER not get sick! And I'm calling my surgeon tomorrow to let him know I'm having the scan, in case Dr. Kemeny forgets to pass along the information! They supposedly meet on Thursdays, so I'm looking forward to them talking and getting back to me with the decision they make. (I bet I hear from Dr. Fong first!!!)
My troll has been busy showing up in my dreams and munching, so I'm taking that as a good sign.
The middle of June will be the earliest I can schedule for, since chemo has to be done 3 weeks prior to the resection. And that puts me at my birthday. Now, do I push it off until after my birthday or do I spend my birthday either on the table or in the hospital room?? I know it's a silly thing to think of, but... what I really want is to have a chocolate martini for my birthday!!! Maybe I can have just one.....
