A Traveling WeekThis Wednesday I head to the NIH/NCI for PET/CT/MRI scans on Thursday. Dr. Avital, head of the research program I am in, won't be there this time, but Dr. Kammula, who lead my surgery back on 9/23, will be. I'm sure they will consult once Dr. Avital gets back on April 12th, so I have no worries.
I have had off and on achy-pain in my torso, primarily along where they cut me open and mostly lower down near the navel area where one constantly bends. My CA19-9 is up some to 945, but nothing to be alarmed about. There's a lot going on in my liver and maybe the chemo is slowing down doing it's job. I seem to go in 6 month spurts where a regimen works. Bring on the TACE!
Petunia demonstrates beautifully how I have felt most of the past 15 days or so.
