New Chemo

Hey, just a quick note. I don't have details yet, but I'm going to be starting a new chemotherapy regimen soon. Within the week it will happen. The main drug is going to be oxalliplatin, and I'm not sure if it will be combined with anything else or not.

I decided that I just didn't feel comfortable leaving my body exposed to the cancer for the few weeks that it will take TGen to get everything done on their end. Then, on top of that, there is the uncertainty that insurance will be able to pay for what TGen recommends. I'm still having the profiling done, and I'll get it all ready to go if Oxalliplatin doesn't work.

I'm hoping that Oxalliplatin will shrink my tumors and bring my markers back down. This cancer moves so fast. You can't give it too much time to do it's thing. Anyways, that's where we're at. I'll let you know the specifics when I have them. Thanks

Stay strong. I pray that this round will shrink the cancer down and the TGen comes back quickly. Keep the faith. Aunt Terry :o)
