So, this is the good news. The bad news is most recent CT scan showed a new lung nodule in RML. Probably will need another VATS on that pesky lung nodule. Also, onc wants to do at least 4 more cycles of FOLFIRI. Not thrilled about that. FOLFIRI has been hard on me, especially during the last 2 cycles.
I had vomiting and bad stomach cramps. I've had to visit the ER multiple times with partial bowel obstruction symptoms. Plus, I have lost quite a bit of hair. Thank goodness, my husband still loves me because I don't look so pretty anymore.
On another note, I hope everyone had a wonderful summer despite everything. In closing, I just want to remind everyone to enjoy every day and try not to worry too much. I know it is easier said than done. Worry is the thief of time and none of us know how much time we have left as part of the cancer club. So, get out and enjoy the most of everyday, if you can! Have fun. Take the trip. Call a friend. Tell your loved ones how important they are to you.
Keep fighting! Researchers are learning more about cancer everyday. I hope all of us can get to and stay NED.
Take care everyone. I am praying and hoping for the best for ALL of us!
