The eribulin is clearly working. My CA 27.229 tumor marker fell by more than 100 points! This is exactly the kind of reaction Dr G and I hoped to see.
The next step will be to reduce the eribulin dose once more (to the lowest of the three options), because the neuropathy in my feet has increased dramatically. In the morning I now feel numb all along the toes, the balls of the feet, and the outside edges of each foot. (Previously I didn't have any symptoms in the morning.) By 4 PM I have that pins-and-needles feeling, which soon progresses to full numbness and more pain by evening. Hence Dr G wants to try reducing the dosage to see if the eribulin will still be as effective but less toxic. I agreed to try for one more cycle.
Also, today is my 53rd birthday. Rik bought me red roses, Bob snuggled with me, and I managed to do a little shopping. But what did I really do today? Go to the doctor and get good news!
I'm already looking forward to turning 54.....
