I saw Dr G today and the result of last week's MRI is no new brain mets. Yay! Now we move on to a PET/CT scan (haven't had one in a long time) and after we get those results, we will be ready to make a decision about changing treatment.
My cancer is slowly progressing, which means changing treatment. I may stay on Xeloda and add something I've already taken, such as Afinitor, or something new. I've already refused to take Abraxane or any other taxanes again because I fear the neuropathy in my feet will increase dramatically, as it did the one time I tried Taxol.
Dr G and I read about curcumin (the active ingredient in the Indian spice turmeric) being effective in cancer treatment. So I need to choose a new naturopath and get started with this.
In the meanwhile, I will get ready for the second cataract surgery, enjoy mid-winter break with Rik off of school, and schedule all these appointments.
