I've been meaning to post for a week about the latest news on life in Cancer Land.
The skin metastasis on my scalp grew and became very ugly during my first round of Ibrance. I haven't seen Dr G since before Passover but did go to my dermatologist. He biopsied a sample, cleaned up the yucky area, gave me antibiotic goop and sterile bandages. The site remains clean and much less grotesque although still seems to me about 50% larger.
At the same time a fistula developed near my port access area. This slow growing opening has been around for some time but is now an open wound. The interventional radiology PA recommended removing my port. That's scheduled for Friday.
Last, the ONJ area in my mouth began to hurt again. If other parts of my body show signs of infection, it's no surprise that my mouth would act up. The dentist prescribed ten days of antibiotics.
That's more than enough for one post. Additional stuff coming soon.
