And the word is……….

from my oncologist following my latest scans; “Scans overall stable. No significant change”. While I am truly thrilled with this I just wish this shit would go away! However, the alternative to all of this is worse.

There is also an ongoing issue with the elevated protein levels in my urine. This is as a result of the side effects of Avastin. My last dose of Avastin was July 19th. My past 2 chemo sessions I have only received the Alimta and will also skip the Avastin at my next chemo session on September 18th. While this is not ideal, it is the only way for the protein levels to return to normal. The other downside to continued  elevated levels of protein in my urine is kidney damage. Not great!

Now, which way is New York City?

Carpe Diem.
