Chemo 19 (Round 8)

Just had my chemo done here in Johannesburg, South Africa yesterday and am heading back to Bulawayo, Zimbabwe today Friday November 1st.

The treatment went fine but once again, the protein in my urine was very elevated. I am at a total loss to understand why the figure is so high as I have been off the Avastin since July 19th! I did get the Alimta and my blood work was fine and my weight stable.

My Zim plans have changed because of these medical developments. I will need to have a needle biopsy fairly soon and then get a full gene sequence done with the tumor sample obtained. From there they will be able to determine the next round of drugs that will be ideal for me.

I will follow up this post with a few more details about why I need to put my Africa plans on hold but for now, enjoy this sunset.

Carpe Diem.
