John contacted me yesterday after receiving an e-mail from a member wondering how I was doing.
Well all, I was put back on chemo Dec. 2 as the tumor on my adreanal gland has grown. I go once a week for treatment and then 3 weeks off, for about 5 - 6 times. I went for a bone scan last Friday and an MRI of my head is scheduled for tomorrow morning. I also have an ultrasound on Feb 6 to see if this round of chemo is working. I will see the specialists in London the first part of Feb.
To top things off I have terrible sciatic pain running down the back of my right leg which makes it hard to bend over or sit down. The only relief is to stand. My family Dr. gave me heavy duty pain killers, but it only dulls the pain.
After I get the results from all the tests I will post the results.
Thanks for all your continued concern about me and I'm sorry for being so tardy in keeping you all informed.
Keep up the great work everyone, don't end up like me.
