Since starting chemo all I want to do now is sleep. I’m so exhausted.
I have had three PET scans and the results have been good: no activity. A few weeks ago I went for my fourth PET scan and last Friday, Oct. 28, I received the results of the last PET scan: new activity. New activity to my T2, my left 5th and 6th ribs, my left clavicle and the lesion I have on a rib has gotten bigger.
Just when I thought I was doing so well, I’m hit with this news. Cancer sucks.
Yesterday, I met with the radiology oncologist. I will have about 12 sessions to my T2, clavicle and lesion. I was marked up yesterday.
The cancer on my T2 is causing me some nerve pain to the right shoulder and underarm. I haven’t been able to sleep because of the pain. At least now I know what’s causing it. None of my pain medications are helping with the nerve pain.
Tomorrow I start radiation. Hopefully, my oral chemo meds come soon. I have to start that on Monday.
