I received my Herceptin today and then saw Dr. McKeen after my infusion. Unfortunetly, my tumor markers have sky rocketed. I went from 450 to 2800. I have been in a lot of pain lately because of the fluid on my abdomen and have put on about 9lbs. in fluid since last Tuesday. So, tomorrow I am going to Good Samaratin Hospital to have the fluid drained and to start back on chemotherapy. I will have three weeks on and one week off. I was not completely surprised. I was never convinced that the fluid was coming from my liver. I know my body and this is just how I felt before. So, I knew it was the cancer on my omentum. However, I am still dissappointed. I was just getting a taste of feeling better and being independant and here we go again. I was hoping that my journey had come to an end, but I guess God is not done with me yet. It will be a different drug this time. I will not be able to get the last one again due to my allergic reaction to it.
I told Maddie tonight and she burst into tears. Once again, she is the hardest part to all of this.
I will keep you posted as to how everything goes tomorrow.
