Dr. Litor is back. Hooray!
She agreed with my GP. I had an intestinal problem last week. Not a blockage, but not enough throughput. Or something like that.
And she told me to forget the tons of paracetamol and just take the pred for the joint pains. (Meanwhile, I had the prescription refilled and I have a lifetime supply of paracetamol. I guess the city pharmacist didn't read the "5 days" part.)
And I don't have to peel my fruit. I can eat it the way I always eat it.
And I can do anything I feel like, including jogging. I know I can no longer get around my 1.7 km "track" (just over a mile) but walk and run will do it. I have to do something before I fall apart.
And I can go to Spain as long as I have a doctor available. I figure John's, my brother-in-law's, oncologist will take me in, if necessary.
And -- ready? -- My CA-125 is down to 230!!
I'm eating today, again, too.
Two more chemo sessions, a scan, surgery a month after the last chemo, if ready, then more chemo. I have a terrible feeling this could interfere with my skiing this year.
