New Deal

A few zillion phone calls later, I have a new program.

It's back to carboplatine-taxol, but this time once a week. More effective, I'm told. Three months of chemo and then another scan.

It ought to be interesting. They can give me an injection to keep my neutrophiles (some kind of white cell) up, but what to do about my platelets seems a bit up in the air. Evidently, my continuing loss is not the norm.

So: First appointment Friday, 21 August, unless the new specialist gets it moved forward.

I've found my old specialist. She's in Lyon, not far from my new one, he tells me.

Time to start hat shopping, again.

  1. Definitely a better plan than what you were doing. What up with the platelets? Any WAGs? I hope they can move up the first appointment, get the show on the road (sts). Get ready for side effects:( Look for some relief - if you know what I mean. Glad to hear things are getting accomplished.
