Today, Tuesday is two weeks from when I had the procedure done to remove the fluid from around my lungs and about a week and a half from the day I said in an earlier post was the day that we would have all the results in. Finally today we got the HER2 test back. It is negative, that's a good thing. So official diagnosis...breast cancer, estrogen positive, progesterone positive and HER2 negative. Still don't know what Stage.
So the doctor is going to do ahead with his plan. I will have two pills to take instead of having the awful chemo that wipes me out. I picked up one of the prescriptions at the pharmacy today and the other one I wait for it to come in the mail. That, I think is a bit weird.
I have to wait til I get the other pill before taking any. I will have to go in to do labs once a month. To check the levels and the cancer marker thing. First labs said it was 415 which is waaaaaay high. Last week's labs showed in was up in the 600s. Not sure what to think about that.
So I will have an estrogen blocker pill and the other one will shrink down the tumors I guess. We better get busy with this. Dr said that this way I will not have all the awful side effects like with the regular chemo drugs. Maybe none at all. I do have questions to ask him about that and a few other things. I hope he calls me tomorrow.
My biggest problem is ...well besides coughing alot, is that I am sooooo tired all the time. I hope to get some good sleep tonight. Didn't happen last night because my husband had problems. And tonight I have to stay up a bit longer to get his blood sugar down because it is too high. I hope that won't take too long. I NEED SLEEEEEEEP :)
I hope all of you have a great first day of March. Take care. God bless.
