Visit with My Oncologist

I just met with my oncologist today. This was a regularly scheduled follow-up to my first two PRRT treatments. I’ll come back and see him again when all four treatments are complete, probably in late February. He is pleased with how things are progressing, and confident that I’ll see substantial benefit from this therapy, particularly after all four doses are administered.

It’s been two weeks since my trip to Houston, and I’m still feeling wrung out, sick to my stomach, and having to make way too many trips to the bathroom. If this is anything like the first round I should start feeling quite a bit better in another week or so. I was hoping that this time would be easier on me, but no such luck. My doctor today said that I can take more “rescue injections” of octreotide at home to help ease some of the symptoms.

I’m back at the office on a regular basis, working as many hours as I can tolerate. At home Kathy is a saint – putting up with my issues while dealing with her own (including a sprained ankle right now). I’m looking forward to feeling significantly better by Thanksgiving so I can enjoy our big family celebration.

I’ll post again soon. Thanks for stopping by.
