So I started my second cycle of Abraxane yesterday. My CA came down a 1000 points...that's right a thousand points!!!!! My doc says my lungs still sound junky...meaning I might need one more thoracentesis before the Abraxane takes over and dries up the fluid in my plural cavity.
I am breathing so much better. The thoracentesis they did last week took 1.5 liters of fluid out of my left lung. I still need oxygen sometimes, but not all the time. I'll take any improvement I can get where breathing is concerned.
So for now...my lungs are able to inflate almost like a normal person's lungs. My CA-125 is coming down. My hair started to come out in clumps so I am sporting my naked noggin. I have a halo of baby soft skin and stubble on top. Things are good!
To the Moon and Back,
