CT scan results after 6 rounds of chemo

The day before receiving my CT scan results, I posted this caption on Instagram:
“I’M JEALOUS – jealous of those whose bodies function. Who can dance the night away without feeling out of breath. Who don’t have to worry if this piece of pie will worsen their situation. Who can plan their weeks ahead of time knowing they don’t have upcoming treatments that will knock them out. I’M JEALOUS. Because there’s so much I want to do right now but my body is telling me to relax. I will listen to it. Because like I preach every day… (which my girl had to remind me) BE PATIENT. BE KIND TO YOURSELF!
As I approach the last kilometre in my 5K race… it hurts, it’s exhausting but I will reach my finish line. *Confessions of a worn out body and an anxious mind, awaiting tomorrow’s results which will confirm the next step in my journey* Fingers crossed… no more chemo. Please pretty please. No more chemo.”
In my vlog above, you can truly tell how anxious I was.
And then the day came. The day I have been waiting for, for a long time! May 25th. The day we analyze my CT scan to determine the next step to my journey. More chemo? Or no more chemo?
The moment my Oncologist walked into the room, he said my scan looked AMAZING! A big word for someone who usually remains neutral. “I’m STOPPING chemo.”, he said! “Let’s move on to hormone therapy!”
I WANTED TO CRY!!! The thought of doing another round of chemo hurt my heart! My body is exhausted. He had mentioned 6 rounds and I was praying that was truly it. And he was right, after 6 months of intense chemotherapy, the lungs nodules have significantly decreased. My scan results are quite “impressive” he also used!
I am so so soooo happy! (As you can also see in the end of my video) 😛
Now it’s time for Zoladex, Letrozole and Palbociclib. What are all these and what are their side effects?
New blog posts coming soon!
