Well, we hit a bump in the road yesterday. I came to the clinic for some testing to see how well my chemo is working and the CT scan showed I have a pulmonary embolism (blood clot in my right lung). So I was immediately admitted. It stinks because I feel great right now and yet here I am sitting in a hospital bed.
I am thankful that they found the PE, since they can actually be fatal if not treated. But it stinks that I got it. Dr H says that it isn't an uncommon thing to have happen for chemo patients and that I will need to be on blood thinners for quite a long time to prevent more. We're waiting for some insurance approval right now. If our insurance approves a home injection, I can go home soon. If they don't I will be here for at least 3-5 days on an oral med instead.
As far as results from the tests about how well my chemo is working...we're still waiting on those. I do know thee CT showed no cancer BUT I don't think the cancer showed up in my CT before either. I need to get some clarity on that before I start jumping for joy. Hopefully today will be a multiple post day and I'll have some good news to share later!
