It was a late call this time, but my radiation was right on time. It was radiation #5. At 17:00 we drive home with a satisfied mind. Now let it do its work. According to my experiences with It will take about 6 to 8 weeks till I will experience the effect. Being an optimist I count with the possibility that our trip to Brittany might just be possible. And if not, there will be nothing to complain about. I live in a nice and comfortable house. So holiday in my own house is not exactly a punishment.
On Friday May 11th an echo will be made of my liver. I hope we can establish that the chemo’s (cyclofosfamide) have had a good effect. Exciting again!
On may 15th I have a consult with my hematologist, where the results will be discussed. We will also talk about the medication that will be administered.
Today I read that Carfilzomib (an improved version of Velcade/Bortezomib with less neuropathy) will be trademarked by the FDA by the brand name “Kyprolis”. If that has any influence on the the possibility of its use for me, I wonder. I hope this will be soon available. It’s always nice to have choices from different options.
