On Beyond Cancer

My life with metastatic breast cancer

Tumor marker tiny bit higher April 29, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — onbeyondcancer @ 12:00 pm

So my tumor marker is in and a tiny bit higher than last time, up to 99.0 (difference of 1.3).  Probably not significant really and it’s been a crazy few weeks with an extra week chemo break and lower dose.  I’ll be watching it carefully over the next few months.

Had to take my Percocet a few times this weekend, though I did do a bit of walking in NYC.  I’m feeling better than I expected.

After reading the warning label on that drug I chickened out.  Maybe on a weekend if I really need it.  I figured out last night that the Ativan or withdrawl from it might cause nightmares, so last night I tried a half dose and that seemed better.  I’ll probably stick with that for about a week and then try to go without it and see how I do.

MRI on Thursday morning, then this weekend I’m going to Florida to spend some quality time with my sister. 🙂 🙂
