A better end to 2011 than 2010
I went to see my oncologist today. Some more positive signs that the Femara may be working to stabilise everything! My tumour markers were down again (third time in a row); the CT scan showed that my organs are all clear and my bone scan showed that the cancer has spread - but only marginally. Some areas, principally those that have had radiation treatment, have improved. I skipped out of that appointment, smiling like a lunatic!
I don't have to go back to see the oncologist for a whole 3 months (I had been going every 6 weeks). She has also decided to put me on Bondronat instead of Zometa. I can take the Bondronat orally (as a daily tablet) instead of having it by IV every 4 weeks. I won't miss that canula I can tell you.
I will still have to go in to have my Zoladex injection. The Dr suggested I might want to consider having my ovaries out which would then mean no more Zoladex either. I'll have to think about it over the next 3 months and let her know when I see her next.
So, has anyone else taken Bondronat by tablet? And, has anyone else opted to have ovaries out as part of their treatment plan?
