Thank you Gayle.

Actually, I ended up not having my chemo today. My oncologist is changing my treatment. My tumor marker keeps going up, which means my current chemo isn't working as it should. So he is taking me off the IV chemo, and giving me oral drugs instead, Aromasin and Afinitor.

It will be nice to be off the IV chemo, ( I will still be getting my Zometa, a bone drug, which is through an IV, once per month though), but the Afinitor has some side effects also, the biggest of which is mouth sores.

I won't be starting for at least another 2 weeks yet, there's a process the office has to go through to get the insurance to authorize it.
