Default Update on my bone scan report

I know some of you were wondering about the latest bone scan I had recently. Even though it shows the cancer is stable for now, (which means it's still there, it just not spreading for now), my oncologist wants me to stay on the chemo, because it's the chemo that has kept it stable and he wants to keep it from spreading beyond the bone. (For those that don't know, I have stage IV breast cancer that has spread to my bones.)

I was hoping to get a break from the chemo, but I should have known from past experience that it probably wouldn't happen. But I guess if I have to stay on chemo, it's better to stay on one where I know what to expect from the side effects and know how to plan my activities around my treatments, and at least I haven't lost my hair with this one.

The chemo I am on is called Gemzar, I get it two Tuesdays in row, then a Tuesday off. I am also on a bone drug called Aredia, which is given through an infusion once per month.

So, even though nothing has changed as far as my treatment goes, stable for now is still good news.
