As Expected

As predicted the latest scan results were not great. They indicate that the current chemo is no longer effective, so, time to move on to the next one. Rebecca had her oncology appointment at 10:15 and chemo scheduled for 11:00. It was decided to change chemo so instead of getting Gemzar today Rebecca got Navelbine. She will maintain her 2 weeks on and one week off schedule on the new drug.

We'll let you know how she tolerates the new drug.

Hi, guys. Even if the news was expected, I'm sure it wasn't easy to hear. Plus changing chemos can be scary. I hope the 'navybean' isn't too bad. I've heard it is pretty ok other than causing constipation.
Much love to you guys.

Rebecca, I'll call again tomorrow.
