Treatment Progress

January 20th, 2009

Hey Everyone,

I am two weeks into my biotherapy/immunotherapy/chemo treatments and things are going as well as can be expected.  The nurses at the chemo center couldn’t be any nicer.  I have treatments five days a week, Monday – Friday for a few hours each day.  Each day I have blood draw and tested to make sure my levels are healthy for treatment.   My white blood cell counts have been low which has adjusted my dosages, but for the most part, I’m on track.   I’ve dealt with some side effects such as fever, aches and chills. However, the constant side effect is fatigue and just generally being tired all day.

I can’t wait to be done with this portion of the therapy and move on to self injections for the remainder of the year-long program.  I am missing Colorado desperately.  I can’t wait to get back to my life and a sense of normalcy.  Take care everybody!

-Andy
