Saw oncologist today, and he is taking me off the Tykerb which was really messing ( and I mean messing) with my tummy. Latest MRI and Pet/CT showed improvement overall. Although not taking me off chemo, but just switching to Xeloda (another pill) and keeping up my Herception infusions every three weeks. The new protocol will be taking 2 (500 mg) twice a day with meals for 7 days, and then 7 days off. See him in three weeks. But I gained 5 pounds being off the Tykerb while visiting my friend in Santa Fe for the weekend. Woo-hoo!
