Here I am, last cycle, cycle 12. I met with my oncologist in Illinois last Tuesday before we left for Oregon to have my every three month check up. I asked if I could start the ATRA after we got to Oregon, meaning today, instead of last week. Didn’t really want to get the whole ATRA headache while we were road tripping. Dr. Graham was cool with that. So this morning I took my first dose. I can’t believe this is my last round of it. Today I meet with an Oregon oncologist who will be supervising my care while I’m here. Not the same doc I had before as our insurance is changed, but we have the appointment all set up with this new guy and they are planning on giving me my shot afterward. We’ll see what the dealio will be here, probably the same as what I’ve had in Illinois.
Cycle 12, last round of ATRA… amazing.
