Yesterday I had my cancer specialist appointment. It was scheduled because I had completed 2 cycles (5 weeks each) of my Velcade chemo treatment. My chemo levels have lowered due to my treatment, but I will need to have radiation on the T7 vertebrae of my thoracic spine as there are multiple myeloma cells there that are causing havoc. These MM cells were responsible for the severe back/side pain I had over 4 weeks in February and March that kept me mostly bed-ridden.
Overall I’m staying positive, using my photography to help keep my mind off my cancer, and focused on remaining happy.
