While I was in Dr. Wong’s clinic this morning, she declared she was not going to give me any jab today.
Yeah, couldn’t ask for more.
She presented me my latest test result, it was having a negative reading for my Liver profile which is caused by the Methotrexate Inj. And all because I have achieved 4 normal result for Beta-hCG; the more reason for her to stop giving me jab. (The original plan was to me 3 more jabs after obtaining the first normal reading for Beta-hCG.)
It has been 3 months since where I first discovered my molar pregnancy. I was treated with D&C and then chemo jab. And together with round of different tests, making me feeling very down during these period. These 3 months to anyone might be just another quarter of year blinked by, but to me, it’s the longest 3 months ever in my life.
I hope my energy level will go up. I have many entries with great details on my treatment, on how I still manage to teach Yvette during this period and as well as my thought. I am glad that I blog. This site is definitely an insurance worth for me to invest.
Thanks for all the kind words and encouragement.
Thanks for all the support from my dearest hubby and my sister.
Lastly thanks for all the understanding my dearest Yvette could ever give it to me.
It is over, and I hope it is finally over….
Due to my condition, weekly blood test for me is a must. You will never feel good if you have to draw blood by a nurse every week. My case is even worse. I have very small vein and it definitely make it difficult to draw my blood.
Last week experience was bad, different needle was used and ended up I have bruise. This week was even worst. (Last week was done by another lab company in the hospital.) Just a moment ago, the nurse got to poke me twice to draw my blood. I can still feel the pain now as I typed on my iPhone.
P.S Two weeks ago I did another MRI scan and I was poked twice for the contrast jab too.
In short, I can be poked more than 3 x per week for my treatment.
I am experiencing some “side effect” which the doctor told me it was not. I have headache during the week and the pain is killing me. I took 6 pandols but still the pain didn’t go away on that day and it finally went off when I was up on the following day.
Next, instead of weight loss, well, it shouldn’t have gain or loss anyway. I am having some gain. Hmmm, I don’t know how to explain on this. I am cutting away one meat from my diet during lunch time yet I am experiencing weight gain.
Exercise? ….. no time!!!
Anyway, I received a good news today, my Beta hCG had finally turned positive. And according to the Dr Wong, she will be giving me another three more dose of Methotrexate Inj. Then the whole treatment will be over.
Can’t wait till that day…
Although I am seeking treatment in private clinic, it is still not possible to get the best timing for all my appointments. As such it is not possible to get D to accompany me to every single treatment and not forgetting we have Yvette to take care.
Anyway today I am off for another MRI Scan on my brain and second chemo jab by myself. Before all these treatment, I have to go hospital to take blood test too.
After sending Yvette to CC, I went to Glen E hospital to take my blood test for this afternoon review. After the test, I proceeded to Paragon for the scan. Again this scan was done “with contrast” again. Due to small vein, the nurse got to poke me twice to find my vein. Of course one ended up with bruise.
I meet up with one of my old friend for lunch after the scan. I am often feel lucky I manage to keep those blossom friendship online going. We have known each other online for more than 6 years. (Ever since I started to blog in 2006.)
I decided to kill my time in the bookstore since my next appointment is at 4.30 pm. I managed to get a book for myself and some books for Yvette too. I had some coffee with my book before I went back to hospital.
I had my second dose of Chemo jab and was happy to learn that the drug was taking effect on me. My Beta hCG had gone down as expected. Hopefully this result will not never reverse again.
