So the new plan is as follows. Whenever I get the stupid drain out of me I will begin chemo with a drug they know is safe during pregnancy. I will discontinue chemo 4 weeks before I deliver the baby. I guess that's because I need to get my platelets and blood count up so I don't bleed out during delivery. After I deliver the baby I will continue another 12 weeks of chemo on a different drug that is not yet proven safe for the baby. After that I will have radiation and then I will be done with treatment. I'm disappointed. Doesn't the doctor know that I already had a great plan in place? I guess he doesn't really care about my plan to make cancer treatment as convenient as possible. I guess I have to be thankful for that. He cares about getting me healthy. He told me today that when I became his patient I became part of his family. I totally believe him too. I guess when you're going through cancer it makes you a part of this separate cancer culture.
So for now I'll sit around waiting for my drain to produce less than 30 ML of fluid per day and then the chemo can begin. I am so not looking forward to this.
