Stage 4 Lung Cancer Dawn peeing like a race horse

Today day #150 since chemotherapy began, I was supposed to begin Round 5 of chemotherapy, mo’ carboplatin + altima,  over these past two weeks … however blood counts were out of whack, anemia ruled and instead I have needed two separate blood plasma transfers ... or a total of 4 bags of blood plasma ... with even a small bag of lasix thrown in ... in the meantime it’s force liquids … 96 oz daily and just 'pee like a race horse' …

Keeping fingers crossed blood counts stabilize and chemo can return beginning of next week

... after all chemo is what is attacking cancer ... blood counts and such are a detour about me  ... Stage 4 is too short to be taking breaks!!

  2. Patrick,
    Don't think of it as a break from chemo, but as some additional support and resources to continue the attack. Hang in there ... Healing energy and prayers.

  5. As a sign of gratitude for how my wife was saved from CANCER, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My wife suffered cancer in the year 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because she was my all and the symptoms were terrible, she always complain of abnormal vaginal bleeding, and she always have pain during sexual intercourse. . we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure her. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and so many other with similar body problem, and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure to cancer . I never imagined cancer. has a natural cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my wife will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my wife used it and in one months time she was fully okay even up till this moment she is so full of life. cancer. has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony.
