monday brings no better news
we have finally had the oncology meeting. The news was unsatisfying and hard to swallow. I start chemo tomorrow morning. I was diagnosed with "POORLY DIFFERENTIATED CARCINOMA WITH UNKNOWN ORIGIN" at a stage 4. AKA "THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT IT REALLY IS NOW". The time frame to keep looking for answers is limited and we are jumping straight into treatment. They gave me statistics for 70 patients 50% did not get past 6 months. 35% made it over a year. 15% have made it close to 3 years. with no remittance. we plan to change statistics permanently.
