six weeks since avastin

Yesterday, I had my first check up since having my last avastin infusion. My Xray had not change - which is a very good thing. I was a little nervous about what might happen after the end of the avastin. Basically, Dr. Einhorn says that I am doing very well. No change of meds or routine. He said that someone in my situation would normally call for a follow up in six months. However, he feels that my situation is unique enough to warrant more frequent follow up. So, I will be returning in two months for Xrays and another checkup.

Basically, I am still in remission. The nosebleeding and headaches from the avastin have just about cleared up. My feet still hurt from the peripheral neuropathy. My left shoulder is still "frozen". My energy level is so-so; but, quite a bit better now that I am getting a full night sleep using the ambien. I won't be running any marathons very soon. But, I feel pretty good considering.
