Courage needed for last treatment

hi Mariann...

I am very happy to hear that you decided to have your last treatment. We all know how discouraging all of this can be but in the end it is worth it.

When I was supposed to have my last treatment, my white count was a little low. Not dangerously low, just slightly and the chemo nurses would not give me my treatment. Unfortunately my oncologist was not in that day otherwise she said that she would have given it to me. Anyway, after alot of ranting and raging on my part, her covering doctor came to me and said, "Calm down, you tolerated 100% of each treatment, your ca125 number is low and your blood work is great. Consider yourself finished, you do not even need the last treatment". WHAT WHAT!!! They told me 6 treatments and come hell or high water, I was going to get that 6th and final treatment, which I did the following week.

You see, in my mind, had I not had that last treatment and there was a microscopic particle left, I would never have forgiven myself or that covering doctor.

I certainly hope that this makes some kind of sense to you. May your last treatment be swift and easy.
