At the oncology appointment prior to my fifth round of chemotherapy last week Dr S told me the pancreatic cancer biomarker (CA 19-9) had reduced from 9,500 to 7,700. He also said he would continue with the lower dose of the four chemo drugs I am on as I feel better in the days following my all-day chemo marathon when on the lower dose.

A CT scan has been booked in for the week after my sixth session, and the results of that scan will help me make a decision about whether I am prepared to undergo another six rounds of chemotherapy. It is going to be a hard decision to make.
