Update – 02/06/07

06 Feb

I saw my medical oncologist today. We had a very short discussion. I told her I had read about Tamoxifen and am not inclined to take it, but I would consider Arimidex. She said there is no data supporting the use of Arimidex for DCIS, but a clinical trial is supposed to be starting at UTSA this spring. However, it will be a double-blind study, so I could end up with Tamoxifen. Consequently, I’m not interested in doing that. I see her again in October.

My radiation planning session is in the process of getting scheduled for Feb. 26th. This will be a one-hour session, during which they will do all the necessary measurements to position me properly for the radiation therapy. The radiation physics department will then plan the course of treatment, which my radiation oncologist will then review. If he approves, my treatments will get started. This will probably be Thursday, March 1.

That’s it for today. Tomorrow I have my regular semi-annual dental exam.
