Dex is nothing short of agonizing sometimes. High blood sugar, sleeplessness and then the crash.
In a week and a half, I’ll have a blood test called IFE to see if it’s helping me. Dr. Orlowski thought maybe I could try DVd if this doesn’t help. DVd consists of Doxil, Vincristine and dex. It’s different from VAD, because, “DOXIL is made of fat bubbles called liposomes that contain doxorubicin. In DOXIL, these liposomes are surrounded by a layer of hairlike strands made from polyethylene glycol.” It has only a few hour (maybe a little more) infusion rate, as opposed to 4 days.
