Chemo and blood clots
I’m losing trust in my Oncologist, makes everything seem like it’s no big deal and now I have blood clots which I’ve been injecting 0.7 enoxaparin 2x day for 11 days now. When I ask a question she has me come in for ultra sound, I’ve had 5 now within 1-1/2 weeks and I’m just told clots are stable, not worse but not better. I had the clots for 2 weeks before they took my breathing problem seriously and finally ordered the first ultra sound once I got severe pain in my armpit and demanded to see the Doctor. I have HER2 and estrogen positive breast cancer, having my fourth chemo tx in 3 days and I now have an enlarged liver which postponed my tx last week, was only given herceptin last week. Further, they had me do chemo first to shrink the 5.5cm tumor before surgery so they wouldn’t have to take out so much with lumpectomy. Met with breast surgeon last week, told me cancer was gone but she has to take out the original size of tumor with lumpectomy, I didn’t want plastic surgery but now have no choice given the amount that will be taken out with lumpectomy. Half way thru with chemo, should I get 2nd Oncology opinion and breast surgery opinion??? Any advice is greatly appreciated!
