Another month, another jab

I had my 3rd injection of Fulvestrant today. So far, so good, but the results of the CT scans I’m having next week will reveal if it’s working or not.

I have to call the airlines to see what I have to do to take my June injection with me to Holland. It comes in an injection kit, complete with needle and syringe, so they may have some concerns about me putting it in my carry-on. Also, it has to be refrigerated, so I’ll have to have it in a cooler bag with ice packs. I plan to go to a clinic in the Netherlands to have the shot.

The side effects are minimal (especially compared to Taxotere!) but I'm still having a fair bit of bone and joint pain.
