No Chemo

Yesterday I went to receive chemo and found out 4 our 5 of my liver enzymes were high, so they sent me home without chemo. I found out the liver can cause back aches, stomach aches and vomiting. I've been experiencing all of those symptoms and feel kind of relieved that I know why I've been feeling bizarre. They aren't sure what caused my liver functions to go high, but feel like it's built up chemo. I also took lots of antibiotics last week and that could of caused it or it could be cancer. MDA is suppose to call me today with a plan. I'll either wait a week and do blood work again or go ahead and do the catscan. I'd prefer to do the scan and see what's going on, but I'll have to wait and see what they decide.
