Ever since this journey started in July, I stayed away from red meat and alcohol because I read it "feeds" cancer cells. I did eat red meat from time to time, maybe once every two weeks but of course felt so scared about how it would affect my tests the week after.
Recently my hcg results have been like this:
September 25- 6,446
October 2- 6,604
October 9- 3,882
October 16- 4,449
October 24- 2,481
My levels are supposed to be going down, not up. It went up twice, but not consecutively. My doctor is waiting for those levels to go up two consecutive times before changing my treatment and I'm annoyed at this point.
Annoyed because I stayed away from red meat and alcohol for three months, and it had no affect on me while I ate and drank to my hearts desire in Japan. If I knew this, I would've been had wine on my Friday nights or gone out with friends when they asked! But nope, for three months I was living scared.
I honestly want my l my doctor to change my medication. Methotrexate makes it go down so slow and I have to get the shot once per week. With the other medication I get it once every two weeks which means my trips can be longer than one week.
I'm going to stop living so scared and eat/drink whatever I want. If my levels go up because of it, so be it. At least my meds will change.
Molar pregnancies are very uncommon. Not many people have heard about a molar pregnancy, so I'm here to share my story.
