The side effects of Caelyx have been getting worse - H has very sore hands, elbows and knees.  She passes all bottles and containers to me to open.  And she's got a chronic infection under a big toenail.  And the effectiveness of the treatment seems to have decreased - the second lump on her scalp has been growing.  We're seeing her oncologist today and we'll discuss changing to a different treatment.

Also, she's had some bleeding from the newly irradiated lump on her scalp.  She says this is a consequence of skin damage from the radiotherapy, not the cancer itself.
