I read Kris sisters post before I left for my follow up scans this a.m. in tears. Kris was so kind and well informed, and despite her own setbacks and the relentlessness of her own disease, she was always reaching out to others. I will miss her.
Now I begin the wait for the results of my scans and bloodwork, as I near the 1 year anniversary of my diagnosis. I am also being worked up for "adrenal insufficiency" that may or may not be related to the chemo. I had a few mysterious and unexplained bouts of low potassium the year prior to all the cancer stuff. Since chemo, I have needed mega replacement of potassium, until the nephrologist put me on aldactone for my blood pressure. There is a chance that an "unrelated and prob benign" adrenal tumor is causing this, which may mean more surgery.
What a year this has been, and, while trying to hold my anxiety in check, I find myself reflecting on all that has happened to me.
I realize that I have so much to be grateful for, and meeting the folks here has been an important part of seeing me through this far.
Keep me in your prayers...I see the onc and nephrologist next Friday for my appointment. Here's hoping for good news. Thanks for all your support; you are all proof of how to live despite this disease. Regards, Judy
