I had my chemo port surgery on May 30th. I was scared to death. My cousin got stuck at work and could not be there with me. I found out my boyfriend got off work early and got to the hospital about 15 minutes after they took me to surgery. Oh well, I said my prayers and told them okay let's go do this! It took them a few minutes to get me situated on that narrow surgery table. They gave me knock out juice and away the surgery went. I woke up in recovery asking how did it go and they replied fine. I have to get my lumpectomy site looked at by the nurse on June 6th hope I can get my surgeon's follow up the same day. Should I start taking the anti-nausea medicine the morning of chemo or the night before? I said I would ask my oncology nurse when to start taking the meds. Start chemo June 8th. I will go armed with a smoothie even though that supply us with popicles at Mercy Breast Center in Baltimore, MD. I just love my center because everyone is nice and acts like they really care about you.
Peace & Blessings to All,
