I saw my oncol. for my 6th month post-treatment visit and everything is clear! As he said, there's no lumps or bumps! I have scar tissue from the radiation in my underarm and lateral side of my breast that should ease with time and massage. I have tried on scaling back on the Gabapentin that I'm taking for the neuropathy and just about all the symptoms have come back. I told him and he said to scale right back up and it takes a while...to heal, if ever. Oh well! I'm to see him in 4 months now. I'm moving in the right direction!
This Sunday, with my husband, son and daughter-in-law, I am walking in the 5K race for breast cancer in our community called "Especially for You". All proceeds go to pay for mammos and treatment for people who can't afford the costs. Last year over 16,000 people participated. I was there, sick as a dog, while I was still in the midst of taking AC. We walked the 1K part and I almost didn't make that. It was awe inspiring to see the mass of people. I didn't feel like a survivor then but this year I'm heading to the survivor tent to proudly get my survivor scarf and part of the survivor picture! It's a wonderful feeling!
Hugs to all!
