My IP port was taken out today. Good riddance to the silly little thing that never worked and only caused pain and frustration.
The surgery took about 5 minutes including cutting, pulling the port out, sutures and chit-chat with the ONC. Then I drove myself home.
Husband is too busy to come with me; working extra hard to support my wig addiction. I ordered 3 more wigs from England yesterday (blonde, brunette with auburn hi-lights and two-tone ombre); they are just too cute to resist.
Also, my CA125 is 6 today; 1 point down from November. Next blood test will be in 3 months.
I asked my ONC about Metformin for recurrence prevention. She refused to prescribe it, said it will cause seizures, and sarkastically called it "another new voodoo out there like shark cartilage and snake oil". Oh well, I will just have to get if from my family doctor.
