Hello Pinks! I am recruiting some rowdy gals to join me virtually on Monday 2/11 while I have a total hysterectomy and a bladder fix. (Yay! No more stopping to cross my legs before I sneeze.!) I was on Tamoxifen for two years...couldn't handle it, sick ALL the time. I've been on Arimidex since Sept '12. I am having pain in my knees, shoulders, and hands. But it still isn't as bad as I felt on Tamoxifen.
As luck would have it, I started having a pain in the 'good sister' on Monday. I could tell it was probably an infection of some sort. Went to onco on Tuesday, and they did sono. Sono showed a spot, so they wanted a mammo. Then they said they wanted me to see my surgeon and have a biopsy. Joy. They said it's because of my history, and they want to be extra careful. I was fine at the dr office, but on the way back to work I went kookoo for cocoa puffs. Cried the rest of the day, in front of everyone. So embarrassing. The visit with the surgeon was nice. She said the spot they saw was most likely the infection, so she wants me to finish the antibiotic, have the surgery on Monday, and she will see me on the 25th. She said that even if it happens to be another cancer, it's half the size as the first one we removed and she's not worried. Sooo...another two weeks of waiting to see what it is. I'm going to believe that it's just the infection because I don't have the energy to worry about that AND heal from Monday's surgery. So I picked concentrating on healing.
So while I'm watching winter storm Nemo from the window at work, I decided to ask for some help. Loud music, booze, noise makers, chicken and noodles, brownies... anything??? A card game, perhaps. A real funny movie would be great too. If we can get out of the house. LOL.
I hope all the NE Pinks are weathering the storm ok. Please check in and let us know. Ayse?? How's it by you? Who else is in the blizzard band???
Thanks, Ladies. You're amazing and wonderful and inspiring and supportive and... <3
