Just a short post to let you Ladies know how my monthly check-up went today. Stage IV with Bone mets. No aches or pains and all blood tests looking good. Still on chemo drugs; Afinitor 10mg & Exemestane 25mg(generic brand for Aromasin). Side effects: dry mouth, fatigue & shortness of breath(if too much exertion). Still taking monthly Zometa infusions,too, to build up my bone mass.
Had a short bout with lymphodema in my right leg a couple of months ago after my hip surgery. Went through P.T. where they massaged my leg and wrapped it to reduce the swelling. Now I have to wear lymphodemia "tights"(like men's pantyhose). Have to wear rubber gloves to get them on,too.
Not N.E.D.,but still kicking! Special thoughts and Prayers to all you Pink Ladies. Thanks for thinking about me.
Your Pink Brother, Robert
