I saw my Oncoloyist Tuesday and I was informed that my cancer is still local. This is very good news for me because I was told that the chances of the cancer returning in the very same location is 1out of 9. He also stated that I do not have to have chemo only radiation for about 6 weeks. I am getting a second opinion about that. I just don't want it to return a 3rd time. I may not be as lucky next time.
I have several questions maybe someone can answer. I am aware that getting radiation cause you to be tired. What I would like to know is would I be able to drive myself back and forth to get my radiation or do I need someone else to drive me? My physcian said that the tireness comes about the 2nd or 3rd week. I would also like to know is would I be able to work a full time job? I know these or some of the questions I can ask my Radiologist tomorrow but I just thought I would get your opinion since you all have already had radiation beforedy.
My appointment with the Radiologist is tomorrow. I had a MRI yesterday. I guess I will get the results of the test next Wednesday when I go to see my Breast Specialist.
