Tomorrow I am having my ovaries and tubes removed laparoscopically. That is the final step in my battle with bc! I feel like I can get on with my life after this is done. It's like I've been living in some sort of strange limbo. I was diagnosed just after moving (hubby took another job) so I didn't have a job yet. I didn't feel like I could apply for a job knowing I going to have more surgery. Tomorrow will be my 4th surgery within a 4 month period. Nothing is planned after that (no chemo, radiation or hormone therapy). There is a chance my plastic surgeon will need to "touch up" my implants but, they are ok at this point.

So, I'm kind of excited. I hate job hunting but, I so need to get out there! I want to meet people and to feel productive. Just wanted to share my good news!

Thanks, El

    Great News. Hopefully I will be able to say that soon. I go in for my bilateral mastectomy on Thursday and if all goes well, I will not have any treatments of any kind. I am scared but so ready to get this over with. Anyway, happy for your good news!
