Just back from ocologist.... he wants to start chemo in two weeks...that will be three weeks from mastectomy surgery. Wow...I was hoping to have a bit more of a 'vacation from Chemo' (had three cycles pre-surgery). So, I gotta heal up quickly and then get on with it.
Path report said margins were clear.... 11 nodes were removed...........I am swollen and sore, but at least path report was a good one and there is now a plan I am aware of.
Tomorrow I go for post-op appt. with surgeon and will see if he removes the drains...one is almost negligible now, .... ok with me if he recommends another week.... they are a royal painm but I will go with whatever he suggests.
Right now I am looking forward to the days of hot bubble baths!

    Good path reports are always a cause for celebration. I'm with you on the bubble baths - now that I don't have to wash my hair(lol), that is one of my favorite things! I hope the chemo goes well for you - I guess the good part of starting back sooner is that you get done sooner. Take care!
