I don't meet with this team again until June. I think I may be on to the next phase of this journey.
As for post-surgical discomfort (aka pain) that has been decreasing every single day and I am pretty much tapered off the pain meds. Sometimes I find myself feeling so good that I will jump up and and do something out of habit. The associated discomfort (aka pain) often reminds me that I am still really sore with certain arm movements and lifting is not yet allowed.
My next follow-up is with the plastic surgeon on Tuesday. Hopefully the swelling will be down, no sign of infection, and the final drain can come out. Later in the day I have an appointment with a Naturopath. I'm really excited to meet with this woman. Hopefully she can help me cruise through chemo although I'm not sure that is even possible. Then, Friday I meet with my medical oncologist who will give me final clearance to start chemotherpy the following week.
I also want to thank everyone for the cards, flowers, food, and goodies. We have not had to cook a single meal this week and have had the yummiest plant-based, leafy green, anti-cancer meals brought over. I must say that I feel kind of guilty when people bring things over. All this resting has resulted in a lot of pent up energy. I am kind of a spaz. Even though I feel great it is really difficult to do things around the house. We really appreciate everyone's kindness.
