I went to see the chemo doctor yesterday. She was so nice and talked to me for almost an hour. How many doctors take the time to do that? I have to go back to see her in two weeks. She gave me an option....to take chemo and herceptin together or herceptin and radiation. The odds of the cancer coming back is not that much less by taking chemo. Everyone knows what chemo does to you and I cannot imagine not being able to function. You need plenty of rest while you are doing chemo, and that I do not get. Most nights if I get four hours sleep, I am blessed. I would rather for the cancer to kill me than the chemo!
Then I paid my surgeon a visit. No more fluid to drain. That was a plus! So....I'm doing good. My radiation and the herceptin will start after two more weeks! The herceptin is in IV form. It's every three weeks for a year. I sure do wish gas would come down before I have to start that journey. I doubt that happening!!!!
