thought I would start this thread to give those who were diagnosed in 2017 or underwent treatments in 2017 a common place to share our lives and adventures

Welcome to all. Together we can learn from each other, lean on each other, and celebrate the good moments in life

Had another MO appointment this morning. Blood work showed numbers high enough to start my next cycle of Ibrance/Letrozole.

I haven’t looked over my numbers yet. I just glanced at the paper and think most looked good so I am pleased

Had my monthly XGEVA shot. Nurse was so good, I didn’t feel the shot at all. Normally there is a bit of a burn while getting the shot. Not today!

I had a Shingles Shot Monday and was a bit concerned I might show a low grade fever today and not be allowed in the cancer center. Lucked out. No fever!!!
