Hi LockeKopp: Welcome to NJ. Im so sorry you need to be here at BCO at age 29! Where are you in terms of treatment. Have you had surgery yet? I think this can be a scary place to be before you have your treatment plan mapped out. Hang in there, I'm sure you'll love hanging out here with the most wonderful women you'll ever meet (or never meet...in person).
Hi Sandi! That's a bummer about having to go back for more surgery. Do you know which chemo you will be doing? I just finished TCX4 in Feb.
Claire, good for you with working out! I've been getting back into exercising, but just had my TE exchange on Monday. PS said no exercising for 2 weeks. It's frustrating, but I'll take it as a 2 week "couch potato pass". I love to swim too, but couldn't imagine doing that now, with BMX & recon. I wonder if that's a possibility for this summer?
Bonseye: I got all my BC tx at Overlook Hosp. I was very happy there. I also work in the healthcare field- I'm an RN. I never worked in Oncology, so all the BC "stuff" was new to me. You're gonna love MSK in Basking Ridge. I went there for a 2nd opinion and was very impressed. Not only is it beautiful, but it's staffed by Drs who, for the most part, work in NYC. Also, there's a shopping center at the foot of their "driveway" that has the most amazing Mediteranian Restaurant.
Joan: I totally "get" why you are doing your chemo at Morristown. I actually know a few people who went there because that's where their MDs were. I've heard all good things. Have you started chemo yet? Which one?
Have a great night NJ ladies,
