Wised- Very nice to meet Calliope, what a beautiful cat. It was so sweet how your son rescued the sweetie and that she found her way to your family! It was meant to be. I really hope your fatigue starts to lift soon. That is something I didn't expect to be so bad. I totally understand where you are coming from.
Librarygirl. I am so glad for your good news, you deserve all of the good news! And you are almost done right? I hope the shoulder expert can resolve the issue for you. It sounds hopeful and glad they have you with the right specialist! That was thoughtful of your techs to call your RO to calm your fears.
Ghostie- Glad you made it out, and I hope you are still curled under a blanket relaxing with the heating pad. That sounds like a truly sucky situation. Props to you, I think I would have gone crazy if I was stuck at work that long.
Cherryi- I am so glad you are doing well, and wish you the best as you put this behind you. We are all pretty badass for going through this right? I hope for very few side effects for you with taking the dreaded pill! All the best to you in the coming year.
My check up at the PS went well, she said some swelling, but she anticipated that. She said it doesn't look like it is putting any stress on my incision. I will see her two weeks post rads but she said to call anytime with concerns. She did also say the pain/tightness in my side is also to be expected due to the swelling.
Just a random share, but at my job we are losing our physician group, most of these Doctors I have worked with for 23 years. Well it was the last shift with our most beloved Doctor last night. He is also a pathologist and he was one of the first people I went to after my diagnosis. He answered countless questions, and even spoke to some of his colleagues about my case when my nodes came back positive. He is one of the most caring physicians I have worked with. I failed at trying to convey how grateful I was for him due to crying so hard, all I could squeak out was thank you for everything.
