Hi all - thanks for your input! It is reassuring that I am not alone in this scan/thoughts situation.
Shetland, I agree - chasing those thoughts away! I did sign up for a 6 month virtual fitness challenge with friends and family members. 3 days in and doing well! My husband and I are talking about a trip to Europe this September (depends on covid) and we have a group of friends that are planning to attend the 2023 Rugby World cup in France - 2023 kind of made me pause, but...it will be a fantastic trip with really fun people. We are in the early stages of planning this one.
Jaycee - I completely agree with you. I don't think it's on my mind and then, here I am a week (or 5 days) prior to scan and it is there, a little dark cloud or whisper, in the back of my mind. I am working on chasing those dark moments away because truly we can't control this, as you said.
Dutchiris - I reduced to 100mg probably 6 months in and I would say that fatigue is a bit less but, at the same time my cancer caused symptoms went away completely which gave me a lot more energy. Also, I love your Avatar photo!
Candy - thank you for the pocket duty as well as 5/2 info. This is top on my list of topics for my oncologist. I think I have said this before but since I feel really good on Ibrance and have minimal side effects (hair loss, constipation are the top for me) I would like to stay the course. The devil we know, right?
Ok - enjoy the day Ibrancers! Thanks again for being here and your thoughts on my scananxiety.
