Hi there everyone,
Suburbs, thanks for asking about me...I went through the mill.
After exchange surgery on March 15' btw still hate the new boobs, wish I didn't even bother, I got sick. I have great resistance but this knocked me down. Was misdiagnosed by PCP for two weeks, on strong antibiotics which were ineffective. Went to ER, had mycoplasma pneumonia, super bad, spent a week in the hospital. Discharged 4/18 but still SOB. Heart rate and BP shot up before discharge, now wearing a holter monitor for two weeks even though cardiologist doesn't think it is cardiac related. Have my echocardiogram next week. Missed my Herceptin 3 weeks ago. Doctors almost daily, ugh.
Seeing pulmonologist next Friday and hopefully will be released to go back to work. It ain't fun when you have to relax constantly vs. wanting to.
On a good note, if there is one...hair is growing back, I have a pixie lol, however, it's GRAY. Had my eyebrows tattooed and love them.
Welcome to all the newbies, happy you found us but sorry you are here. I read so many pages but can't remember individual issues so as I read, I prayed for the writer.
Missed you all xoxo. Oh and I start Aromasin today, yuck, side effect is thinning hair...just what we need
