Update – Cancer Free!

I haven’t posted in a while. My computer is broken and even though we have an abundance of electronics that would get the job done, I just like my computer.

I had my last “fill” yesterday at the plastic surgeons and as I lay here I can hardly breathe. I am having muscle spasms in my back and shoulders and it hurts. I know it will pass over the next few days but, right now I am very impatient. I’m probably going back to work next week. I have a doctors appointment on Monday (I still have to have my back drained every week) and I’m hoping that will end soon.

I was hoping to have all surgeries done this year (insurance) but, the doctor wants me to “rest” for 6-8 weeks to allow things to heal more. I will probably have my next surgery in Feb. The idea is that after the “rest” period, the doctor thinks that he can finish reconstruction in one surgery. He also will work with my GYN and any surgery that he is going to do will be done at the same time too! (So, hopefully one more surgery only!)

I have been hesitant to say this because I still have that on the horizon, but I AM CANCER FREE. I am taking the hormonal chemo pill and so far only a few hot flashes, but nothing I can’t handle. Will write more later. Maybe I’ll admit to what tv shows I’ve been watching!!
