You sure will be free!!!
Janet, I'm so glad you were able to get back on schedule!!!
What kind of car are you looking for?
I have my last chemo tomorrow. I will be so glad to be done. I'm just bone tired at this point, especially since I haven't been able to eat a meal in 8 weeks. If I never have another milkshake or more raw zucchini, it will be too soon. I'm making a list of all the restaurants I want to hit after my sense of taste comes back. :LOL I hope it doesn't take too long after the chemo, bu the nurse said to expect it to be another three weeks or so. After the initial binge, I'm going to try to maintain all this bonus weight loss--I haven't been this svelte in years.
My oncologist was there for my last appointment, and he and his nurse both told me I have been the "model chemo patient." Now there's an award nobody wants to win!
He likes the fact that I'm always questioning everything, contrary person that I am.
AuntieM, I didn't really quiz him about exact survival rates, but I did ask about some scary graphs I'd found. For my dx, they showed a 20 year survival rate of only 40%, which freaked me out. But they also showed a second curve, with much higher rates, maybe 80%, with 10 year survival rates. I just wanted to confirm with him that the curve with longer data was lower because it reflected the less effective treatments of 20 years ago.
Didn't you get the BRCA testing done? Did your insurance pay for it? Did you have any worries about getting dropped from insurance over the results? I've got an appointment to talk to the geneticist in a week about the pros/cons of doing it. I'm still fairly torn about it.
Hugs to all you brave ladies!
