I am starting to read my chemo cycle very well. Today is the day that I can start getting out and doing stuff. My next cycle’s normal days start on Christmas Eve – excellent timing! I will do more Christmas organisation in the lead up to next Friday’s chemo and then it will be a relaxed run into Christmas. OH is taking the 2 days off before Christmas so that he is around to help with any last minute stuff (like the food) that needs doing, and the girls will be helping too.
I had my CT scan on Monday and we will see what the results are at my assessment next Wednesday.
I also got the report on my private mammogram done when I first got diagnosed. I have a cyst or probably benign lump in my left breast as well as everything that is going on in my right breast with the IBC. Even more reason to have them both off I say.
I am waiting on a surgeon consultation appointment in the public sector, and it is contingent on that as to what happens from here. If they do not want to take my left breast off or at least do a biopsy to check that it is benign I will go back to my private breast clinic and get them to do it. Thank good for Southern Cross Medical Insurance. We have had our money’s worth for me over the last few months. Being able to go private for initial diagnosis and consultation with breast specialist and oncologist made all the difference to the early diagnosis and treatment of the disease.
I have made an appointment at the dentists to get my tooth temporarily fixed next Monday so that’s all good.
I am still finding out the details of my competition win so will let you know whats happening there when I know.
