  • All about Gertrude

    Gertrude is the name we decided to call my cancerous breast hence the title of this blog. Although I had to keep my breast through chemo and radiation due to the nature of IBC - once it 'blew up' it no longer looked like my breast and I couldn't wait to get rid of it. Calling it Gertrude was a way of seperating it from myself. This main page is where I write about the general goings on that relate to Gertrude, there is another page that are more a diary of treatments etc This blog is a public blog so although I am being very honest about my battle with Gertrude I have "changed names to protect the innocent" - because everyone can see it if you write comments on the blog pages please use the same abbreviations for other family member or friends that I do. Please feel free to ask questions if you want clarification because then other people who might have been wondering the same thing can read your question and our answers.

Still in here!!

Had my ultrasound this morning. Good news is that I dont have a huge collection of fluid in the incision site or the ‘tunnel’ so they dont have to re-open me up to clean it out – bad news is that they are not letting me out of here until the infection shows significant improvement. Which means I am in here for the next few days probably, definitely the next couple. I went for my radiation this morning and will have my assessment for my herceptin shot (due on friday) and my radiation tomorrow. Just walking across from the main hospital building where my ward is to the oncology outpatients building. Guess the silver lining is that I dont have to worry about transport.

Will update on wednesday if I am still in here
