  • 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.
  • Abbreviations

    OH- Other Half (Hubby), OD- Oldest Daughter, MD- Middle Daugher, YD- Youngest Daughter, SB- soulja boi MD's fiance in the army (now ex fiance), OD's R OD's partner, BS- Breast surgeon whose initials just happen to be BS as well, BC- our GP (family doctor), Dr H- my medical oncologist, all other friends family etc will be referred to as initials etc

missed appointment?

I have just had the wierdest phone message. I got a call to say I had missed an apppointment with my medical oncologist (the one that told me I had a recurrence that sent me to the radiation oncologist, and that I was being referred back to from radiation oncologist) I rung them back and said I would have defintitely been there if I had known but I had had no notification of it – no letter, no phonecall/message, nothing. They said “oh it’s just a review as your under treatment”. I said “no it’s being referred back to him as I can’t have radiation”. “Oh” they said “we will get your appointment rescheduled as soon as possible- we just have to tell the schedulers” – so hopefully I will hear within the next day or two when my new appointment is and it will hopefully be within the next week.  I just wish I had known that I had the appointment today – I haven’t been sleeping well , I get more anxious when I dont know the plan.  Once I have the plan I can handle anything they chuck at me.
