Okay, I’m feeling better now. I have my survivor fitness class tonight at the Y. I’ve missed the last three classes. The instructor even texted me stating they’d been missing me in class.
I’m hoping the worst of the chemo is over with now, and that the Taxol will be easier so that I won’t have bad days like with the AC. The AC really screwed with my ability to focus on preparing for bimx/recon surgery. Now it’s time to make some serious strides forward. Don’t know if I’ll make end of year. My MedOnc doctor has given me a three-month timeframe after chemo (which ends in early November), even though she’d prefer sooner than later. So, just after the first of the year is doable. I need to strive for year-end through. I just need to do it!
It’s either radiation or surgery and I don’t want to do radiation, and because I’m BRCA1 and the cancer is triple-negative, surgery is inevitable at this point. I’ve faced a number of obstacles over the past few years, which I haven’t divulged here, but the truth is I was planning for preventive surgery. Cancer struck first.
