January 30th marked not just the end of the month, but the end of my radiation treatments (with minimal side effects).
This was followed by imbibing and eating an obscene amount of champagne and shrimp cocktail.
Moving forward, I'll just have follow up appointments, will take my vities and meds and maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine.
My writing class has begun and with any luck, I'll be able to get something about my experience published by October (BCA Month) 2008.
So stay tuned.
Make an appt to get your mammo if you haven't already.
And keep reading. Remember, you have to remain informed in order to make any decisions about your health. Don't rely on doctors alone. If you've learned anything, opinions vary. Remember, just a few months ago I was set on getting a mastectomy based on the advice of one doctor and survivor that scared the bejeezus out of me? Whew, am I glad I didn't. There would've been NO NEED for this whatsoever. I'm so glad I continued to do my research and eventually fell into the hands of a wonderful surgeon.
Thanks for sticking with Twin Peeks and not changing the channel. I hope it's been informative. I'll be in touch with any new developments (all good of course)!
P.S. Title credits go to D!
