Kirienne has finished with chemo!!!!!
« on: July 30, 2013, 02:34:23 PM »
Hi All, Just a note to let you know I had my last chemo cycle last week (on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) I got thru the post chemo weekend okay..only being a little worse for wear by Sunday night. Now I just need to regain my strength and let the chemo drugs work their way out of my system. I will be having a follow up visit with my surgeon on August 12 and after that it's on to radiation. (I think he is going to set that up and if I remember correctly, he'd said something about only needing 5 sessions).
Thank you all so much for your prayers and good thoughts, I know they helped. The last I heard from my clinical trials doctor, my CT Scans and cancer marker blood work looked very good, with no signs of any issues.
:-)
I ask for continued prayers and good thoughts for complete healing, and for help in the financial area as well.  ;D

Good to hear!

Take care of yourself.  :)

I am very glad to hear your chemo is over. I thought about you several times especially when I did not see you signed in on the weekly chat.  My best thoughts to you that the rest of the healing will go very quickly.

Good news, Kirienne!  I'm glad that part is behind you and that your tests are looking good.  My thoughts will continue to be with you.

Hooray!  That's a great ordeal. The only GOOD thing about an ordeal is seeing it getting smaller in the rear view mirror. Wishing you all the best through the radiation, and may the clinical trial have KO'd the C-Monster!

Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers, everyone!!!
I met with my surgeon for a follow up visit today, he said  that everything looks good. If my Clinical Trials doctor says that radiation will not conflict with their protocol of my treatment, he'll set up radiation. That will most likely happen in September and he said it'll be 3 treatments over a 10 day period. After that, I am to see his nurse practitioner every 3 months, and the surgeon every 6 months, until I hit the two year mark...then follow up visits will be much less frequent. :-)

Cancer is not the automatic death sentence it was just a very few years ago. 

My late father had four sisters.  All four of them had breast cancer.  Three of the four are still alive.  Aunt Mary died of something else.  (My father and two of my uncles had prostate cancer; father & Uncle Aubrey died of something else; Uncle Gene is still alive.)
