Latest Update on Kirienne ---August 24.
« on: August 24, 2013, 08:49:42 PM »
Hi All,
I just want to let you know that I will NOT be receiving radiation treatments after all. :-) One of the higher up doctors from the UCD Cancer Center, where I was a Clinical Trials Patient, spoke with my surgeon, and it turns out that Clinical Trials patients are NOT allowed to receive radiation after chemo. My surgeon says he's not too worried about this because the most important treatment for me was the chemo. I will have follow up visits with my surgeon however. I'll be seeing his nurse practitioner every three months, and the surgeon himself , every six months until I hit the two year mark. After that, follow up visits will be less frequent.
I'm feeling good! !!!
I had the last visit with my UCD doctor last week, and she assures me that the side effects I am still feeling are quite normal.....lack of concentration, easily distracted and the numbness in feet and hands.
She told me that they will diminish and gradually go away the longer I'm off chemo.
I'm planning to return to work in early October. I want to allow a bit more time for some of these side effects to ease up. :-)

Glad to hear you're doing okay.  I'm sure you're not exactly upset over not having to have radiation.

I hope your visits with the doctors continue to bring good news.

This sounds like positive news, Kirienne.  Take the time you need to regain your strength and get your feet back on the ground.  Positive thoughts will continue to be sent your way!

Oh this is good news, Kirienne. All the treatments are behind you. Now is the time to recuperate and get well. Time to renew your energy and do some favorite hobbies: reading, writing, sewing costume cloths on dolls(PS. although I only recommend this if your eyesight is good and you have a steady hand, I do not know how Evie does it.)

Thanks for keeping us in the loop.
