Round 6 begins next week. The FINAL round. The FINAL weeks of sucktitude. The FINAL push to the end of this particularly crazy chapter in my life.
Also, the final shifts are up for grabs, sign up!
We met with Dr. Tierney who is thrilled with my progress — in her words, I’ve “handled more than most people are able to.” (sidenote: She’s 10 days YOUNGER than me. How’s that for some shit? Clearly, the woman is a genius. Or as Kenji said, “I feel woefully unaccomplished.”)
Just before Round 5, I started getting neuropathy in my feet. We’re hopeful it’s only temporary, since it started late in the chemo game, and I’ve been combating it as best as possible with massage and reflexology. Only time will tell.
Speaking of time, we nailed down some timelines for my post-treatment game plan. Here’s what we anticipate:
- 2-3 weeks post-chemo will be my CT scan & CA-125 blood test
- Pending results, port removal surgery will occur 2-3 weeks after that. It’s an out-patient surgery, so it should be easy.
Then I can resume normal life until we have to deal with the boobies. I am so ready.
