So I had a check up/blood work appointment today. As my dr was writing his notes I saw one of the forms I filled out when I first saw him, which was dated June 21! A year ago yesterday was my first oncology appointment!
So, my blood work was very good, my dr felt no enlarged lymph nodes, and I DIDN'T pass out when I got my port flushed! And the blood came out no problem! (Sometimes the flush will go in but no blood will come out. That's when I start to psychologically freak out and pass out).
I get a regular old CT in Sept and then probably not again for another 6 months, then yearly after that. He wants to do yearly scans for the next 5 years because he thinks scanning too much is unnecessary especially since I was No Evidence of Disease by the halfway point of chemo, I responded well and have a low risk for recurrence.
I said I want my port out and as soon as my dr comes back into town (sometime in July) we will set up an appointment for that!
Also, I mentioned how my neck ached sometimes and he said it is probably psychosomatic, which is what I was thinking too. There is no reason for it to hurt.
ok, well I just wanted to do a full update of my appointment on here instead of in a facebook status.
hugs and <3s
