I didnt' mention my app't that I had yesterday with the gyno/oncologist on the appointments this week thread...
so what?....It's obvious that I'm not the brightest bulb in the box!
anyway, it went wonderfully. She says I'm doing so well and my numbers are fabulous and I look great and my vagina is perfectly positioned post op and yada yada yada
She DID say that my racing heartbeat post-treatment last time may have been from the steroids given w/a chemo treatment, so she is having them lower the dosage on that to see if it helps. Funny, the 2
s I spoke to in the office never thought of THAT! And I love them! I'm surprised they didnt' think of that right away even when I questioned if it was treatment-related.
She (my doc) really was a confidence booster. she said my type of Ovca, endometroid, generally responds so well to chemotherapy that combined with how great everything else is going, she wouldn't be surprised if at the end of my 6 treatments I will be able to wash my hands of this whole ordeal and walk away w/out ever looking back.
Of course, that's a bold statement and we all know there is no forgetting what we've been thru or the fact that we'll always have to be watched. I just love my doctor and she always makes me feel so much better coming OUT of her office then how I felt going INTO her office !
She did mention that at after my 6 treatments, we'll sit down and see how things are doing....talk about consolidation therapy...but again, she said she's not sure if I"ll be a candidate for that right now...depending on how things look by then (as in , will I even need that?).
To hear her talk about how wonderfully I'm doing gave me chills and brought tears to my eyes, to be honest with you. I said, "Oh, I bet you say that to all the girls!" She told me in no uncertain terms that she shoots from the hip and would never be anything less than honest with me. So...my adulation of her continues
I'm getting my 4th treatment tomarrow...and then MAYBE back to work 30 hours per week next Tuesday! (yep, I"m STILL on the fence about that, but after hearing this encouraging news yesterday I'm really thinking I'll take the job!)
