I had a lovely 4th with dear friends. Hopefully, I will be accepted into their Ren Guild. I miss belonging to a guild.
Spent all three days fighting a headache and increasing heart palpitations. I'm used to having palpitations, used to be a mostly pms occurrence. Since my hysterectomy, they have been increasing and it is kind of scary at times.
I had my six month follow-up with my surgeon. I actually saw my original oncologist which was so nice. She is in complete agreement with my hematology oncologist that I needed the four chemo treatments. She said that I made all the right decisions! I thought so, despite what the other surgeon said.(He thought the chemo was total overkill and not needed).
When I asked about my palpitations and lack of energy she said I need to see my PCP as I may be having problems with my thyroid (as far as the palpitations are concerned). The energy, she told me it will probably take a couple of more months to see any increase. Between the surgery and the chemo, it takes time.
I made an appointment to see my PCP and hopefully he can help. (Oh...*sighs* My oncologist said it is also time for my first colonoscopy. Ugh! *LOL*)
Oh well, onward and upward!
