Finished all treatments

Monday, July 08, 2013

I'm finally done with all of my treatments. I had my last chemo on January 10, radiation done on March 13, last Herceptin on April 25, and port removed on May 17. My hair has grown back enough that I can forgo a wig or even a hat.

I am trying to motivate myself to get back on track with my nutrition and exercise. It's a lot harder this time around. Though treatment is over, my mind and body is still trying to recover from it all. I have a hard time keeping my eye on the ball.

    I had missed this blog -- but relate to it. Although my "round" of breast cancer sounds like it was less challenging than yours, it took quite a while after physical treatment ended for the mental stuff to kick in . . .

    congrats on finishing treatment! The best thing in the worl you can do for yourself, is fill your body with nutrients that the chemo depleated you of. I am a Breast Cancer survivor going on 2 years of completing my 4 chemos....I wish you love and health! If you ever need to talk im here as well! Im staring over (healthy eating and excersize this week) been up and down w/ weight my whole life, but if I kicked cancers ass I can also kick this weight off too!
