Followed up with my oncologist this morning...
Walking in, he asked what I was doing there.
Not sure why he asked, I replied, "Because you told me to follow-up with you in 3 months. Why?"
He replied: "Because you're doing great. All your lab tests came back normal."
Having battled stage 4 Cancer (3 1/2 year survivor), I felt awesome!
During the appointment, I mentioned I'm participating in the weight loss program through my insurance company while utilizing a website called SparkPeople.
His big concern was that I don't lose too much weight too fast. The reason being that extreme sudden weight loss / weight gain can be a sign that the Cancer could be coming back. The other concern being that I don't lose so much weight that I become unhealthy.
I explained that I'm weighing in weekly & that I track everything from nutrition to fitness activities.
He said that was good and to keep him posted with my progress.
Leaving the Cancer Care Center, I felt amazingly awesome!
