En-route to London as I write for my first chemo session post-surgery. Seems too soon in some ways as this is the first time I've left the house since being discharged from the hospital. I've not even been out of bed much before 10/11am so the 6am alarm call was a bit of a shock!
Meeting with Oncologist first, presumably to assess how well I'm doing, and to discuss this next stage of the treatment plan.
This is my second bout of chemo, as I had 8 weekly sessions pre-surgery, mostly Taxol with 3 sessions of Carboplatin & 2 of Avastin. Am sort of assuming it'll be the same this go round.
Have made a brief list of questions to ask her, which mostly consist of what's the plan post-chemo if everything goes according to plan. If anyone has any constructive advice, I'm all ears. It's difficult sometimes to think about what I should be asking. I tend to 'trust' in her knowledge & experience as she is one of the leading Oncologists in her field, whereas (apart from knowing my own body) I'm prob a novice!
Here's hoping I cope with this next enslaught, & the side effects are no worse than they were before!
At least it's the weekend!! Good health to all
