    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I will be having my last chemo in 2 days. I'm glad to be done but nervous about the future. The ACT was what I had. The 4 rounds of ACT was really rough. The taxol I have tolerated pretty well. Just praying that it did it's job.

    Mastectomy

    Procedure or Surgery

    I had surgery on March 2. Went back into surgery early the next day. A capillary got missed and was bleeding. Second surgery stopped the bleeding and cleaned things up. But since the surgeries I feel like I'm on an emotional roller-coaster. Now I have fluid building up @ incision site. I'm so ready to be done with this!

    Went as Expected: Disagree
    Minimal Recovery: Agree

    Other Care

    Tomorrow I have my 6 mths onc appointment. Didn't think I would be so anxious. Finding myself antsy and unsettled. Can't sit still. I feeling great otherwise but that looming "What if" is hanging in the background. Will this ever go away?
