      Once you have an actual diagnosis and know what comes next, it does get easier. It did for me, at least. Hang in there! You are almost there.

      Sounds like you certainly have the right attitude! I was at this point when I got my hair cut in a Mohawk and dyed it hot pink--it helped me "gear up" for the fight against cancer...but in retrospect, maybe it was my version of war paint?

      Hope you get your important answers. Knowing the basics of what you are dealing with will ease some of the anxiety. But, if you're like me.....there are always questions. And questions begetting questions.

      I strongly recommend that you keep a journal or notebook (rather than loose papers) where you can write down your questions as you think of them...(like at 3 AM). When ever I went to my treatments I always had a paper (I didn't bring the whole notebook) I pulled out. I wrote down
      the answers, too. Even though I didn't have chemo brain, I frequently forget or confuse things.
      Better to write it all down.

      Also the journal is a good way to keep track of any daily side effects - like temperature, gastrointestinal (GI) details, pain, fatigue, ANY *bizarre occurences. If you are having chemo, the nurses or doc will want to know and will ask about these things. I am fortunate that my experience with oncologist, surgeon, radiologist and their staffs were all very positive. They were all helpful and considerate and accomodating. I hope yours are the same.

      *My bizarre occurrence was my hand muscles seizing up when slicing/dicing onions. Not so odd once I learned the taxotere I was taking affected nerves in your fingers, and I guess by extension, your hand.

      I found it not as bad, so far, as I thought it'd be. Like they say, waiting is TOUGH! Listen to your body and stay on top of the side affects. HUGS!
