Surgery tomorrow and no chemo!

June 10, 2021


I don’t have to get chemo!!!!!!!


So tomorrow morning at 6am is the surgery. Go into OR at 7:30, the surgery takes 3 hours, then a few hours to recover, make sure I eat something/pee etc. Then Netflix and bed and snacks for 2 weeks. Then, a month to heal from surgery, and then into radiation for 6 weeks.

After radiation, to prevent the cancer from coming back, I will be going on monthly shots that will basically kick me into menopause early so that I stop producing estrogen (which is the cancer’s source of food).

So that whole menopause-at-36 thing is kind of scary, but at least it’s not chemo. Chemo is a LOT scarier.

Wish me luck tomorrow! 🍀❤️

    So very glad to know you don’t need chemo. That is such a difficult road. Menopause has it’s difficulties, of course (hot flash, anyone?!?) but it has it’s charms as well (bu-bye tampons!). And if it gives you the advantage you need to beat that damn cancer then it’s a wonderful thing. You have many family members and friends cheering you on. Feed off of our energy!
