The last pit of fatigue and nausea…

Just a short update: IT’S BEEN AWFUL! The first 15 out of 16 cycles were much more manageable than this….

Today, I still feel overwhelmingly tired, but I do think I feel a little bit better… I think I do. Or maybe I just want to feel better so very badly…

In other news, surgery date has been set: 13 Feb 2012.
Twenty days from surgery – bilateral mastectomy.
I’m nervous… but I’m also looking forward to finishing this last step of the overall treatment plan. I’m hoping for NO SURPRISES!

Next week I’ll have MRI, PET, and an echo. Again – hoping for boring results – i.e., no evidence of cancer!

Hope everyone has a good day.
