Cancer Update

Monday, June 27, 2011

I have had my lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy. My margins were clear and my node was negative. I am waiting for results from an oncotype test to determine if I need chemotherapy. I am obviously hoping I don't. If I don't I will begin Hormone Therapy for 5 years. My life feels like it has been on hold and I have to wait until July 7th for the results of the oncotype test. My broken toe is healing and I got the go ahead to start my walking again. The doctor said I have to go slowly for 3 more weeks. I have walked for 30 minutes three days. I want to get one more day at 30 minutes and 1.3 miles and then I will go to 2.5 miles. I am happy to be walking again, my weight has gone up but my eating has not been the best and obviously I have had no activity for almost a month between the broken toe and surgery. My precious dog was mauled and killed in the midst of all of this. I hope to get a new dog once I know the cancer status. I am going to be volunteering for the local Susan G. Komen affiliate.

    Cynthia, I am glad that your test
    results were good. I am hoping that
    you will only have to take the anti
    hormone therapy. So sorry to hear
    about your dear dog, how tragic,
    with all these other things going on.
    I know that you are happy to be
    back to walking again. I love
    walking, it is so good for us. Best
    Wishes. emoticon

    It sounds as if the news so far is good. I am really sorry to hear about your dog. I know how hard that loss can be. You do sound like you are doing your best to take care of yourself. I am glad to hear you are walking. Continue being positive and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
