It's been 5 days since you were going to the doctor,
let us know how you are going
I go into the dr today at 3:30. I feel like an idiot because the swelling, redness, and warmth are all gone. The left breast is slightly more sensitive when touched, but not by much. I feel like I am about to go pay $15 to show my breast to a male Dr for nothing. I don't feel a lump, just an area that is slightly sore when pressed. My initial reaction? Don't press it. Don't bother it and it won't bother you. I'll update when I get back.
(I caught a cold, so I have hot/cold flashes, extreme fatigue, congestion in face and chest, runny nose, cough. With the MTX and Prednisone I assume he might freak over that too.)
The Dr visit did not produce anything productive. As I had said before much of the tenderness has gone away along with all of the swelling, redness, and warmth. The Dr did a breast exam (yuck! MALE DR alert) and said that I was OK for the "watch and wait" option. If I still have a sore spot in a month I go in for a mamogram.
I mentioned that I have this cold, but since the rest of the family also has had a cold this week it's to be expected. Since I am already coughing up some of the crap that was sitting on me yesterday- I think I'll be OK. I feel more sore- probably because I am laying around.
Going to bed now- I've been sleeping so much the last 3 days.
Christina, what are we going to do with you?
I don't know whether to laugh or cry about the way you are dealing with this.
You are such a card!!
I do hope all goes well. It is so good it miraculously went away. Shame there is that spot though. We want to see it completely gone, not an iota by the March 20
Keep us posted
I will keep it brief- my 2 previous attempts got chewed up on ciber space.
It is actually a vega machine, you can read about it on:
Deep Water Aerobics is a great way to exercise and because you wear bouyancy belts it is OK for non swimmers. Catch a sample of the action on:
I clicked on this site and couldn't see the video. I then tried physically typing in the above address( I know it's an effort but hey it's worth it)

Did you know that you can use the vega from a saliva sample. I can get 100 allegies done for under $100
By the way, it wasn't me in the water video LOL.
My instructor, Margaret is way up there with knowing the ins and outs of Deep Water.
Here is a list of her things your should keep in mind to get the best:
Don't push yourself, stop if there is pain(we know to ignore this other wise we would do nothing, hee hee)
Do it slow to start and build up speed over the weeks
Start with 20min, 3x week and increase to 45mins
Never point your toes(as they do in the video) to avoid cramps
Think of posture all the time- Hips forward, shoulders back, stomach to the backbone, buttocks tight, pelvic floor up tight(oops that's gone)
I should really get back into it
All the best
