yeah  As I was laying on the cart waiting for the radioactive sugar to circulate, I saw you guys standing in the doorway: Joyce, Jo-Ann,MK,Tavish and Deb. You don't know how glad I was to see you all. I told my surgeon about you too. Pink feathers were flying in her office too.
I still don't know about the scan. It took two hours and by then I was late for the doctor. It was only 1/2 hour after the scan so this time she didn't have the results ready. She told me I should be seeing an Onc. I told her she was my Onc. but I know I have to see a medical Onc. too. We made plans for whenever. I will still see my Barnes onc and get chemo in Champaign, Il. which is one hour from here. In the new Mamm magazine, there is an article about vaccines. A new one is being developed at Siteman Cancer Center and Washington University, which is where I go for treatments. I asked her about the vaccines and she said that it should be ready in about a year and if I have the protein I will get it first, is what she said. There are a lot being developed so we should be able to start getting them.
I still don't feel very good about it, but she felt my breast and there was nothing. She said the other side is as hard as a rock and there is no way to feel anything.
Well, I suppose she will call tomorrow. I'll call that other onc for an appointment. She was very happy that my chol is 195 this year instead of 336. She was afraid that I would drop dead outside her door last year and ruin all of our progress.
Love to all, Di

Dang it, Di, I missed the boat (er, plane) again. I wish I had known, I would have been first in line to board. I'm still catching up from my trip. Please keep us updated on your progress. Whew! Love those statins. I speak for us all when I say how happy we all are that you're still around to brighten our days.

L&H,
Rita

Let us know as soon as you find out the results. You mentioned chemo, you don't have to have chemo again do you? I am confused. I sure hope and pray not. Hugs MK

Di: Glad that you survived the day! Barnes is such a big facility but I have a friend from here that had her mast, reconstruction, chemo and radiation all at Barnes. She has nothing but great things to say about all of the staff.

I am confused also. Don't you see a med onco on a regular basis for checkups? Also, what are you not feeling comfortable w/ regarding your rad onco statement about your breast? If you have a gut feeling that there is something wrong, then have someone else check it.

Hugs...Deb

Well, I sure confused a lot of people. Thank you to all for posting. I knew I shouldn't have posted last night when I was so tired.
No, I don't know of anything wrong yet. They still haven't called which doesn't seem good. There was also a girl in nuclear med that injected me when I left and I thought she looked kind of sad. Kind of weird, huh? No, I don't feel like there is anything wrong with the doctor's assessment of my breast. I would follow her anywhere. She is the best surgical oncologist in this world. She was able to cut out my 5 cm. tumor when the others were telling me no. She is the only onc that ever wanted to do scans. So, why bother with others when she is doing them on a regular basis. She once said that she was going to look for it until she found it. So far, I've been very blessed. Even when they emptied my chest cavity they found no cancer cells. ( For those new, that was for gangrene surgery for severe radiation damage due to being double radiated. You do not have to worry about that. Most peole are never double radiated.)
I can't ask Steve to drive me to Barnes every week for chemo( If and when it's needed) sorry for the confusion, MK.She said that I could come to Barnes for scans and see my onc there every 3 months or so and be treated my a medical onc near here so I was suppossed to call and set it up.
I'll try to not confuse anyone the next time. Lot of love, Di

Well am I glad I was not here to read that. You really had me going but since I did not read it until you had clarified it, I got my questions answered without having to ask. Sending hugs. Joyce
