We're doing well, actually. He's still half-heartedly on his diet (seems he thinks potato chips are part of the OWL (ongoing weight loss) portion of the diet, and while he's not gaining weight back, he's not losing any, either. He attributes this to the "dieter's plateau" rather than his consumption of chips, but I suspect otherwise. Now that he's lived through the one surgery and done so well, he forgets that another may be in his future, and it will be much more difficult.
I'm in physical therapy, which helps alot, and I'll be going there 3 times a week for a few more weeks, I guess. Pain level has gotten much better, and so now we are working on strenthening. Joyce will tell you that that means "time out on the naughty ball," or something like that. But if I don't want to look and feel like a little old lady, then that's just what I have to do.
I'm so glad the rads are going okay. An hour trip each way for a half-hour in the hospital...I guess that's better than the other way around! How is the fatigue level??? I don't know...it's always so hard for doctors to understand how you can be so darned bone tired and yet, can't sleep. I think all oncologists should go through a few rounds of chemo just so they know what it feels like. Read an interesting article once about oncs who were diagnosed with cancer, and every one of them said, "my patients always told me, but I just really didn't understand 'til I went through it myself."
What will your herceptin schedule be like???
You take care of yourself. I'm not sure what a "sloggi"...is that like a camisole???
