Well, I am very happy to say the swelling in my axillary area has finally gone down. I did my exercise and maintained my full range of motion to my arm.
Joyce, that was a very cute posting about the duck and very meaningful. Thanks I enjoyed it. Sorry you had such a hard time posting the other day I really don't know why that happened.
JuJu, sounds like we are close to the same schedule with treatment but was very surprise to hear you took 12 treatments of taxol? I only had 4 treatments of taxol and 4 treatments of A/C. How many radiation tx's will you have? I looked on the roll call to see if I could find out more about your dx and see how close we were to treatments but was unable to find it.
Jean, your advise about radiation tx was very helpful. I have thought about it and think I will have them use the ink instead of the tatooing. Not sure I want permanent markings on my chest, is there any reason later on I would regret not using the tatoo (that I am not aware of)? Not really looking forward to the tx's but know once I get them done, all my treatments will be over and hopefully I can look forward to being cancer free. Keep your fingers crossed for me!
I am getting fine hair back now but not much and its been a little over a month since my last treatment does anyone have any idea when the hair starts to come back? I enjoy reading the messages on this forum and have learned a lot already. There were so many good responses. Thanks..... Gonna jet ............skeeter1
