Hi and Thanks to ALL of you for your replies and kind words of hope. It has helped me, to realize I do have some where I can go to talk to some one who has been where I am. Even my daughter posted. She worries about me, since she has seen me suffer with Crohns for so many years.
I am scheduled to have a port done Fri. Have had them done before from having Crohns, since I only have one vein that works any more. My chemo treatment is going to be Adriamycin, Cytoxan, Taxol, and Herceptin. Then radiation. All this over a years time. However, you all have made me less anxious about it. My biggest concern was the throwing up,since I have done so much of that w/Crohns. I have an ileostomy as well, and being sick to the point of throwing up is very painful for me, as it puts so much pressure on the gut. I do take phenergan for this though.
Since being diagnosed with bc, docs have literally run me to death, with test and so on, to prepare me for the surgery, and now the chemo. My surg was done on Sept.19th, so you can see how fast it is happening. I feel sometimes that i don't even have time to think. I have already had my hair cut shorter, and bought me a Fedora, LOL. It looks terrible, but I will adjust. I will also check out the wig. I have always kept the verse from the Bible in my head, that God won't put more upon us than we can take, and have gotten thru many things. Just keep me in your prayers, as I will all of you. Thanks again, and God Bless. Hugs to you all Carol
