Monday February 27, 2012

I have been rocking and rolling along since the New Year. I have absolutely no complaints, which is why I haven't blogged in awhile.

I recovered from my complete hysterectomy without complications (Thank you God) and was released, no problem. I can start working out again, and have started my new post-menopausal pill, Arimidex. After being on it for a little bit I noticed my blood pressure is staying elevated so we are keeping an eye on that.

I am still seeing my Oncologist every 3 months but am now only seeing my Plastic Surgeon every 6 months. Speaking of Plastic Surgeons, I asked mine to send me my before and after pictures... HOLY COW I cannot believe I ever looked like that before. I thought my original boobs were flat, but after having Poncho and Lefty all this time, they were really pancakes! Jamey and I had a good little laugh and then I put the pictures up. Who am I going to show them to? :-)

Last week I was asked to talk to two different women that were recently diagnosed with breast cancer. Every story is different and every outcome and attitude are different. I know I didn't want to talk to anyone when I was first diagnosed, only because I was already getting a 1,000 opinions thrown at me every day, and since every diagnosis is different, my story won't necessarily relate to every one elses, but if I can help someone recently diagnosed in ANY way, I definitely will! If any of you hear of anyone diagnosed, please don't hesitate to send them to this blog. Maybe reading this will help, you never know.

Until next time!
