Hey y’all! It’s been a while! I have a couple updates for you.
First of all it’s been one month today since my surgery! Time is flying. Feeling great!
Last Friday I went to get my hair colored for the first time since around Thanksgiving. When I went to pay for it my friend told me someone already had. Literally wanted to cry. Happy tears that is. I just feel so lucky with all the love I have gotten so far.
Last week I had my first tissue expander fill. It sounds crazy but it actually is pretty cool! Here is what they use to fill the expanders.
Basically they take a needle and insert it in your skin (not as painful as it sounds) into the tissue expander and use saline and fill the expander up. It’s a fast process. And my girl at Dr Unger’s office rocks. So no pain at all.
Today I went in and had the last fill. So now I’ll be rocking these expanders for about a year. Since I’m having radiation after chemo they want me to wait 6 months after radiation to have the surgery where they will replace the expander with a silicone implant.
Today I also had an echo of my heart to make sure it’s healthy enough for chemo. They told me it was perfectly healthy. Little victories y’all! I have been having some severe “Scanxiety”.
I meet with my oncologist on Thursday and should have a plan to get a port put in for chemo and a plan on when to start the chemo.
Honestly I’m ready to start it so I can get these next few months behind me.
Just wanted to update on the little bit of info I have right now.
I’m ready for this! Bring. It. On. 💪🏻
