Dr See was happy with how my skin has coped with radiotherapy. I have no visible signs of radio on my boob at all. TMI I know lol. My skin looks great. It really doesn't get much better than that. My scar has healed beyond all my expectations.
After working seven days straight I was feeling sore. Dr See wasn't overly happy about me overdoing things. According to the doc I am quite swollen still. I really didn't think I was but the bra marks are tell tale signs on one side. I feel swollen below my breast on my ribs. Actually feel like someone has hit me with a stick lol. I am working tomorrow night and one shift next week. Taking it easy for a bit.
Dr See was really happy with how I have coped with radiotherapy. I will go back in August for a check up adn then due to having a history of Lupus I will have to see him for another 18 months. He told me I am NORMAL. What a lovely thing to hear. I am the standard patient.
Whilst I was waiting in the waiting room. As you do lol. The social worker came up to me and told me they had lost all my paperwork to claim my fuel for the trip to and fro to radio. So it all had to be filled out again. mmmm fun NOT. Not that I stand a chance to get a rebate due to being 2kms out.
After radio I caught up with my chemo buddy Helen. We had a lovely cuppa and lunch together. Helen is looking so good. She can't believe I am going hat less. She is still wearing a scarf. It's been over a month now since I ditched the hats. I am amazed at how fast my hair is growing back (had a lady at work the other day hug me and congratulate me for doing the big shave lol. had to explain I did the real thing). My hair is still a little thin on top but thicker on the sides and back, whereas Helen's is thick on top and thin on the sides and back. I have no real curls so far, just a few kinks at the back. I really don't think my hair will be curly. Was hoping for a bit of a wave. Still a very strange mousy brown colour.
Helen had a bit of bad news. Another chemo buddy Monique has been told they can't do anymore for her. The third buddy in a few weeks. Truly sucks doesn't it. It is so unfair. I feel so guilty that I am ok for now and they're not.
