Posted on November 17, 2017Hi everyone! The nightmare of the radiation trial is pretty much behind me. Had my herceptin infusion last week and a layer of skin came off with the port seal plastic the nurse used to remind me my irradiated skin won't be normal for a few more months! Waiting to go in for another bone scan and just had a full body CT, should find out results next week.

Posted on October 19, 2017Hi everyone! I am a little over halfway through my radiation schedule. I have to go daily until 11/3. I am already severely burned purple and starting to blister from under my arm around to the front of my chest. Thankfully my mom is coming in from IN to help me for the next two weeks. I had my biopsy on that new lump and thank God it was just fatty tissue.

Posted on September 28, 2017A week into radiation therapy, already tired and a little bit of a sore throat. We found a lump on the left side chest wall that needs to be investigated on Tue. Hopefully just an ultrasound and no need for biopsy. Doctor isn't worried, maybe just a seroma of fluid, but we are taking all precautions.
