Good news: I had my last full-breast radiation today; tomorrow I get the first of 8 that are targeted to the original lump. Then I'll be done! I'm hoping my skin and my energy can slowly start rebounding with the reduced radiation.* Last night I was in bed at 7 and slept all night -- and I wanted to stay in bed longer. So I'm ready to see my energy return.
Not quite as good news: my latest mugascan showed more heart damage (chemo/radiation) which could be permanent or could be temporary -- either way, I couldn't get my herceptin today. Another mugascan in three weeks will hopefully show improvement and I'll be able to resume herceptin. Please keep your fingers crossed for me.
Meanwhile, I think I hear a pillow calling my name :)
Keep moving forward!
*edited to add: it's actually not reduced radiation -- it's all concentrated in a smaller area. I'll still be getting full doses, so fatigue relief is still a little ways away!
