Thought I would stop in and say Hi! Yep, it's check up time for me again and of course WebMD can't be far from the thoughts when going to the doc and for tests. So far the bone scan says no metastases and most of the blood work is good. Ify stuff is liver enzymes are up, but taking Lipitor for cholesterol caused that last year, so since they had me quit taking it the enzymes went down - but now they are up again and my cholesterol is also up. My guts are kinda in a mess, but going for colonoscopy on May 13. So it is high fiber diet for me and Miralax every day. Now you really wanted to know that, didn't you?
OMGosh!!! Most of you probably don't even know me. I found WebMD 13 years ago after I had already had my mastectomy, been started on Tamoxifen and was told I had to make the decision whether to have chemo or not - which I decided to not have the chemo. Looking back 13 years though, I guess it was a good decision. So far tests are saying I'm still clear of the bc. I have my mammo on Monday.
Rachael, I was so glad to see your name and those of others I recognized, but I did not recognize this site!!!! I see they just keep on and keep on changing things up! I always wished they had kept the discussion board like it was the very first time I got on here. It was sooo very simple. Rachael, I see you still have the Pinkie Bus going and wow, it even has it's name in the headline for F2F. Too cool!!! I've already been for a couple of tests and a couple of doc visits, but would love to catch a ride on Monday for that dreaded mammo.
I will check back in sooner than this next time and hope everyone is feeling good. My prayers are with you all, all the time. Take care and God bless.
