sometimes it makes you wonder.....

Oct 30, 2008 - 0 comments

Yesterday was a long day. Left home at 5:45 ate  breakfast at sonic. Went to see the drematologist at 8:30 am where i was treated for what is called a Seborrheic Keratoses which was on my neck.The dematologist said it was begine. It was sprayed with liquid nitrogen to freeze it. Then went to chemo where i had labs and then met with the dr. He told me that we were to schedule a meeting with the radiologist (Sp) as at the same clinic they had radation too.... Is it standard procedure to be seen by a radiologist after chemo? I remember that the surgon who we consulted with who did the mastectomy said (in a quick statement) that I was to have both chemo and radation.... after the surgery. Hubby was there too and heard that quick statement. We are set up to meet with the radilogist on the 20th of this month so will find out more then....
Chemo was delayed for about an hour as there was som problem in the lab with getting some of them processed. Our son and my friend went with me to chemo and they were nice enough to get me a nice fish sandwhich from Fudruckers. Chemo went well i slept a lot because they gave me benidryl (makes me tired) . In a few days my legs will be achey with some muscle cramps.
        Sometimes you wonder why it seems like they (the DRs)  don't want you to have a bigger picture of whats really going on. Kind of like putting  a jigsaw puzzle togeather??
