Woo Hoo, it’s gone, the drain that is. My charm and wit finally worked and my doctor could no longer deny my request. I am drain-free and it makes a world of difference. Now begins the adjustments to my new body shape. I didn’t think about how the absence of the drain would make me realize how different by body is. I continue to remind myself this is only temporary and continue to make plans for when this is all done which may come sooner than I originally thought. I am prepared for the rough road ahead with radiation and chemo at the same time but just think how much sooner I can move on. I return to the doctors on Tuesday and it looks like I will be getting started in radiation quickly and then add the chemo in a couple weeks. These treatments alone are tough and together I’m prepared to have to fight the good fight.
