It did feel weird going into the Blood and Cancer Centre. Already, it felt like this was the past and I almost couldn’t quite remember how to get there. In the waiting room, I distracted myself with reading materials and had to wait for about half an hour before I was seen.
A Nurse called my name and took me over to be weighed. I had lost four kg since I was there last time (great). In the consulting room, I went over my questions and queries. But really, I didn’t have much to ask.
When Kate arrived, I told her that my migraines and headaches had reduced significantly from about Week 4 after the last Herceptin. She thought that was interesting and great, and congratulated me on my weight loss. I have 3kg to go to get back to pre-bc weight . Kate had referred me to a dietician at the hospital but in six months, they had not contacted me. I guess I don’t need to see the dietician.
Kate didn’t examine me as I don’t have any issues to report. She told me that I didn’t need to see her again unless I needed to. My next follow up appointment is with my breast surgeon in March 2013 and I have a mammogram scheduled for January.
So the appointment was delightfully uneventful. And I guess I am not on three month follow up appointments anymore. It will be five months until I see Dr Mouat. However, I have a follow up with my plastic surgeon in ten days. It will be good to see her and double check that everything is fine.
Onwards and upwards with life.
