Final Round of R-CHOP with the great staff of GHCI!
So it is now Day 3 post last round of chemotherapy. As has been the case with the last few rounds, I've spent most of the last few days sleeping and semi-watching dvds. Side effects seem to be the same, no better, no worse. More hot flashes but I have a feeling I may just have to get used to those.
I wish I had more energy for a nice long post but maybe in the next few days I will get there. I did want to update you all on my post treatment game plan.
On December 30th, I will be having CT Scans of all the areas where there was cancer: Neck, Chest and Abdomen. Plus, my oncologist wants a post treatment baseline mammogram of the breast. I will do a follow up with him middle of January and if blood work, scans and mammogram all look good, we will just do blood work every 3 months and PET Scans every 6 months for the first 2 years. He wants me to keep the port in for at least the first 6 months and I told him “I love that thing and I have no problem leaving it as long as possible” .
