IMG_5414.JPGWell I made it to my work Christmas party on Thursday night! It took me ages to do my hair though 😉.  It was lovely to go as I’d originally organised it all & a couple of months ago I didn’t think I’d be able to go.

I saw the oncologist last night who said he now can’t feel the lumps at all & that this was the best possible news at this stage. I still need to have 3 more cycles of chemo but they are going to reduce the quantity of drugs slightly as my white blood cells had dropped so low & I’ve been suffering with diarrhoea & they don’t want me having to end up staying in hospital if I et too I’ll. Nurse Dave is also going to have to give me an injection in my stomach the day after chemo to help boost my white blood cells so I shouldn’t feel so rough hopefully. I was also told whatever surgery I’ll need will be 4-7 weeks after the last chemo & then radiotherapy will be approximately 4 weeks after that. After the surgery I’ve also got to have 15 minute injections every 3 weeks into my thigh of Herceptin (the drug that controls the growth of cancer cells that contain high levels of the human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 and encourages the immune system to attack & kill the cancer cells). That’ll be fun! I’ve also got to take Tamoxifen (a drug to treat & prevent breast cancer & to reduce the risk of it coming back) for at least 10 years. Phew.

Im feeling much better again now. I just get tired very quickly.
