Yesterday I had my follow up with my surgeon Dr. Melnich. He was very pleased with how everything was healing and impressed with the plastic surgeon’s work. The word “wow” was used. It was a positive appointment and I thanked him for taking care of me through this journey and making things happen especially arranging for last minute biopsies. His nurse Lisa walked us out and gave us hugs. It’s impressive to work with this team. Steve and I often described Lisa as an angel and Steve wondered if she could adopt us.
From there I went to cardiology for my 3 month echocardiogram. The oncology nurse called with the results yesterday afternoon and my heart is unchanged. In a small percentage of patients the Herceptin (I receive every 3 weeks) can damage the pumping function of the heart.
So next week it’s appointments with Dr Stella and Herceptin treatment on Monday. On Wednesday I follow up with my plastic surgeon Dr Michelotti and meet the newest addition to my team Dr. Bethany Anderson, Radiology Oncologist.
I am healing and moving forward! Thanks for all your support!
