-Cheryl- Posted October 26, 2003 Share Posted October 26, 2003 Hello Folks, I thought I would post just to update everyone on my recovery from surgery. I went back to work almost 2 weeks ago so I would not lose my job and insurance. I also walk a mile daily. My breathing is good, but I do have a tickle in my lung which makes me dry cough when I breath deep. Jack says that I don't do it at night when I sleep. The doctor says that it is normal given all the treatment I have been through, but that it should get better. My surgeon is very positive about my recovery. He and my onc don't think I need post chemo follow up. My pulmonologist said that I don't need to see him unless something comes up. I will go for a CAT scan on the 31st and my onc will read it that day at my appt.. I still have plenty of aches and pains from the surgery and am anemcic, but overall feeling good. I worry still about the supraclavicular node which showed some uptake during my first PET scan, but hope that the chemo took care of it. Makes me want chemo just as a precaution. Anyone have some kowledge of postop chemo and it's benefits, despite preopt chemo? My doctors think I have been through enough and need to heal. Hey, and I sure would hate to lose my dark, curley hair sprouting up! Did anyone elses hair come back different than their original hair? Plus, I heard that you may not lose your hair again with continued chemo- anyone experience this? I am still mouring the loss of Apache, but I got another horse. She is also a Tennessee Walker and very gentle. I probably won't ride her for a while due to my surgery, but I am enjoying just grooming and getting to know her. She is very gentle. My 4 year old neice wants to ride my stallion. I told her "Honey, he is not broke yet." She then replied, "Well, why don't you fix him?" I tell you what I am about to get him fixed! Ha! He will not leave my new mare alone! Take care my friends and God Bless, Cheryl Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
