Oncology Follow-Up
Today marked my first three-month follow-up appointment with my oncologist. The news couldn't be better. My blood work was all fine (including the tumor markers), my post-chemo side-effects were minimal, and my progress is good! All indications continue to point in the direction of post-menopausal. We will retest in three months for verification. Sometimes it takes a while for things to kick in again after treatment. If I am indeed post-menopausal, we will start aromatase inhibitors at that time. If I return to a pre-menopausal state, we will begin Tamoxifen at that time. Either way, there is one more stage in the treatment to continue to keep me cancer free.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
