Met with plastic surgeon today to review reconstruction options. Have a reasonable plan in place. Next appt is with surgical oncologist on the 13th. Nervous about this step, but feel strongly that it is the right thing to do. Hoping not to get argument from my surgeon on that point…there is a fair amount of controversy over whether or not it is warranted for Stage 4 patients, but there are several published studies that it improves overall survival, so I am going to fight for it. I hope he is ready for it 🙂
Slowly on the mend from final treatment. Looking forward to allowing my body more recovery time. I need it.
