Treatments are over

Welcome back to my blog peeps.

My radiation treatment came to an end today. Though it was supposed to be an eight daily session treatment, it got extended to another day because i was sent home to rest after X Ray showed some swelling on my right breast that threw off the pre set measurements the staff had drawn. Apart from that. - radiation treatment went well and quick.

So now what?

I have a couple of upcoming appointments with my team of doctors next few weeks and one more CT scan. After that I am not sure. What happens? Am I still a cancer patient or a former cancer patient? Do I still have cancer? Is my life finally back on track or will I forever be afraid of a recurrence? What do I do if I have a recurrence? Will I be able to handle it? Many questions, but no answers for it yet. I guess if I have to go, when its time - I will have to go.

Now that the treatments are finally over, I am now contemplating taking on tamoxifen in the long run. Handsome indian doctor (oncologist) did emphasize that I should take it to ensure the estrogen is suppressed in my body. I can go on a low estrogen diet, but knowing me, I don't think I can last that long on a diet. I am still thinking about it. I just wish I know someone who has taken tamoxifen and can advise me.
