The Results Are In.

Just thought I would let you all that are still around that my mammogram results came in yesterday and everything looked normal.  I wasn't really worried but still waiting for cancer screening results are nerve-wracking.  Apparently, there has been no change since last year and I am good to continue with my estrogen.  Thank goodness…

Check your Boobies

I have a mammogram scheduled for tomorrow morning so I thought I would post an update as to how I'm doing.  Which is well thank you.  I'm struggling with my weight again and even hit the 300 on the scale.  That was a bit smack in the face and forced me to get serious about losing…

One Year Down…

...Four more to go until the oncology department in Iowa City releases me from their care.  Today is the one year anniversary of my Hysterectomy, one year without a uterus or my ovaries.  I have to say I only miss the ovaries but significantly less since I started taking estrogen. So how do I feel…

I’m scared.

Of my upcoming colonoscopy. Not of the procedure, although I know prep isn't going to be pleasant, but of the possibility that I might have cancer.  A second cancer that is.  I've noticed a change in my bowel habits and tried to chock that up to my adjusting to a new hormone normal but there…

Five months without a uterus

And things are going pretty good all things considered. I do have my first three-month appointment on July 3rd and need to start making a list of issues I want to talk to them about. Menopause:  My hot flashes are getting better most of the month but seem to be condensing their strength and frequency to…

What a difference a year makes

Last night I was scrolling back through my calendar.  It is on google now and I use it to record everything; health, family, work, blog, pets, bills.  Anything I think is important or even mildly relevant I record for prosperity.  One year ago this week I was just finishing up my trip to Chicago to…

Checking in.

Hello everyone that is still following this blog.  [listens for chirps...] Thought I would take a moment and check in to let you know how post-hysterectomy life is going.  So far pretty good I think.  I still have some ups and downs.  This week after five days of exercising for five days in a row…

So…

...Did you think I disappeared? I haven't  still recovering at home with 12 days left before my follow-up appointment on March 1st.  Haven't shared anything because there isn't much to share.  I don't think I am going to learn the staging of my cancer before my appointment because I've heard nothing from Iowa City.  That's…

6 Days Pre-Op

I feel like I've been waiting forever... When I think about the fact that I was diagnosed just diagnosed with cancer on December 19, 2016 it feels so difficult to believe.  It was just a month ago tomorrow actually.  Wow.  Only one month when it feels like ages.  I must say again my diagnosis and…

8 Days Pre-Op: Worries

Good Morning. I thought I should give you all an update since I am only eight days before surgery.  I have begun to worry about money.  The fact that I won't be making any while I'm recovering and that even though I have insurance this surgery is going to cost us quite a bit.  Last…
