Some of you have asked when chemo will start. The short answer is as soon as possible. Dr. Priya needs to have Dr. Ching sign off on not doing the lymph node biopsy prior to starting chemo. Then paperwork (insurance approvals and the like) need to be secured; I also need to attend a chemo education session with Dr. Priya’s nurse. I will also need a heart scan. One of the possible side effects of Herceptin is a loss of heart function, so Dr. Priya wants a baseline scan done before I start chemo.
I guess I’ll get my hair cut soon. Maybe I should go back to the asymmetric buzz cut with spikes that I had in the late 80’s. 🙂
