My family took me out to celebrate my completion of 1-year-long breast cancer IV treatments: Herceptin and Perjeta treatments!
I just came back from my bi-annual breast check up and no indication of breast cancer. (I hope I will keep reporting this good news every 6 months. If recurrence happens, it has it’s peak in 2 to 3 years after the diagnosis. )
I long waited for this day to come: my last injection treatment for my breast cancer is all done today! No more “chemo unit” visit every three weeks. I did it! (I did the chemotherapy from August to November, 2014. I had been on “targeted therapy” since then. The targeted therapy, the side effects are very minor. What I finish today is the targeted therapy.)
FIFA 2015 Women’s World Cup the final match: US vs Japan. My husband and son were on US side, but I was on Japan side to watch the game. I did not expect any team would make 2 goals in the first 5 minutes at the final, but US did. The team USA was very strong!
The past Tuesday, US won the semi-final Women’s World Cup Soccer against Germany at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. We were there to support the team USA.
Today, I mark the first anniversary of my breast cancer removal. I made it!!! I felt like ROAR, (like Katy Perry)! I am surviving. Coco Rocha’s Study of Pose book had a great pose for that: #535.
I am super excited to have my period back yesterday after the breast cancer treatments. I was told that chemotherapy could damage my totally healthy ovaries and could strip away my period FOREVER (at the age 36). I welcome back my period with joy today!
Teaching has been over awhile ago, but my treatments go on. I visited my plastic surgeon today, 3 weeks after the nipple reconstruction procedure. (I visited him last week, too.)
It has been 6 months since my last chemotherapy. I have been craving food like crazy since then. Constantly fulfilling my appetite as much as I could. I am … finally content.
At my post nipple reconstruction surgery visit of my doctor, I received an A+ nipple from the doctor. He took off my dressing and told me; “It’s an A+ nipple!”
