Well... I had a doctor's appointment on Monday. It was time for me to get my monthly shot (a bone strengthening medication) and some labs done.
I don't know why, but I didn't ask my husband to go with me. Probably because I went for the shot alone the first time. This time, though, I met with the oncologist and he did a quick exam.
I'd been on tamoxifen for 35 days (38 days today). I'm going to be honest, I was hoping for something. But so far, there is no shrinkage - I was/am very disappointed. Shrinkage after 5 weeks is a lot to ask though, so we're hanging in there.
I'm scheduled for an ultrasound and mammogram at the end of this month. That will better show results (if any).
The great thing is I have a lot of options. Some are better than others, but they are options - a privilege not afforded by everyone.
