A new world’s record for doctor’s visits in a week.
Or at least it feels like a world’s record to me. I’m starting radiation on my spine today to get rid of that one spot. That will be daily for eleven days, so five doctor visits this week for that. I’m also seeing the radiation oncologist separately and seeing the following additional doctors: medical oncologist, thoracic surgeon, and naturopath. I might also go see the dermatologist this week, but maybe I’ll put that off. Anyway, if I count that right, that makes a minimum of NINE doctors this week. I’m going to try to push them all to the afternoons so I have my mornings free.
I will be synthesizing all the information from these various people on Thursday afternoon with the medical oncologist. He’ll have the latest from the cancer doctor conference by then and we’ll plan next steps.
Other than that, I’m feeling fairly good but I’m still tiring easily. After only three weeks out from chemo, that’s not too bad.
Pray for wisdom for next steps.
And, finally, so I can keep beating my dead horse, consider the following if you plan to make donations for cancer research: http://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/190508.php. This is quite a bit of the reason why we’re making up my treatment plan as we go. Nobody has the money to study people like me. We’re more-or-less written off in the research world as already dead, so why bother?
