It is hard to believe it has almost been a month since I was diagnosed with cancer. It feels like a year. So much has happened and yet I feel like I am just not accomplishing anything at all. I just want the surgery here and done with. Then move on to the next part of my life, recovery.
I received another appointment from the Mayo Clinic, this one is a couple weeks after surgery and is for occupational/physical therapy. I am glad that the Mayo is ahead of the game and looking at the long term and how to heal and grow with a part of me removed and another item in its place. Or maybe this is to help with the potential of Lymphedema, whichever it is, it is more than I have read other people receiving during their recover.
I read Angelina Jolie’s overview on her clinics website. The one piece I took away was the recommended vitamin regimen as well as the follow up to get the anesthesia out of the system. I will be printing it up and following it.
