My New Annoyance
So I think I briefly mentioned my newest problem, an ingrown hair on my leg that has turned into the size of a golfball. I'm on antibiotics for it, but it's not doing anything, and I'm in major pain, including walking with a limp to avoid hitting it....so I called my onc and told her all of the drama, how it's getting bigger and more painful as the days go on, so I'm going into surgery TWICE this week! Tomorrow I go in to get this lovely drained and cut off or whatever, then Friday is port removal - funtastic! And of course, I tried to get them both done on the same day, but no dice! This thing on my leg is soo painful, it keeps me from doing anything, so I can't wait for it to be sliced and diced!

My chemo countdown was completed on June 14, 2007.
I've still got some spots on my chest, but have been it's just thymic rebound. On October 25, 2007 I was told that I'm officially in Remission.
My next scans are scheduled for NEVER! I'm done with scans! Only on the yearly blood work program!
Suck it cancer!
