Today I had to be at the hospital bright and early (and nobody is very bright at 5am - except my mother!) for my surgery. Since my BRCA+ status puts me at a higher risk for ovarian cancer and tamoxifen can cause uterine issues, I'm having some more female parts removed. The one big downfall is being thrown into menopause at age 41... but I've been in "chemopause" since September anyway. I already have the fatigue, hot flashes and mood swings.... I'll just have to work hard to avoid weight gain and do what I can to keep my bones healthy. All in a day's work when you're kicking cancer's ass!
Throw back Thursday...this was a MUCH happier hospital visit 8+ years ago:
