My upcoming b'day is on the 23rd. The "BIG SEVEN-O"!!!!! Can't believe it,..since I never really ever felt my age. Surely I'm not about to turn 70? When I have always told people my age,..they always get that shocked look and exclaim "No! That's not true,..you can't be" etc. etc. etc. Maybe 'cause I'm tiny,..and only 4 foot, 11 inch tall.
I see the surgeon Wednesday (on my daughter's b'day, BTW) to have a consultation to get my port out. I should be thrilled about getting the port out....but I guess I have mixed feelings about it. Like my Oncology nurse always says: "It wards off the evil spirits"
I'm two years out from DX,...but somehow I can't help waiting for the proverbial "other shoe to drop". Getting the port out, almost feels like cutting out a safety net, or something.
