Day 325 in my journey to Mickey
Today’s plan was to go back for a post-op checkup. I had to have my first internal pelvic check since my hysterectomy. Man! I hate those things! It was not at all painful, but you just feel so violated when it’s over. Don’t get me wrong; my doctor is great. She is very gentle and has wonderful bedside manner. But there is just no way to be truly relaxed when you have a speculum inserted. Argh! Anyway everything looks pretty good, I’m told. Now I have to go back every 3 months for the next two years. Then I have to go every 6 months for the following three years. Then if all is well after five years, they say I am healed.
However, there were some odd irregularities in my cancer cells, so my oncologist wants me to see a genetics specialist to have some tests done. Man! I don’t think I can do it right now. I’m still to worn out, still too beat up. I need some time away. Maybe after I retire at the end of this year, I’ll go. I just can’t face more medical stuff right now.
So that’s what I did today to be a healthier me for our trip to Florida. Meet you at the Kingdom!
