Gearing up for Chemo #5

Mysteries which I hope will be solved at my pre-chemo#5 oncology appointment today (if we get to see our oncologist, that is. Last time it was a surrogate):

  • Can I avoid the full week of Taxotere-induced agony this round? If so, how?
  • What’s with the sunken, bright read hollows under each of my eyes?
  • Is my 105 year old skin here to stay? (it’s not just the skin surface, it seems to be a complete change to whatever used to be under my skin — yikes!)
  • What’s her opinion of my long-debated bilateral mastectomy?
  • When does radiation start? And is it still within walking distance of our place? (I hope, I hope)
  • Can I ask now about plans for my ovaries? (last time she said it was too early to ask)

Stay tuned…
