Well, the treatment process has started. It's been a long process to get surgical clearances and what-have-you. My port was installed/embedded on Tuesday, and I will start chemo on Wednesday. Oh the joy! Not looking forward to it, but it's better than letting the cancer kill me. What would we do without Nurse Navigators? So many appointments and doctors, it's hard to keep it all straight. My advice to patients: Get a good planner/datebook.
