Halloween & Last Lupron
Hope everyone had a fun Halloween. The girls did socially distant trick-or-treating only to houses with outdoor setups.
After eating way too many Reeses cups, we woke up to a new month and a new time (daylight savings). The next thing on my calendar is my oophorectomy surgery on the 12th. Should be easy compared to flap reconstruction. The surgery is laparoscopic and takes about ten minutes, and I go home the same day. I get to do a mild bowel prep beforehand. I feel like you're not really over-the-hill until you do your first bowel prep. After this, I can officially say I'm in my forties!
Since I won't need ovary suppression medication anymore, that means October 14th was my last Lupron shot and hopefully the last time I ever sit in the infusion room. I finally got to say "Thanks! Have a nice life!" to my chemotherapy nurses. It's such a strange feeling to clear my calendar of those appointments. How will I keep track of the months without that shot-in-the-butt every 28 days?
