Final Herceptin Treatment Tomorrow!

Posted by on Jan 30, 2013 in Emotional, Treatment | 0 comments

Tomorrow is my final Herceptin treatment – after a year of going every three weeks!

It is a strange feeling, knowing that it will FINALLY be over – but also having that feeling of….oh my god! It’s over – now what??

New Beginnings - Breast Cancer

I have gone for 4 chemo treatments and then 19 of the Herceptin treatments.

It has become a part of my life, knowing that every 3 weeks, I need to get someone to come and take the girls to school because I have to leave at 7:30 to be there for the doctor.

I have seen my doctor and my nurses in the chemo unit every 3 weeks without fail.

And now – I won’t be!

I will admit that while I am so happy to be done, I am feeling a bit of anxiety about my treatment being over.

At least while I was still going, I knew I was still working at keeping the cancer away. But now….

And, I will kind of miss seeing my nurses, sitting down there chatting with them while I have my treatment. I always knew that they would find out anything I needed to know about any scans I needed, or results I was waiting for…..they have just always kept me in check.

So, I will go tomorrow and find out what the next step is for me. I will need to get my port removed. And, the hysterectomy is still up in the air.

This chapter of my cancer journey is over – and it will be a day full of mixed emotions for me, I am sure.  But – I will look forward to many new beginnings that this past year has given me:-)
