21 November 2017

Doctor’s Day!! I see Prof. Dr. Breidenbach for my monthly check-up and the tumor shrank from 6mm to 4mm. That is great, but somehow I expected more, as after the three big chemo, it went from 2cm to 6mm and now I had another big one and two little ones…. well, at least it shrank!

Prof. Dr. Breidenbach has now decided that she needs to hollow out the breast during the operation and I will get a silicon implant. Unfortunately, she has to work on both breasts, as they are not the same otherwise. Never thought that I would have silicone breasts, but she said that it could later be fixed with a DIEP (deep inferior epigastric perforator, which runs through the abdomen) Flap, where they basically take your belly fat and muscles and put it into your breast. Hm… the belly is unfortunately one part of my body with little extra fat, but I shall see, if they can use my bum instead 😉 The good news is though that if they hollow out the breast, I might not have to undergo radiation!!! Fingers crossed!!!

The operation will be four to six weeks after chemo. Regarding my travel plans to Bali, I got the go to fly 14th February anyway! I will have to do some MRTs, CTs, etc. after the chemo and certainly do not want to leave before Karneval is over, but she promised to time all the checks and the operation to give me two weeks to recharge my batteries… yipehhh! She also said that after chemo I will be a different person than maybe in six months time and that I should look after myself.

The next subject was my throat. She thinks that it might be a fungus in my throat, which Frau Dietrich suggested already yesterday and sends me to an ENT doctor in the same clinic. Dr. Zenev checks it and lasers my throat. I have never heard of anything like that, but there are a lot of firsts for me lately anyway 😉 I shall have another laser session tomorrow!

my tongue is all blue after seeing Dr. Zenev, but apparently that will go away 😉
