It was a year ago this past April 15th. that my radiation treatments were finished. Then I had to see the doctor every three months, while also seeing my oncologist every three months. Personally I thought this was rather silly, since both doctors were doing the same examine except the oncologist was doing blood work.
Today was a six month check up with the radiologist, and I once again reminded her I am seeing the oncologist every three months, so she agreed it is rather foolish to have two doctors doing basically the same thing. So I no longer have to see her unless I have a problem or question. She did tell me if the thickness at the incision site bothered me she could send me to a physical therapist, why was my question. No it doesn't bother me and it will eventually get softer. It won't be two years until this coming December that I had the lumpectomy. So that's one less doctor I will be seeing. THANK GOODNESS.
We left a little early so I could stop by and pick up my new driver's license. At least this time my eyes are open. But in five years I do look a lot older and more gray hair. I was surprised, I didn't realize it now cost $24.00 for that little license you carry in a wallet. But I'm set for five more years. Who knows maybe by then I won't need to get another, since I may not be driving. But I would have to live someplace where I could either take a taxi or bus.
We left here around 12:45, got home at 3:45. But I did set back in the examining room for an hour, and it was ice cold in there. Never have understood why you have to wait for an hour in the examining room if the appointments have been scheduled properly.
Hope everyone has a great evening and a wonderful week-end.
