Well I got a surprise when I went to the radiation treatment on friday! When I got there they told me that Dr. Neilson wanted to see me as there was a change in the radiation treatment prescription.. I thought, "oh no They are going to extend it again." So as I waited in the doctors office I just prayed and said
"Ok Lord only you know what I need, and If I need to go Longer then I'm ok with that. I trust you to know exactly what I need and you have given Dr. Neilson the wisdom to take care of me"
So then Dr. Neilson came in and started by saying,
"Today will be your last treatment."
"So you mean, I'm done"
Dr. Neilson replied,
"Yes, I have looked at your charts and after speaking with a few of my colleagues, I think that the treatments you have had is good enough. There is no clear data to say you having more treatment than you have gotten will have any effect."
She then said I needed to come back in a month for a followup appointment and said that I needed follow up with Dr. Perry.
Can you believe it at the End of April it will be 6 months sinc emy surgery??? Time has flown by alot faster than I thought it would. Dr. Nielson also said that I should wait for 3 months to schedule a Mamogram to allow tissue and skin time to heal. The skin is VERY Dark. The Therapist, nurses and Doctor all commented that My skin did very well with the treatments. Apparently it does get worse for those who are lighter complected. I am thankful All I had was a little fatigue and soreness. So Pray that My energy level bumps up quickly, so I can get back into the swing of things!
Prayerfully, I am completely finished with ever getting radiation. And I do appreciate all of your prayers! God has given me strength an endurance and your prayers have been a great source of peace for me!
"Let us then approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need."
