ALL DONE!!! 🙌

All done chemo!! I know this seems sudden as I originally had 12 chemo treatments to complete but after speaking to my doctor about my anxiety over having to go to the hospital so often during this pandemic she agreed that I could stop my chemo this week after my 11th treatment. She is sure this will not affect any chance of recurrence. I will be scheduled for follow up scans in 4 to 6 weeks to finalize everything and i’m sure I will be needing to go for scans every few months for a few years at least. I will know more about my post chemo plans after my next set of scans.

This week has been very emotional to say the least. It still does not seem real that chemo is over and honestly I still can’t believe everything I have been through to get here. It is going to take quite some time for me to get back to my normal, healthy, strong self but I am SO ready to get started on the path to recovery. It’s very overwhelming to think about every detail of myself that I have lost in the last year, but I know I have also gained a lot of mental strength because of it.

I look forward to walking up stairs and not getting winded ..

I look forward to getting my strength up enough to workout again …

I look forward to losing the weight I gained from medication and self sabotage …

I look forward to less digestive issues …

I look forward to going to the bathroom regularly lol …

I look forward to not having to take a million meds daily …

I look forward to getting my taste back on a regular basis …

I look forward to my nails getting stronger and growing normally again..

I look forward to growing my hair back …

I look forward to my eyebrows hopefully fully returning …

I look forward to my lashes growing fuller …

The list goes on and on in regards to how my life changed since my diagnosis/chemo …

I have LOTS to look forward to but I know it’s not going to be an easy path. Post cancer/chemo is probably going to be even more difficult. I have done a lot of reading about how people with cancer struggle even more post treatment with feeling lost or wanting to jump back into your old self when its just not possible yet feeling defeated constantly.

I can easily say I am as excited as I am scared for the next chapter I have to get through. I will keep up with my blog post chemo to keep you all in the loop! 💗
