    I just finished my last treatment of Herceptin! Oh Happy Day!!! I'm having my port removed Monday and will celebrating with friends and family with a party on Halloween weekend!. My journey was 13 months, 2 weeks and 4 days. Reconstruction will be done in December so I can start the new year with a clean slate. I'm planning a tropical vacation in March to rest, relax and celebrate my life. I can't stop smiling today:)

    Hi Jennifer,
    I was remembering what my surgeon told me. He said I had to heal from my port removal operation, before I could have my other surgery. It's a major operation, aren't you having it done in the hospital? Anyway, I guess December is long enough away for it to heal.( but it should be the end of Dec.) Call Mon., and make sure you tell your plastic surgeon, you had your port removed Oct. 17th. A lot of times all three of my doctors weren't on the same page. I kept track of all of them, and made sure each one knew what the other was doing. It's a shame I had to do that, but I'd rather have been safe, then sorry. Good luck and God Bless!

    My port is coming out on 11/2 and it's being done in the surgeon's office with just local anesthetic. It's definitely not a major operation in my case.

    I agree that it's difficult to keep all of one's doctors on the same page. I accept that responsibility as it is my body.
