Yesterday was a big day for me, met with my breast surgeon and had my midway point MRI. I had a great visit with my breast surgeon and received some great advice on radiation oncologist and different ways to help with my chemo struggles. I heart her. My MRI was to to determine if the chemo was working, basically to see if the tumor had shrunk and what the lymph nodes looked like. I went in expecting good news because I could no longer feel the tumor or the swollen lymph nodes. When my oncology office called with the news I was so EXCITED, tumor had shrunk. Not only had the 2cm tumor shirk to around 9mm but the lymph nodes looked normal. Best. News. Ever. The nurse practitioner also said that we could talk to the doctor about reducing/changing my chemotherapy on Tuesday too. That was exactly what I wanted to hear.
