Yesterday, I added another specialist to my alphabet of doctors. Dr. M. will be overseeing chemotherapy for me. After reviewing my medical history, she's determined that I'm an unique case. I should probably have a shirt made stating the obvious.
At this point, the plan is for me to get a round of chemotherapy for each week of radiation. It seems that I will be having 6 weeks of radiation, so 6 rounds of chemotherapy will compliment that. I'll be allowed to come home on the weekends initially. The doctor guessed maybe the first 3 weeks. After this point, the cumulative effects of chemo and radiation will have caught up to me. I'll probably feel too unwell to travel and in case of emergency, they want me nearby.
I'll see my surgeon on Monday, and hopefully there will be pathology results to share.
