Well, it's been quite a while since I posted here.  Summer came and went, and Autumn is here.

Later this month I go for my q 3 month eval. with the gyn. oncologist in Philly.  I don't anticipate any problems since I've been feeling OK.

I had an issue earlier this year which had me concerned.  Since I have the BRCA2 mutation, I'm at a higher risk for breast cancer.  Well, long story short, I wound up needing to go see a breast surgeon.  Things are OK, but he wants to see me back in January.  He asked me if I'd thought about prophylactic bilateral mastectomy due to my risk factors.  I told him I had, but I kept breaking bones and needing orthopedic surgery.  It's something I'm thinking about; I really don't want to have to deal with another cancer.

It was nice to have a few months of peace and calm.
