Surgical Oncologist visit

I had another of my every 6 month check ups with my surgical oncologist on Monday. I saw Norma, the wonderful nurse practitioner and she went over things to watch for. Even though the chance of local occurrence is low with a double mastectomy, they still like to keep a close eye on you for the first 5 years. If I can have two more good 6 month check ups I can graduate to yearly visits!

One of the other patients had brought in some pictures to put on the x-ray screens. She told Dr. Whitworth that we patients needed a little eye candy to focus on while we are poked and prodded. I agree, and I thank her!
