Today my head is mixed with emotions with this next part of my journey. I start my immunotherapy infusions, herceptin and perjeta, back up. I've had a break since July because of surgery. It didn't feel normal to have my port accessed this time but I'm also in a new location surrounded by new and unfamiliar faces. It doesn't have the same family feel as North Haven did. I'm sure in time, everyone's face will become familiar and everyone here will become part of TeamLisa but right now I'm feeling a little lost, missing my cheery, happy family in North Haven. I am of course keeping my positive outlook to believe this is part of my preventative maintenance strategy to help ensure the longest life cancer free for me but on the flip side I am not looking forward to how perjeta makes my body feel. I have started all my natural supplements to beat the side effects but knowing this is every 3 weeks, for forever, hits me hard today. Reality has set in!! It's been all talk for several months but it's here now and happening. I pray I'm following the path I'm supposed to.
On top of all this I am also dealing with some complications from surgery. I think I overdid it. Physical therapy is on hold until my complications improve and I need more rest for my complications to improve. I am concerned but just praying everything will heal through rest.
Cheers to healing TeamLisa 🥂
Let's keep kickin cancers ass!!!!
