First post treatment follow up with the oncologist
I have my first follow up visit with my surgeon and radiation oncologists in two days. The weather is threatening to force me to postpone the appointments. I'm a bit concerned as I have no idea what to expect now that my treatments are completed. I live in a very rural area three hours from my doctors. What will they be looking for generally? I have my list of things to discuss ready. Will a postponement be that big of a deal if the weather doesn't allow me to travel that day?
I hadI a lumpectomy in November 2018 for a stage 1 invasive ductual carcioma that was 5mm in size. No node involvement. In December I began 3 weeks of radiation targeted to the tumor site. I tolerated the surgery and radiation well. I'm also taking Anastrozol for the next 5 years. I have some joint soreness and mild fatigue that I think is from the Anastrozol.
