I heard back from the second surgeon, Dr. Palakodeti, and met with him this afternoon. He’s a really nice doctor and has a great sense of humor, which put me at ease a little more about the procedure. I am confirmed for outpatient surgery on this Thursday at 7:30 AM to get my chemo port placed! I am so grateful for the doctor’s office working me in on such short notice and for all the support of my family and friends.
I am so ready to get this port in and to start chemo next week. It’s a new endeavor and one that carries a lot of potential side effects, but the possible good is far outweighing the possible negatives in my mind right now. Let’s get this fight going and see if we can’t kick this cancer’s butt!
