Roller coaster is a good way to put it. Glad you have some flatter days! Hoping you get through those days that are bigger reminders.

Ok guys.... first of all in case I have not said it recently Cancer Sucks.
Sorry it has been a bit since I posted but as you have heard I have had ANOTHER complication...
An old injury (prior to the breast cancer) did not heal correctly because my chemo made my blood as thick as sludge and hemolytic ( full of dead blood red cells) so the top of my femur (thigh bone) died.
A simple fall earlier this year broke the dead bone and I was walking on it. A bone scan accidentally found it and because of the original injury and the dead femoral neck it was determined I needed a full hip replacement with hardware removal.
Monday the 12th I got all previous plates and screws removed...all dead bone removed and my thigh bone and hip replaced. I can finally hope that this complication is the last, final heartbreak from this miserable disease...Thanks for listening guys....
Wow! You've been through so much. Sending you lots of good thoughts that you heal in the right way from this.
