Yesterday was my first meeting with my oncologist. I was lucky to have mom and Nik there with me to help me remember stuff. But I know you are all wondering what happened, so here it is:
*They are still not 100% sure it is Hodgkin's. They are like 90% sure. But the difference between the treatment of Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's is 180 degrees. So they want to be 100% sure. Fine.
* That means I may have to have another biopsy. Only this one would have to be from the mass in my chest. Either with a needle or with a small incision between my ribs. Yay.
* Before my first chemo treatment in a couple weeks I have to have the following done: Bone Marrow Biopsy, PET/CT scan, EKG, and a port put in above my collar bone. The port is first, this is so they don't have to stick me every time I do chemo or they need blood. I'm ok with this. That is Monday in the morning. Tuesday I have the PET/CT scan and the EKG.
