The game plan

So, while we were in getting ready to get the first chemo treatment, we met up with Dr. H, and here's the plan he gave us:
Chemo every three weeks.
Six sessions of Chemo
Chemo drugs are: Taxotere and Carboplatin
Also given: Herceptin for one full year (this is the drug that blocks the receptors on my cancer cells)
Then onto Masectomy (no word on wether it will just be the one side or a double) along with the lymoh node removal on the left side (need to ask if it will be ALL lymph nodes or just affected one(s)).
Then maybe more chemo.
Then Radiation.
Then boob job that may include tummy tuck, depending on where they take the tissue from. Here's to hoping!
