Well, now that I’m finally out of pain, enjoying the springtime (almost summer!) with my kids, and getting back to work (naps/nights/weekends), the big question is … what’s next?
The answer is, I’m not sure exactly. I feel good, but oh, so tired. We think it’s a side effect of the tamoxifen, which I have to take for 5 years (it’s an estrogen inhibitor, locking up any remaining estrogen so it doesn’t feed any stray cancer cells). But it doesn’t matter, because I have to take it. I’ve kind of slacked off on the iced tea lately; looks like I’m back to it.
And exercise. Must start exercising again. It’s important, to reduce risk of recurrence and restore energy, but I am so not motivated to do it.
