After toting around the annoying drains for 7 weeks, they were finally removed today.  I see the radiologist on Wednesday (9/28) and will also have a CT scan for the radiologist.  I'm guessing that my 33 radiation treatments will start next Monday.

Now that I completed my chemo back on July 7th, my appetite has finally returned...with a vengence.  I'm eating mostly dense protein along with some veggies.  My RD said I am doing great with my RNY.  She isn't concerned about my increased appetite, saying that I am handling everything just great.

UPDATE 11/11/16:

Thank you to those OHers that have sent me messages asking about my progress.  I am happy to say that I am doing VERY well!  In fact, I'm doing so well that my radiation oncologist has decided to cut my radiation treatments from 33 to 30.  So, next Friday (11/18) will be my final radiation treatment. Yay!!

I'm still having Herceptin infusions every 3 weeks.  These are no big deal...no side effects from them.  I have to have them for 1 year.  I believe I will be done with the Herceptin infusions sometime in July 2017.

My weight loss is in a plateau status.
