I’m going to give you some good news first. I AM NOT BRCA 1 or 2 GENE POSITIVE! This is very good news and a relief. I don’t have to wonder for the next 20 years if my children carry the gene or if my sister has it. Whew….I am relieved. I guess my cancer is environmental of some sort…..water, virus, who knows. I doubt I’ll ever know.
The bad news is I’m not a very good rebel. I skipped my neulasta shot and now I have a urinary tract infection. They might not be connected…..but I feel pretty yucky so I’m regretting it. Tomorrow I go get my labs done so we’ll see…..they may still make me get the shot anyway.
I’ve felt yucky….but not nearly as sick….so the neulasta is it….but I guess if it makes me healthy and fights infection I should grin and bear it.
