Monday was my monthly visit to the Farber. Sinc Mary McKenney was on vacation, I was scheduled to meet with Dr. Richardson. Sure enough, he was right on schedule, two and a half hours after the appointed time. It was great to see him, as usual. Unfortunately, I had developed a head cold and chest congestion, so he deferred my Zometa infusion for a week. He also took me off the Revlimid for a week and gave me a prescription for an antibiotic.
Since then, I have felt worse, and I have spent much of the last two days sleeping. I think I'm starting to feel a little better now, so I hope I'm on the mend.
When I got home from the Farber, there was a letter from my dermatologist, Dr. Reohr. Sure enough, two of the three biopsies she took came back positive. The one on my face is a possibly invasive squamous cell carcinoma, and the one on my arm is a well-differentiated squamous cell carcinoma. I wasn't too pleased with that diagnosis. I especially didn't like the term "invasive". I checked online, and as far as I can tell, these can both be removed safely without any concern for them spreading. Still... I will have to go in for surgery soon to have them removed, hopefully after my golf trip at the end of February.
Normally, I would prattle on about this and that, but I'm not feeling on top of my game right now, so I'll make this short and sweet. Until next time.
