Achievement unlocked.

My chemo port has been removed!
I had the surgery early on Friday. The prep took longer than the surgery itself! My oncologist did it. He's very happy with my progress and doesn't need to see me again until May- right around the first anniversary of starting chemo. So that's one more big step in my remission.

I've had a lot of pain, though. Nowhere near as bad as when the port was put in, but it sucks. The pain meds have made me very tired. I've gained three pounds since last Thursday. I'm almost feeling like myself, so I can go back to my diet and light exercise this week. I still have over a month to lose more weight!

I took a few selfies while waiting to go into surgery. I look awful, but I think it's good to have a warts and all record of my cancer journey!

Pre-surgery selfie!

The view is the same for every surgery.
