Today I went to the lymphodema clinc for my first appointment. I got a list of how I need to lose weight (heck, yes!), move more (double heck, yes!) and take care of my skin. They are holding off any prescribed support stuff until I've been cleared for Bowen's disease which is a different form of skin cancer. The stuff on my leg looks a lot worse than the pictures on the NHS website, but it may just be eczema. If it is Bowen's disease, it still isn't as scary as it sounds. It's just going to be another round of hospital appointments, really.
Tonight I'm going to allow myself a small pity party. Tomorrow I need to work out what I am going to do - and move more! Until then, let me share one of my favourite pictures. I plan to channel this cattitude.
