Tuesday, August 30, 2011

Wow, again it's been a long time since I've posted to my blog.  I continue to receive all the alternative medical treatments to help overcome the chemo side effects.  Besides fitting in a few walks a week, I continue to work out at the gym to build up my stamina.  I returned to work part time (3 days a week) a few weeks ago at Kaiser in Fremont.  It's exhausting to say the least.

I'm on a regiment to have a check up every three months for two years with my surgical oncologist.  I will have the CA 125 test every three months also.  As long as I am symptom free, I won't have any additionals test or check ups.  At three years, I will see the doctor every six months and the fifth year once a year.

I had many of you voice that you can't post a comment and I don't know why this is happening.  Feel free to contact me via text or phone.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Monday, Aug 8th, CT NORMAL

Hello to all of you.  I hope you are doing well.  It has been awhile since I've posted so I thought I would touch base with all of my supporters out there.  I am pleased to announce that my CT Scan done the end of July was normal.  I am on schedule to start work again next week with orientation at the new job.  Other than the commute, I am excited about the new opportunity.
I continue to see all of my alternative practitioners: acupuncture, healing meditations, neuro-reflex therapy, chiropractor and now lymphatic drainage.  I continue to walk with my mom.  I have also now started to swim laps again and did Zumba for the first time in almost a year, this past weekend. It felt great.  I needed to take a nap shortly after coming home, but at least I made it through the class.
I continue to look forward to all of your messages and would love to visit with any of you if you haven't seen me in awhile.  Hope you have an enjoyable time these last few weeks of summer.  I love the warm weather, so I'm going to hate to see the summer come to an end.
Thank you again for your love and support,

Dr. Oliver
