I went the other day to get blood tests done, one of the things to do from my doc's appointment. I was supposed to go on a specific day in my cycle, which is why I waited so long.
So I went with orders for three tests, plus my orders for my oncologist, since I'm seeing him soon enough. Lots of vials.
I got a message from the doc's office yesterday: "You are not menopausal."
Now, early menopause was a possible side effect of chemo, but if that was going to happen, it would have happened a long time ago. Given that I'm still having regular periods and so on, I had assumed I wasn't menopausal.
I'm a bit disappointed that that's all I found out from those tests. Hm.
Well, I have an ob-gyn who the doc recommended I go see, which I will do shortly. See what she has to say.
