Muga Heart Scan

Herseptin is a new medicine to cut down reoccurring rate of HER2 positive, which I have, into half, and I need to take it for a year.  Yet as this medicine  may cause a side effect on a heart, I have to check if my heart  is strong enough to accept Herseptin.

First a technician withdrew my blood, mixed with dye, and put it back to my blood vessel.  I lied on an exam bed about half an hour to take two pictures of my heart.  No pain or discomfort.

At night I noticed another new lump next to the original lump. I can’t wait for the surgery until the 21st.  I need something right away.  I asked George to push the hospital.
