I had to investigate a specialty pharmacy for the Lupron shot because it was self-injecting. At first my insurance denied authorization so it was going to cost me $500 or something for every month that I am on Cytoxan to shut down my ovaries and in theory protect them from the chemotherapy. It’s proving to be difficult to get this shot so a part of me is taking it as fate. It just wasn’t meant to be.
I’ve never been so hyper-aware of all the changes in my body. I could be bed-ridden with the flu and still think I was fine. These days I know my body head to toe. Today I had slight stomach pain probably caused from the steroids, which can thin the lining of my stomach. I kept imagining a rupture and all the food that I had just eaten being let loose into my body.
