I am just 4 and a half years past my dx of bc.I had chemo and radio therapy and found it very hard but am now almost back to normal albeit with no eyebrows and much reduced stamina.My dx coincided with the birth of my daughter's first child and it was so frustrating to be so ill for his first few months.I've made up for it since though! My cancer was found through a routine mammo so dont forget to keep those appointments! Anyone else in a similar situation?
Annie678 I found a large lump in April. I had all the tests including biopsy and then a lumpectomy and sentinel node biopsy on May 21st. Now I am waiting for the results. My appointment last week was cancelled so its been so hard waiting. My big day is tomorrow for the results.... don't think I'll get much sleep tonight.
Fingers crossed for you tomorrow wot. The waiting is horrible isn’t it? Take a pen and note pad with you and make sure you understand all that they say and if not ask them to tell you again as there is so much to take in.
Having had breast cancer I know exactly how you feel wot. It takes a while before you regard life as being normal. You have had a huge shock to the system both mentally and physically. You need to get used to the new normal.
I just want to say that my mother when 66 years old woke up one morning with Breast Pain. She had a shower and felt a lump Between her breasts mid sternum. So please ladies remember to check that area. She had surgery, radiotherapy and tamoxifen. No recurrence and she lived to age 84 years.
Has anyone used Anastrozole Hormorne Treatment for Breast Cancer... there are so many side effects including Osteoporosis Which are very concerning. Just had lumpectomy and Radiotherapy end have prescription for Anastrozole No horror stories please Many Thanks in advance
