Morning gals.......Yes Tigger, I'm so grateful also.  And I'm thankful that I was much older than some of you gals when I heard I had BC.  It's  frightening anyway, and then to be younger with little kids, I don't know what I would do.

But I had DH, both our Daughter's, and Rosie.... Rosie was from Viet Nam, and she and my one Daughter became friends.... she got married years ago, but she says we are her "other Mom and Dad."  So she's like my Daughter from another Mother.Wink  They took me to the Hospital for the surgery, and THEN went shopping, lunching out, and had all KINDS of fun while I was "under the knife"...Ha!  Surgeon had to call them to ask if they would come get me, that I was ready to go home!  They were so fun to be around, that I didn't have time to think about ANYthing.  

And Kantalope.... I'm thankful for her... She makes me laugh all the time, and we love teasing each other.   See, I think everyone needs people around them, that will comfort you, and hold you in their arms, and just make you feel safe.  And you have to have someone that will make you laugh.... So I think that's why we are here for each other.  And that's your lesson for today girls!  Ha, ha! 

So I'll close my eyes when you gals all get together, and think of you in GCS!  I can't come and be with you.... I sort of can't leave DH alone for too long....But I'll BE there with you, in my heart.  I would love to think of you all gathered around, with music playing, and you guys dancing and just having a ball!

Can I be honest ? In a word, iatigger ? No!

Actually, I feel UNfortunate that  the (local) newspaper article that just came out around 2 weeks ago saying ppl with my stage  might consider just the ' watch and wait' instead of stirring things up!

Sure wish someone had told me that at the time. I just figured  BIG C - surgery! 
I got no rads, SNB  LX and 2 nodes out , and I have lymphedema.  We are ALL at risk for it ... no matter the stage , and it is lifelong.

I may ( or may not) get a  recurrence and any one of us can get into another stage. We are not out of the woods by any means.
I'm as grateful as the next person for what I DO have , but as my husband ( who was a stage 4 btw) always says : " If you're going to wish, wish BIG!"  I wish they never detected it in the first place to be honest with you!

purple32 - I read that article as well.  Unless the one printed in my local paper was edited somehow the specific BC diagnosis was never stated, it only said "early breast cancers".  I assumed they were referring to Stage 0 DCIS or LCIS.  Did the article you read have more specifics?  I was a little surprised that they were so vague.

purple32 - My local paper must have truncated the article.  I don't remember reading any of what you wrote.  I was, of course, looking for my own stats in the piece.  Hmmmm, mine were all under 1cm, but I had an ILC, a DCIS, lobular neoplasia, and multiple areas of ADH "sprinkled throughout the mid-breast".  None of this showed up on my mammo.  The ILC was borderline (18) on the Oncotype DX testing so I had to decide about chemo.  Unless I read something more conclusive than this I'm still going to be satisfied that I made the right choice for me by choosing BMX.  I just had too much going on to convince me that leaving it all alone would have been the right path. 

I think most of us play the "what if" game throughout this process.  I'm sorry this article casts a shadow over your treatment choices, especially in light of your resulting lymphedema.  It all just plain sucks!

I have NO doubt that you made the right decision, and I apologize if I made anyone think perhaps they did not . I was talking strictly about myself.


In my situation with my early stage luminal A cancer and having bad lungs that resulted in me skipping rads AND bad bones < 3 serious breaks>  that resulted in me skipping ALS and CIRC/ vascular  that resulted in me skipping tamoxifen, it surely seems like surgery alone was not worth it - ESP . with the resulting LE after 2 clean nodes out.  Seems like all of the TX were a huge catch 22 for me...perfect storm.  I have even been warned against taking DIM because of a thyroid goiter !

Seeing ' my story" , I'm sure you can understand why I might feel this way.

Best wishes to you.

Morning Purple.... You know, speaking for myself, I didn't have to go through anything like you did... I mean we are all so different.   I maybe could have NOT even had the MammoSite radiation, but listening to my surgeon, convinced me that it would help, and also the 3 nodes were clear.  I COULD have done chemo, with an Onco score of 19, but I didn't want to.  I took Tamoxifen for 14 months and lost my hearing.  BUT I'm 3 years out now, doing good, and I DO find a lot to be thankful for.  When things affect us like they sometimes do, it's easy to understand why we really get down and have a hard time seeing anything good about what happened to us....

I just thank God everyday, that I am beyond all that happened in my life 10 years ago.......  I went through it, we got everything straightened out, but at the time I thought I couldn't and didn't want to go on anymore.  I was just done.   But  with the help of my friends, and my beliefs and determination, I came through it.   It WAS the darkest part of my life.  So I DO find things to be grateful for...  My breast cancer wasn't easy, but for me, maybe going through what I DID before, made it easier for me to face.

Take good care.

No Scottiee....  They told me it is "permanent nerve damage"....  I've been wearing hearing aids for almost 2 years now... I researched it all, and I know Tamoxifen is a "chemo drug".... so maybe it affected the little nerve "hairs" in my ears, like it does the hair on your head.   I was so afraid when it happened, but you just get through it.  

I know it doesn't happen to everyone.... I still have tinnitis, but that's also something you just have to live with.   By the way, the ENT Doc didn't know if it was possible or not, that Tamoxifen caused it.....but just one morning my left ear closed up.... then my right ear.  My Doc thought it was allergies, so for another month, we treated it for that.  But finally she referred me to an ENT... All I knew was I could not hear....

I took Tamoxifen for 14 months.... I wish I could have taken it for the 5 years, but I was just too afraid.

Chevyboy how horrible for you, I'm sorry. I lived with a mother who started out by losing
her hearing in one ear, but hated wearing the hearing aid. As she got on in years, the other ear started to go. I cried for her because she was such a social being and the loss
of her hearing took most of her social life away. She just couldn't tolerate the hearing aids. What made matters worse was that she was in Scotland and I'm in Canada and we used to talk for hours on the phone, then, of course, that ended. I also worry about myself re tinnitis and being on Letrozole.

sorry chevyboy...not too sure what you mean ( before ?) 

but yes, I appreciate the fact that we all have very different experiences .  Furthermore, we are all at a  different stage ( denial, acceptance, depressed, content, happy, miserable, afraid, alone, grateful, depressed etc ) that is fluid- hopefully.

Thank you for your post.

Hi Purple.... I meant that what I went through 10 years ago, before I got Breast Cancer, was worse on me emotionally than going through the BC surgery. 

And yes, we DO go through different stages.... I remember "before," when we were going through such a hard time, I would lay in bed, and just get sick to my stomach, I was so afraid.   So I can really appreciate being where I am now.  I guess those feelings  ARE "fluid".... that's a good way of putting it. 

Scottiee... I can see why your Mom didn't want to wear the aids.  They ARE a pain in the butt sometimes.... And  it IS  so LOUD in restaurants, stores, etc.  But I lost 100% "word recognition" in my left ear, overnight.  Then just 50% in my right, and that's within a couple weeks.... So that's when I quit the Tamoxifen.    Honey, don't feel bad for your Mom.... she wanted to do it that way....  She must have thought it wasn't worth it to wear the aids....

My girls AND my DH still get a little "testy" when I can't hear, or when I ask them "what?".....   I can hear a lot better, but it is NOT like your own natural hearing.  It's like wearing an amplifier in each ear!  And these are good aids!   Ha!

Kantalope must still be asleep..... she isn't around here to rattle things up!  Wink

Granny,

sounds like you know ML D- good to do both morning and night.  Dont forget to drink lots of water and raise your arm up over your head now and then and very slowly open and close the fist.  Lots of deep breathing when you think to do it.

Hope this subsides.

No not done shopping here, no tree or decorations up yet and what with all of us having had the flu the last 2 weeks haven't felt like doing much.  It may not happen until the week before Christmas at this rate.  Besides I'm still mad with my hubby because I wanted a new tree and he didn't want me to spend over a 100.00 on a new tree, but he blew almost 200.00 on a drill, flashlight, and shop vac that he didn't need right now.  Ugh... MEN!!!

Now... I have an appt. with my Med Onco tomorrow and before his appt. I have my appt. to get my yearly mammo.  Let's just say I am worrying myself to death.  I am totally stressed out and will be till I get an all clear back.  I hate this time of year.  It would help so much if they just gave me the results tomorrow, but NO!!! I will have to wait a week till I get a letter or a call from the nurse letting me know.  Normally I have gotten both.  Anyway I have been so stressed I have had a migraine for 3 days.

Renee....I have my MO appointment next week.....

I have a new DR seen her in June ....she doesn't do Tumor Markers test...so I don't get all hyper-ed up anymore.....I don't know she examined me and some Blood work and Vitamin D test..........nothing unusual that I don't get from my PD......

Good Luck tomorrow....Why don't you ask for a DX Mammo you get the answer before you leave....

Now when I make my app I say it's DX Mammo so they schedule me in the morning when the DR can read the result.......Little white lie and I don't feel guilty about it
