For constipation we tell patients to drink prune juice, also like it mas mention ask your doctor for stool softener.
I still go crazy when I have mt exams, thinking on a second BC, or a recurrence, I do not have any cancer in my family but I am in this like the majority .
I did change, loss of hair, great skin for the lack of it, I gained weight, people telling me "you look good"I used to be skin and bones, cancer gave a healthy look. My only close family were my husband and 2 kids, my mom and extended family were in Bolivia, no need to let them know.
What I did to live with my dx, was that since I have never met anybody that had cancer, I signed as a volunteer in a cancer center, My University studies do not have nothing to do with medicine, and I ended going back and studying to work in the medical field with cancer patients.
I contacted Reach to Recovery and they send a letter to each of my children;explaining to them what to expect, it was well done perfect for each age. Just take care and surround with positive people, and pamper yourselves, take care.
After the mastectomy a second diferent cancer was found: Invasive Ductal Carcinoma, C.F.M.:
Dx 7/7/1991, ILC, 1cm, Stage I, Grade 1, 0/18 nodes, ER+/PR+, HER2-
