    Why yes indeed it has!  Whoop, whoop!  3 years ladies!    

    I'm feeling great, except for some complications from Tamoxifen and on/off shoulder pain.   But otherwise doing well.  Hoping you all are well, too.

    Yes, I am OK as well. Holding steady and still flat (my choice). I do still get a bit of tightness across the incisions from time to time, but it is very minor compared to the way it was the first year.

    Hello ladies!

    Just checking in- another year over.

    Nothing new with me- oldest daughter started college (2 hours away so close enough to visit), DD#2 still busy with gymnastics and school (straight A student and practices 30 hours/week year round!) Still working FT in a job that I love.

    Three of my co-workers are also part of the sisterhood! Small world

    Hope all is well with everyone. We helped each other get thru a very tough time

    Hello everyone! I am still here, still have chemo head. Nothing new with me, besides car accident last year, which brought me to another operation. Now I am fine, thank God, but still afraid to drive.

    Olgah,

    How are you? After ten years at stage IV, I am still around and retired from teaching in June. Who would have imagined that was even possible 10 years ago? I think I may be the only one who still posts regularly from our Sept. 2011 group. I hope everyone else is enjoying a bc free life! Take good care.

    Cary, it was so nice to hear from you! 10 years....I think sometimes, it was only a bad dream...till I look on my breast....I still cannot wear pink. I hate October. I had couple more DNC , because Tamoxifen has been growing cysts in uterus and cervix. I had an accident in 2016 and had hip operation Labrum tear. I am so tired of working full time and being old. I hope more our group people respond.n We were nice group and supported each other.
