Pain From Diagnosed Cancer, Not From Treatment
I'm starting this to discuss breast cancer pain.
- Not mysterious pain that you think might be cancer.
- Not pain from mastectomies or other breast surgery, such as reconstruction or mammograms.
- But breast and metastatic bodily pain from cancer, particularly bone pain, and breast pain for those recently diagnosed.
So, tell me about your pain: what you feel, what helps alleviate it, and how you cope with managing cancer AND pain.
I am an ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation and will share what I've learned.
This is a safe space to share grief and agony. If it helps you, and I hope it does, write about your pain. Some people find mental relief addressing their pain as an entity. (Dear Pain: I'm tired of fighting you. Etc.)
