I am struggling with this subject. It is a very small problem in the scheme of things, but I really have enjoyed wine in my life, and now I feel like I can’t have it - and when I do I think it will bring my cancer back? My Onco did not say anything about what I can or cannot have anymore, and when I asked about foods and juicing he had no advice...but I found out through good old google that alcohol can increase estrogen?
I google everything I expose my body too now since my diagnosis And I Juice daily, and have stopped birth control pills, I have stopped dairy (ILOVE CHEESE and milk!) I have stopped meat - I am now a vegetarian, I buy organic make up and lotion and Paraben free hair products, I have stopped sugar to the best of my ability, i have gone organic, I threw out all plastic containers and switched to glass - but WINE too? It seems I have to give up so much that I really loved.
I used to have a glass of wine or two quite often Before my diagnosis, and now I am having a glass or two on Friday nights, and maybe saturdays, but I feel incredibly guilty about it...
What is everyone else doing? Google says no drinking AT ALL, or 1 glass per day, or one per week, I am confused!
I was doingnosed With IDC 1.3 cm stage 1A ER/Progesterone positive Onco score was low
I had a lumpectomy March 3 2020 and finished Radiation May 1
I am taking Tamaxofin since 5-5
Cheers ladies and HUGS to all of you - I am so happy we can all lean on each other..
