How do you control the fear of recurrence?
How does everyone cope with the fear of recurrence? I was diagnosed in dec 2019 at age 26 with triple negative IDC stage 2 grade 3. My cancer was tough and it put up a good fight, it was extremely aggressive but finally knocked it out with AC and had a complete response at time of surgery. All my treatment is below if you want to read it and I’m currently on a low dose chemo pill every day for a year to keep it from coming back but every single day I’m constantly worried it will come back. I’m right at 6 months cancer free and some days are better than others I try hard to not think about it, but every single day I think about it. I’ve had some pain in my cancer breast the past few weeks and we have an ultrasound scheduled to look at it. We think it’s just scar tissue and there’s no lump we’re just getting the ultrasound to be certain it’s scar tissue but it’s so hard to not think the worst. Every single day I think about cancer and scared about recurrence even though I’m currently on a chemo pill so I shouldn’t worry but I still do. Is the worry normal this soon out? Does everyone else worry daily?
