…7 Years later

question: it’s been seven years since my mastectomy; is it normal, to have feelings of “aching” or soreness on the cancer side every now & then? It’s not a debilitating feeling but, just uncomfortable and, if I may, kind of “scary…”

    I feel same way. I’m tired. Depressed and sad. No follow up because I had double mastectomy. Every day is a chore. What’s wrong with me. Don’t want to complain to friends they don’t understand and will pull away. Who knows how to be happy and feel better after bc and in remission

    Thanks
