30 years later.


I had breast cancer in my left breast when I was 27. Last year I was diagnosed again on my right breast at 57. I couldn’t believe it. Now after the expander's didn’t take and then my body rejected the implant as well. This was hell for me.. invading my body 3 times. This time around I felt like cattle. Come in and out no empathy or bedside manners. I left the hospital the first time 1 day later with 3 drains. I had a nurse come every day to check on the drains. The insurance companies and hospitals are only interested in the monies. Screw the cars of the patients. I am disgusted by all this.

    Hi warrior -

    It really is a shock to be dxd again after you thought for sure you beat the beast isn't it? I hear you. It was 19 years for me and I had finally begun to believe it wouldn't happen again….until it did.

    I am really sorry to hear that you aren't being cared for. Do you have an option to go to a different provider? As I didn't have implants, I can't offer any advice on that for your. Please keep posting — maybe in the reconstruction forum? There might be others there that could provide some advice.

    Take care.
