This thread is meant to be for RANTS and RANTING. Then Rant again. We need a place to simply get rid of the anger. Write it here. Unleash it all. Get it out. This isn't meant for the Stupid comments(great thread). This is for the gut wrenching, tell them off anger.

IMPORTANT: When done ranting don't necessarily stick around. Toxic. Drop the rant and find a better thread.

Only rules: Please, follow them as the Mods will shut it down in a heartbeat( waving Mods)

1. Be careful to not mention docs, nurses, hospitals by name. Defamation and all that tedious legal stuff

2. If it's caused by someone on BCO, just don't mention their name. I think the exception will be if someone is stalking you, blow their anonymity wide open. A stalker doesn't deserve politeness.

3. If you think the rant is about you, let it go, they're no names. Don't take it personal. This is the steam room.

4. If they're is a fight, don't expect the Mods to moderate, it was your choice to come here.

5. After writing a rant, do nothing more, re-read at a future time. Decide if it's important enough for you to cut and paste the rant to whomever caused you the anger. It's a choice. Sometimes it needs to be done, but remember they're can be fall out.

6. ######## pound those keys, SCREAM(caps), J*&R$WSDF&(swear)

7. Religion and politics discussion should go to those topical threads. IF their is something that impacts cancer, it belongs here.

I will revise topic box as needed-sassy

For puking and the color works pukeewogh

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out shouting "holy crap....what a ride".

emily,

I am sorry that things didn’t go the way you had hoped. Stage II, in all its iterations, is indeed considered early stage and ones Oncotype score is not a factor in staging. It is sometimes difficult to figure out where work fits into your life after a bc diagnosis as everyone is different. I recently retired and am still trying to find my new rhythm in life. Take care.

The whole work thing is so complicated. I have done well for quite awhile, working in a high stress role but after almost five years of dealing with stage IV I’m getting tired. The tricky thing is, I don’t think it would be wise to try to retire as, not only would my income drop significantly but the extended health sucks. But LTD requires a doctor’s sign off…. difficult as some days I’m great, other days, not so much…

Waiting is the pits!

Still coming down from yesterday, doing much better today. Question is if this scar/dead tissue in there gets achy and hurts from doing the exercise class, do I just not go? I really don't want to quit. It's only 1x per week. Also, should I push back on the 6 mo follow up MRI? I feel like I really don't need it now (also don't want the expense either). After my esophagus incident I quit taking supplements-the multi-vit, C & D, and glucosamine. Most all of them are too big for me to swallow comfortably. So of course my knees, hips, and back hurt now. I just ordered a liquid form of glucosamine. I hope it works fast. Breast is also feeling better today. What we don't do to remain pain free. Still in a learning curve with different things to try.

Emily I worked for many years in a very high stress job in an office. I made the decision to leave the job and it was the best thing I could do. I had developed other health issues as well besides the cancer and it is so much better for me and I am thankful to be out of that. I was not 60 yet but with the help of an attorney who helped me with my SSDI claim I was approved. Money went down to less than half than what I had been making since I made good money but we have our house paid for and we are frugal anyway so are making due. Best wishes to you.

(also posted in TNs thread)

I JUST got it back. Benign! Weird, but benign. It says

"Benign breast tissue with fibrosis and foreign body giant cell reaction."

Fibrosis is scar tissue, which makes sense because it was in my lumpectomy scar. Foreign body giant cell reaction might have to do with the surgical clip, which got sucked out with the biopsy. I dunno. Will wait for a phone call from the radiologist to explain this.

Anyway, benign. Very good news and happy way to end the week. Thanks to all for sticking with me this week.

My surgery was in April 2019, so 2.5 years ago. What I see is that it's typical to have a reaction in the first weeks after surgery, so I might be an outlier (story of my life!) As to pain or pulling, yes, but twinges and occasional pain seem to just be part of the whole joy of having breast cancer, so I've never thought much of it.

So my questions, when I get to speak with someone about it, include

1) will this mass continue to grow?

2) what are the chances that it will happen with my other clips in the vicinity?

3) does it create any extra risk for the future?

4) does anything need to be done about it?

In the meantime, I'm just trying to get my stress response to settle down. I usually have a drink on Friday evenings, so that sounds like a good idea for tonight, especially.

I just read that Casey DeSantis, wife of Florida Gov. has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I wish her every success with her treatment, but I truly hate the comment from her husband that "she will never, never give up." I understand the intent, but sometimes cancer kills us. That will NOT be her fault if that happens.
