Okay little Mary....... Sounds like a job for Superman! They should all be ashamed of themselves for sweeping you in-between the floor-boards! They were probably looking at a text book, trying to figure out what they were doing, while they did your surgery!
If you trust anyone of your "team"....(and I use that word loosely).... You might ask for one of the Hormone suppresants, or Blockers, like Femara, Arimidex or Tamoxifen..... Because with your ER+/PR+.... You would be prescribed one of those, just for further after-care.
It's probably good that you had a Mastectomy, and it's a wonder those Doc's didn't take off your arm or something! I mean Holy Connoli, you must have been under the care of the 3 Stooges! It's a wonder you survived so much rinky-dink blatherings that day! Are you SURE you were at a medical facility and not at Jake's garage that day?
Yes, Vit. D3 is important.... At least your Primary has HEARD of that! But honestly, sounds like you should do well.... and no thanks to your comedy of errors Docs! We could all just shoot them, and put them out of their misery........ Let's get one of those stuffed dolls, and poke needles into them, to punish those guys!
Oh well.... glad you are doing as well as you are!
Mommarch! Be careful of that Ambien! I've heard lots of women, (on this thread) talking about the wild and crazy things they do, while under the influence of that drug! Have you tried Melatonin instead??? If you go to "search" at the top of this page, and type in Ambien, you will come up with lots of stuff on that. Tamoxifen is another sleep robber! But I took Melatonin, and THEN had to take truck-loads of those anti-diarrhea tablets. So THEN I quit everything, and gradually went back to normal. WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!! It's the Tamoxifen that is bothering your sleep... (I re-read your post!) I think if you take it for about 50 years, you should get your sleeping back in order.
Termite! Sounds like you are doing better!!!! See? We CAN do it! Just takes time. And lots of pills, and chocolate cokes!
And BETH....I don't know anything about Mastectomies or tissue expanders...but go to search and type in those words, and a lot of threads will come up! I've read some of them, but it's been a long time.
Okay kids..... gotta get busy.......... I'll be back later.......
Don't walk ahead of me, I might not follow. Don't walk behind me, I may not want to lead. Just walk beside me & be my friend.
