Hello Margun and any other HER2 positive ladies out there

There are lots of us HER2 positive ladies out here and living large. Have a look at the HER2 positive page and survivors such as Ms Phil or Denny.

They helped me when I was diagnosed in 2012 by offering hope based on life and living. Maybe now I can offer you that hope too?

My darlings, will you come back when you can and offer hope to future survivors too?

Love

Alice x

Hi ladies. Anyone here who did bilateral Goldilocks mastectomy.? I have a hard mass in my healthy breast ( also undergone Goldilocks) since the drains were out. When in January 2920I asked to my plastic surgeon about it, he said probably is the fat is dying but it is harmless.The thing is that hard mass is still there and seems to ne gets bigger and sometimes causes discomfort . My mammogram was postponed to June due to Covid19. I wanted at least confirm my plastic surgeons hypothesis that is harmless hardened fat.

I like to know if you noticed such thing in your breasts constructed by Goldilocks méthode or even with other méthode using your own tissues and fat and if it went away by itself with time?

Thanks

Today is 5 years for me!! I never posted here but read constantly after I was diagnosed! Grateful to all the members who offered encouragement and hope! I was 38, with three young kiddos. Stage 2B, surgery, chemo, rads and feeling great! Thankful to God for each and every day I get to praise Him for His goodness and faithfulness in the valleys and on the mountain top.

I reached my 5 year mark in March of this year and I’m still doing good. I have only had cancer in my Lymph nodes so far, that is until my pet scan 2 weeks ago. Now there is suspicious uptake in my left lung, a new Slightly enlarged lymph node sub pectoral, and a small cluster of Lymph nodes in the left mediastinal area next to my windpipe. I have had a cough for several weeks, I thought it was allergies. I was tested for corona virus, flu, antibodies, because I ran a fever for one day. They were all negative. Istart on the new Enhertu drug on the 18th of this month! I am excited because the results so far have been great for most people!

I had bmx and reconstruction, 10 months ago. The reconstruction is donewith my own tissue My left healthy breast had longer time to heel and had harden area after the secretions from tubes was stoped. My plastic surgeon in my January appointment said that it is probably .the fat is dying and it is harmless. However, since the the garden mass grew and sometimes causes discomfort. I was waiting my mammogram in zapril to confirm the idea of my plastic surgeon but the appointment is postponed to June due to Covid. I like to know if anyone is experienced such problem and if it went away or not. There is anything I can do to make it go away?
