thought I would start this thread to give those who were diagnosed in 2017 or underwent treatments in 2017 a common place to share our lives and adventures

Welcome to all. Together we can learn from each other, lean on each other, and celebrate the good moments in life

Hi Dodgersgirl, pink, nancy53 and all the other 2017'ers . I thought I'd check in as it has been awhile. Been staying away as have been in denial that this whole crap happened.

was dx march 2017 and doing fairly well since. Had my ALND a year ago and then dx with lymphedema in the summer after a hiking trip where my hand swelled right up. Attended a few swimming lyphadema classes which helped and now fitted for a glove and sleeve, which i am still waiting for.

Also just had stage two DIEP , breasts smaller again as they did a bit of a lift to even them out, scar revision, nipple reconstruction and dog ears. was a bit tired first couple of days but almost back to normal day 4. Get to take the bandages off on Wednesday.

ON tamoxifin, apart from the hotflashes a few times a day and the stiff joints in the am, not doing too bad on it. Oh yeah, had a bone density and it seems i have low bone mass from the chemo last year, hoping it is reversible.

Yes I too am happy about the no periods, almost forget what it was like to have them, lol.

Back to work full time as of last march, been back to most of my activities. Did a bike trip through PEI past summer- was awesome, rode the confederation trail, even got my husband involved= was his first bike trip.

keeping my hair short, for now, even had a few colours like blue and purple streaks last appt.! looks pretty cool on my natural grey :)

Glad to see everyone else is doing well and hanging in there. My feelings are the same as everyone, reminders whenever i look in the mirror unclothed that this thing was real.........

Hello, everyone; I am just dropping in to let you know that my Bone Scan was clear, so my oncologists is not like to order another one. She felt that the hospital where I had it done has been exaggerating the "possible" metastases bit. I also got the results of my Vit. D test this a.m., and they are good, so was told not to increase my intake. It has been hard to deal with not consuming anything with calcium in it, and that is a long list, but I will do anything to get the blood calcium levels down.

DodgersGirl, I am sorry to hear that you have such bone pain, and can sympathize. I think I will start trying jo6359's suggestions. One thing I realized yesterday is that I finally am back to the strength level I was at in the spring of 2017. I can go up and down stairs without having to stop and rest, and no longer ask my husband to carry stuff for me, unless it is really heavy.

In case I don't make it back on before Xmas, just want to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Great New Year. We have a lot of coming and going here for most of this month.

It's great to drop in once in awhile and see how everyone is doing. Glad to hear all scans and tests are clear. Gives me hope that all will be well in the future for us all.

I was thinking that come March it will be two years since I got diagnosed. Hard to believe this summer will be two years since the start of chemo. When I look back I can barely remember how I functioned during that time. It's all a blur. The one thing I do remember is the friendships and support from everyone.

I’ve been away for a couple of weeks.

Nov 30th marked my one year anniversary since I finished rads. The date came and went without me thinking about it. Does that signal life slowly returning to normal??

On a happy note, we just returned from a 2 week vacation. Had to postpone travel last year (for obvious reasons) so took 2 weeks this year. Left on Black Friday and returned this weekend. I wasn’t sure how I would handle the car travel. I learned that I was ok up to 12 hours in the car, but longer than that and my knees screamed at me A LOT.

Spent 12 days at Disney World. Family rented an EVC for me for the trip as I didn’t think I could handle 6-13 miles a day as we toured the parks. Started out at Bay Lake Towers where our room’s balcony overlooked Magic Kingdom. We watched fireworks from the balcony two nights. So nice. Disney World is all decked out for Christmas. Really pretty. Christmas music everywhere.

Resting up today after unpacking and doing laundry as the real world returns tomorrow with work at 6 am. Sigh. Wish I could retire!!

Wednesday will be next MO appointment. Followed by a dermatology appointment the next week. Back to the real world.

Hope everyone is doing well

I am 7 years and 3 months from my latest scary triple negative, stage IV diagnosis. My FIRST breast cancer diagnosis will be 20 years ago, come 2019. Wow. That's 30% of my whole life.

In that time I've taken cruises across both oceans and the Persian Gulf. I've sat home and knitted I don't know how many sweaters. I've been in great health and I've spent 3 weeks in the hospital with a perforated colon. I've walked 5 miles a day and been bedridden for months. The one thing that's been consistent is that I've developed closer relationships with my kids, grandkids, greatgrandson! and cousins. I've made new friends here and otherwise. I've lived my life more carefully and more thoughtfully than in the 70% which was carefree and thoughtless.

That's my story and I guess I'm sticking with it.

We took our vacation at this point in time as a gift to my family— time together, instead of things under a tree. I am tired today but mentally, thinking about “where to go next” !! Maybe a few day trips during the cold winter?

I don't particularly care for any of the parks but I heard the Christmas decorations and festivities are incredible. I have my second cataract surgery tomorrow morning. It's no big deal other than I'll be stuck at home for a few days.

Winningsofar, your words are an inspiration. I need to take a page from your book. This July 2018 marked one year out of radiation. Some days I don't think about cancer. Then other days it's all I think about. I HATE how anything, like this annoying, tickling cough I've had for several weeks now immediately becomes something sinister, lung mets, instead of just an allergy or stubborn bug.

I've not checked in for a long time...good to see the many happy recoveries...so sad for those still struggling with this horrific monster.

I lost my implant due to the skin being so thin from radiation plus I'm still a smoker (I know)...I'm ok with it, it's ugly, yes, but...I'm still here! Maybe I'll think about fat grafting at a later date...probably not.

I'm doing...I'm doing...right?! My MO only requested a mammo and ultrasound on my healthy breast...no scans, nothing on the rest of me...said they don't do it unless I'm having problems. All good I guess!? I don't have any real issues with the AI although I DID go to the prolia shot. Some joint pain, nueropathy, cording, blah blah...the usual...nothing so bad that I need meds for it.

I still struggle with the loss of my wonderful husband and my mother who passed in August, but, I do have many things to be thankful for.

God Bless all & Merry Christmas!

I hope you have supported family and friends to assist you through this difficult time. Everything I've heard from friends, patients and even one of my sisters smoking is so difficult to quit.
