Hi sisters,

Just wanted to find out how many of us are in our 30s.

Do you have husbands and families? I found that aspect particularly hard while I was doing my chemo- keeping up with the needs of everybody else while I was doing my treatments.

Now I'm in the radiation portion and school will be starting in about 10 days... yay!

Say hello if you have a moment!

Hi Ladies.

Without getting into the REAL “long version”, here’s my story:

Found a lump Sept ‘16, a month before my 35th. Ultrasound diagnosed as Fibroadenoma (benign tumor). It grew. Couldn’t ignore it after the first of the year. Went in for biopsy, 3 days later I’m told I have stage IDC (later found to be stage 3A. Had single mx w/no recon, and 2wks later started AC/T chemo, finished 7/17. Started rads 8/30. My rads doc thinks he’d like to stop just short of 30 doses because the tx area is an open sore, just getting worse (some of the worst they’ve seen, in fact).

Now it’s onto Hormone Therapy... which I’m dreading. I need some BC sisterly insight and where better to get it?

I’m scheduled to get monthly Lupron injections to shu down my ovaries, and also take Aromasin (AI). My Onc explained the horrific possible side effects to me better than he explained my breast cancer. I’m going to go forward with this treatment on a trial basis. But I’m desperate to know what to expect. The lowest lows. Any possible pro’s (the only one I have is that it MAY stop BC from recurring, and that’s good enough to give it a try).

My tumor was barely 5% ER positive. I am incredibly sensitive to hormonal shifts (mood swings & weight gain). Went into chemo-pause during Taxol and have not come out of it. I want to keep my marriage in tact and re-establish a sexlife with my husband. No family planning for us so that’s not a concern. I’m scared and reluctant after hearing so many negative effects.

Dx 1/13/2017, IDC, Right, Stage IIIA, Grade 3, 3/9 nodes, ER+/PR-, HER2-
