Wa alaikum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakhatu,
I have not posted in awhile but I plan to be more active, insha Allaah, so please let us keep in touch. What treatment plan are you using? My dx was April 19, 2009 IDC 1.5 cm Stage 1, Grade 2, 3 Neg Nodes, ER/PR+, Her2-.
I had a Lumpectomy, no chemo, no rads, no tamox and decided to use alternative methods. So far so good according to my latest Breast Therm in September, alhamdullilah.
How are you doing Sister and how is your family coping? Do you have support in your community?
Regarding your question "Why are the Muslim ladies so quiet?" I have explored this and found a few reasons. Many cultural barriers also shame and fear seems to be paralyzing for some. With more awareness, education and trust in Allaah, I know that we can be more open and supportive.
I will be posting more, insha Allaah and I hope that more Sisters will do the same.
