Hi girls...I have  not been back since last year and I promised myself I would come back every year on my cancerversary 9 years June 15th life is good...my bucket list just keeps emptying ...and yes I kept a list in my head...When I was diagnosed my youngest was heading to college I did not make it to her highschool grad  I don't recommend that go even if you are chemoed bald and sick one of my regrets..and vied that I would make it to her University grad I did ! She is an RN in a peds ward. My oldest was off to Taiwan and has lived in China , Taiwan and more recently Thailand !  he is still living there .I became a grandmother(middle son) in Jan tic that off ..so see for the newly diagnosed life after all this can go on I wish you all the best in your treatments ...the fear will fade

Congratulations & thanks, Victoriasecret! As an ILC sister, I love seeing stories like yours. Just out of curiosity, did you experience SEs on Anastrozole &, if so, did they disappear after you discontinued taking it? Hope you have many more years of cancer-free life!

Victoriasecret, just wanted to say thanks for the return visit. We are pretty similar in dx and it's always uplifting to hear others are doing well and thriving. It seems the more time that passes from my dx and treatment, the more worried I become about the cancer returning. I wonder if the fear every really goes away. Anyway, thank you for giving me hope. Stay healthy and happy!
