Hi. Chances are high that I will be starting chemo in May. I know of at least one other person who is starting too. Let's support and love each other through this. Hugs with long chimp arms.

Wow, can you believe we're even talking about "mets' already. It's so real and not unlikely but it seems like we just went through the super deluxe car wash and are still wet.

I had my second set of scans last week and all clear. I wasn't worried but I must admit that the recurrence rate does spike within fisrt two years then year 5. 

I can't imagine my oncologist being able to look me in the face and tell me that I have mets so soon since chemo and radiation. Maybe I should expect the unexpected.

 You are all strong ladies and your hanging in there. Keep the faith. 

Arimidex nearly killed me. Aromisin is working much better. There are options for hormonal therapy. Fyi.

Hugs,

Kat

RE Hip pain and MRI: My Onc called and gave me the strangest news- he told me that I have a torn ligament and seemed shocked that I had been running around like this for so long. He asked if I had been doing some sort of strenuous sport around the time when the pain began (6-8 months ago) Ha! nooo! that would be when I was healing from my hysterectomy and rads... He referred me to an ortho specialist. I can deal with this!

Glad it's nothing more serious than that Beags - Ridiculous how compared to BC, everything else seems like not such a big deal!  Still hope you find something to ease your pain!

Hi everyone. Happy Thanksgiving. I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful holiday. Lots to be thankful for.

I am so sad to hear about blonde lawyer's passing. How awful. She was so young! I havent been on the Web site in a while. May she rest in peace with her deceased husband.

So, I share all of your concerns; chemo brain (although it seems to be improving), hormonal aches and pains, hair regrowth woes (curly.....ahh!), watchful/waiting for doctors visits and scans, getting "mojo" back, etc. I do feel like I am out of the funk I was in. Plus, I have two kids to chase so, I do not have long to sit around feeling sorry for myself! Lol.

Everyone, take care!

Happy December to all!

It does sound like we all have some lasting SE's from treatment. I had to quit my job, it was just too Physical work for me. On a better note, I love not workign, getting some projects done around the house!

Has anyone heard from Candice? (36yearold)? I miss blondlawyer, I think of her often. It does make me happy thinking of her and her husband being back togethher, healthy, and no more pain.

Not really sure what stage I am-Some docs say 3C, others say stage 4. I had no auxillary nodes positive but had internal mammary nodes positive and possibly mediastinal node positive. It's just a number anyways, right?
