OK NOW WHAT DO WE DO?

I finished the Rads 3 weeks ago.Now What???

Kind of cream?deoderant?soap?exercise?etc.

How do we get back to our life before BC?

And how long is this process.I would like to hear from other sistas what they are doing and how they are feeling after the RADS are over.

Granny you are on my church's 2 prayer chains.. Hold on Granny!!!

Thought maybe some GREAT NEWS on my front might make all feel better.. All my surgeries and LE Therapy bills have been covered 100% by my medical center!!! There definitely is a God.. We were down to our last penny and we got the news today.. Only covers the back bills not the future bills (sleep study is a question) but WOW..

ptdreamers and GmaFoley....thanks for joining the pocket party today!  You two are too funny...I heard you being all crazy in there...and exactly when I needed a little comical intermission, you didn't let me down!  Thanks!  (the chocolate was so yummy too!)

I opted for the 3D mammogram today...might as well get in with the up to date stuff...came back with the all clear on that one!  Yay! 

MRI...yuck...have to wait a few days to get results on that one...I'm hoping and praying though that since the mammogram was all good, this one will be too!  I just hate waiting though...  

GRANNY!!  Remember..I'm gonna be in your pocketbook!  I'm probably gonna be a little fiesty in there..wanting to come out and play, but I will hold myself back until after your surgery...love you lady!

A flat out question for all - If I were to have a mastectomy, would that make the "chronic" nerve pain in my breast go away?

Good question GMAFoley. I don't know. I have wondered the same thing. My seroma is so uncomfortable and my ribs hurt so I wonder should I ask about a mastectomy to resolve the problem. I wonder though if we wouldn't be opening ourselves to other problems.
