FelineMum - so very sorry to hear about yet more stress after such a difficult year. It would be nice to think there would be a grace period of no new issues for at least some period of time for all of us. My Mom had a distant recurrence and is on amazing chemo and hormone drugs (all pills - no IV) that have kept her metastatic cancer at bay for over 3 years. no hair loss, no real SE except some memory issues and occasionally nausea. She is 81, golfs several times a week and all of her liver tumors have shrunk to almost nothing. I sometimes wonder why they don't use some of those easy drugs earlier when I hear about some of the very difficult chemo treatments people are going through at earlier stages.
We are fortunate that there is constant treatment advancements and new medicines all the time. I thought I would lose my Mom within 18mos t0 3 years after hearing her diagnosis. But, she is doing great and I certainly hope whatever you are dealing with is easily managed and you can get on with living your life.
Hugs to all of you brave ladies as we head into a much needed weekend. Rest and put yourselves first this weekend!
