but it sure doesn't seem like there's many of us.

Where are we all?

Hopefully not in the closet.

Wait, is that where everyone is, does this mean I gotta go back in?

 Hugs to all

Cancer sucks!

Lovegolf,

I am not familiar with Anastrozole so I can't help. I am following another thread about starting Chemo in January which is very helpful, you might want to check that out.

I am back here...she now has 9mm lump in neck that they scanned Thursday. Pretty sure it is cancer back in lymph nodes in neck. I really could deal with it better if it was me.

Lovgolf...so sorry to see you back here while you are awaiting further test results. I hear you re: dealing with one's own diagnostics vs. someone you love. So hard to just be there, but you seem to be doing that hard work. Keep us posted.

She also has 2 places in the lymph node in her chest so it is Staged as 4. She is on Imbrance and hormone suppression shots every 2 weeks. She is having pain in her legs etc really bad.


I did better when it was me. I do not know what to do. She is not sleeping at night so days and nights mixed up. I fear she is going to just give up. If not for our 2 granddaughters I am sure she would.

Hey all. There is another lesbian here... I am new here. I was googling to know if I am the only lesbian person who struggle with post-mastectomy challenges, especially isolation and fear of physical intimacy. I am happy finding that I am not alone and I hope to be able to find some queer friends here (:

My post-mas experiences of dataing and love have not been rich honestly. It is a long story... I was being cheated and I often think the only reason was my body and it really kills my sexual self-esteem. I am afraid of another rejection so I really prefer to date someone like myself.
