Is there a way to be able to save many of the fantastic pictures posted on this site to our smart phones? Out of respect for my sisters here, it would not be of personal photos.

I am not having reconstructive surgery and the removal of the left breast was due to the fact I had decided not to do the reconstructive surgery.

I have been cancer free for almost 2 years. About 8 weeks ago I started having pain in my right hip. I let it go on for about 3 weeks then went to the doctor. They did X-rays and found arthritis in my hip. It has rendered me almost unable to walk. I have been taking Tamoxifen for almost two years. Anyone experience this? My oncologist feel confident that it's not a recurrence.
