I just saw my oncologist and my blood work looks good; I am three years out. :). I am, however, experiencing shortness of breath. My oncologist ordered a CAT scan and heart sonogram to rule out cancer or a blood clot. Has anyone else had shortness of breath. I would love to just be extremely out of shape. :)

It is feeling overwhelming to worry about finding the right plastic surgeon while trying to learn about the disease and make the right treatment choices.

Also, none of us want to go there but I just had revision surgery. And it was very easy. So nothing is etched in stone. There are always options.
