I recently had a bilateral mastectomy and the side with the nodes removed scabbed over. I cleaned it a bit and most of the scab fell off revealing a normal looking nipple but there is still a bit of scab left that seems to go a little deeper than the part that fell off? Is this a normal thing because I don’t want to lose my nipple. If I have to I will but will it pass? Is this necrosis?
I’m on Letrozole for a year now. I had a masectomy Jan. 22 2018 and I’m a year in remission. I’m wondering is it likely to gain weight on Letrozole and or be tired more often?
Anyone been on this treatment? Side effects? Did you lose your hair? Did this chemo work for you? I am desperate for answers
I imagine some of you have experienced the following? Do you get used to it?

Hey ladies... So, I have been having hot flashes (which my onco warned me about at the very beginning) for about 2 years and some change. My onco has me on Venlafaxine (Effexor) which I thought was helping, but the flashes have gotten so much worse and completely uncomfortable. Right now I am typing this with a fan blowing directly on me, and my patio door wide open in 57 degree weather lol. One minute I'm fine, the next I feel like I am standing in the pits of Hell. What are you taking (if anything)… read more
I had a small ovarian cyst in the summer but it went away when I finally got my period. Now it is back and apparently the size of a lemon. It is pressing on everything and my back aches. I am at risk of “torsion,” which is when it twists on itself. So my oncologist says go off tamoxifen for six weeks and see if it goes away. But if it does, and I have to go back on tamoxifen anyway, how is that a fix? They are talking talking about my ovaries coming out too. Should I get a total… read more
Anyone had her2+ cancer stage 0 or 1? Not in lymphnodes or hasn't metastasized?
