Feelings

I've been tossing this around my head for weeks. Ive told a few people that I have breast cancer and the immediate reaction is "I'm sorry" or "Can I hug you". I'm not sad I'm not upset, I view this is a roadblock. Its life changing but Ive done my research and I am anxious but prepared to take this journey and put up the best fight of my life. Im not letting this defeat me. Does anyone else feel this way? I'm not one to let things get me down. A blessing from God. My Dad has the same temperment.

Does radiation have an effect on blood counts?

I am 2 weeks out from radiation and still extremely tired. I've noticed in the last few days that I have bruises all over my body. I was like this on chemo when my hemoglobin was low so I am wondering if this could be the case now.

Does "side boob" go away ever, new implants

It's been one month with my round silicone implants and I've been using my surgical vest and a sports bra although the sports bra does not compress it as much, but I'm noticing the implants are wide, kinda goes under my armpit.

Does anyone with… read more
