I tried to ask my oncologist this question but she is unreachable, so it goes to all of you. I feel a heaviness in my pelvis, with some cramping. I had an overactive bladder 20 years ago and it kind of felt like this, but there is that uterine cancer risk. Could there just be the thickening I hear about with no cancer?
I am suffering terrible pain
I my knees, shoulders and hands particularly.
My right hand was so painful and swollen that I was as unable to use it. I’ve been on femara for 6 months. My oncologist is taking me off of it, because of these severe side effects. Anyone else experience awful,painful side effects?
i had stage 1 two years ago. had a double mastectomy and now take tamoxifen.

Interested to better understand the implications of having an isolated tumor cell in the lymph node. Specifically did your oncologist consider this node positive? What was the treatment plan? If your oncotype was low, was chemo still recommended?
I’m attending a free conference all day Friday from Cancer and Careers. It is a non-profit helping, educating cancer patients and survivors on all aspects of working during and post treatment. They offer advice on legal/discrimination issues as well. Below is the website that may be useful to others. There are in person events around the country as well as webinars.
I am Stage 4 w/mets to lungs & bones. Since Feb. 2018, the tumors in my lungs have remained stable - not growing, not shrinking, just sitting there. I am not taking any type of treatments or meds. Has anyone else experienced this? Does anyone know how long I can expect the tumors to stay unchanging?
Started Aromasin 6 weeks ago. My face is breaking out with painful cystic acne. I’m so embarrassed I don’t want to be out. Anyone have this problem
I recently got sick from my son's upper respiratory virus. It hit me hard. But what surprised me the most was my left breast tissue where lumpectomy was done was throbbing and my left arm was numb and a little bit swollen. I've already seen the doctor. I'm almost 5 yrs out from diagnosis. Has anyone else had similar problems.? Has it taken anyone twice as long to get over a cold then before?
