Who Has Worked Through Treatment?
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I've been wondering about going through chemo and working. I have been doing taxes for 2 seasons since my treatment and I save my money for the remainder of the year until the following tax season. I have two more treatments left. This allowed me to get my doctors appts without hearing No you cannot go or get fired.

I am sure your oncology team will be in touch with your cardiologist to determine what is safest for you, based on the location of cancer, and your current cardiac health. Hugs!

Should I Or Not? Reconstructive Surgery
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hello sisters
I am new to this board and I come to you with a time-sensitive dilemma. In short, I chose reconstructive surgery after having a single mastectomy of my left breast, plus radiation
The reconstructive surgeon balanced out my breasts with small implants. Well, my left breast failed to take. The incision opened a little bit and now we have to “start over.” But do we?
I’m debating foregoing the reconstruction and just going flat. Would love to hear any thoughts and experiences from… read more

I have heard good stuff about blankets so will check that out.
Also Penny when you stopped Tamoxifen did you switch to something else. I guess my concern is reoccurrence.

A MyBCTeam Member

Ki-67 tests the rate of which the cancer is growing. Since it is a percentage, it is up to 100. My oncologist told me that average cancer is 20 %, anything over 50 % requires chemo. I am TNBC, with a… read more

Tissue Expanders Drifting?
A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I had a DMX with tissue expanders placed on April 3rd. There is a 1 to 1 1/2" gap between the expanders (in the center of my chest). I'm concerned that my tissue expanders seem to be drifting even further apart. Has anyone experienced this, and does it go away once the implants are placed? I'm self conscious about it now, because it doesn't look like the natural valley usually seen between a woman's breasts.

I had a tissue expander and can imagine that happening, though it isn’t normal, unless they are deliberately trying to stretch sin in that area. But that’s doubtful. My expander didn’t drift, but I… read more

A MyBCTeam Member asked a question 💭

I finished radiation therapy for breast cancer and had breast reconstruction. The radiated side failed. I am not planning on trying reconstruction again anytime soon. How do I care for the radiated skin? What kind of lotions or creams are helpful?
