Im so afraid of what the pain will be after mastectomy and reconstruction. Did you all take major pain meds? For how long?
Nine months after my lumpectomy and radiation I find my treated breast swells up during the day and seems to be worse on hot days and days I am at home and do not wear a bra. Luckily the swelling subsides some during the night. I went to see a lymphadema therapist yesterday who is trying to break up some hardened tissue with massage and low level laser. I am curious as to whether anyone else has experienced such… read more
I've been told.to expect a few days down after the infusions and then being able to go about my business for a while before the next infusion. I have a fairly sedentary job, so I'm hoping to be able.to continue working.
I hate the idea of the possibility of more neuropathy, nausea, hair thinning, or loss, and hot flashes, all possible side effects of anastrozole. I was diagnosed Triple Neg, even though my er was only +1. This number is so low, I was just wondering how effective the drug would be and how necessary it really is. I had surgery first, then chemo, and now on radiation. My surgery resulted in all clear margins and no lymph node involvement.… read more
I had chemo, lumpectomy and radiation. Finished everything Feb. 2018. I was on a 4 1/2 hour plane ride yesterday and wondering if it's connected to that? I will follow-up with the oncologist, but wondering if anybody has experienced this? Pain comes and goes, but it hits hard!

I’m grateful to be upright and doing well but some days… read more

I have posted a request for Fitbit to add a tracker for hot flushes to their Fitbit. I am not sure but I think if they get enough votes for a specific item then they will look at adding it. I think this would be a good addition for us ladies to track the amount and severity of our hot flushes.
If you think so could you please vote for it on the following link? It would also be handy if they could add something to let you know how yours compare to others which I am sure they could do. They do… read more
Has anyone had a lymphatic bypass surgery for lymphedema in their arm after breast cancer? If so, where was the procedure performed at? Did your insurance cover the procedure? If insurance did not cover the cost, what was the cost for you? What have your results been? Any complications?
