Is the constant crying the day after chemo normal? I had chemo in the late… read more

Weight Loss after steroid injections

I have had 3 epidural spinal steroid injections since the end of November. I was 118.5 before the first injection and now I am 110 pounds. I eat healthy because my husband has cardiovascular disease. I haven’t really been able to exercise besides
PT exercises. Should I be worried this may be cancer related?

Has anyone had a recurrence less than a year after treatments ended?

I had my first mammogram post surgery/treatment.Surgery was Jan 2018 followed by Chemo and radiation which ended in Mid October. I didn't expect them to find anything so was not concerned at all except that it may be more painful than others prior to my cancer. I was completely shocked to hear they saw a mass that needed further investigation. After an ultrasound it was determined that a biopsy was needed. Of course I am scared and nervous while… read more
