I was so excited to get rid of the extra pillows that were keeping me on my back at night , but when I turned on my side was terrible. Like I was laying on a softball. I have the mastectomy pillow didn't help.
Sorry for second question very similar. How long before you could drive after exchange surgery? Also, my toddler is super rough with me and I keep having visiins of pulled stitches *even dreamt about it* and I'm freaking out. Do they heal faster than they did after mastectomy? I know I can ask surgeon but she is not me , never healed from it before with a toddler in tow
I am trying to decide if I want to take Arimidex and radiation after lumpectomy? I am afraid of what the drug and radiation will do to my body. Are there significant side effects? Can doctors do blood tests to measure the amount of estrogen still in your body since I have already gone through menopause?
Hi, its been almost a year and a half since my last chemo round and my husband and I have been trying to get pregnant for the last few months. As of recently we did a frozen embryo transfer that failed to implant. We're waiting a few months to try again but in the mean time we are try naturally. What has been some of your experiences trying to conceive after chemo. Thanks
