  • Thought I would pass along a Hi:) I don't post alot but do check in almost daily. I find it very comforting to know I am not alone in this. Congrat's on finishing active treatment! I am also on Tamoxifen going on 16 months now. Best of luck.
  • I just read your post and was taken back one year ago. I was diagnosed 2 days before Christmas with Sage 1 IDC, with no family history. I underwent a right sided mastectomy Jan 13th, did the chemo, no radiation, and now am on hormone therapy. I l…
  • I am sorry to hear about your girlfriends diagnosis. I don't know if there is much to say to her about what she will be going through. I am a breast cancer survivor, and know first hand about losing a part of what makes you a woman. What I can te…
  • Best of luck on surgery! I have also undergone a mastectomy had chemo, and am the mom to two little girls who were the same age as yours when I was diagnosed. It is really tough, but they are the reason we go through all this. I found being honest…
  • Hi! I was diagnosed with breast cancer 10 months ago, and am the mom of two little girls 2 and 4. I had a mastectomy, chemo and am now on hormone therapy. It sucks going through it all, especially when you have a little one! Drink plenty of flui…
  • Glad your surgery went well, for the most part. I had most of my pain from my drains and about 2 inches past my incision site towards my back, nerve pain. Yes the numbness gets better. I had my surgery Jan 13 of this year, I now only have numbnes…
  • My story is almost the same! I was diagnosed in Dec with invasive ductal carcinoma of the right breast, underwent a mastectomy in Jan, four rounds of chemo which ended May 9. Also don't have any family history, am healthy and active and a healthy w…
  • So I took a moment while the kids were napping and dug it out of my closet (haven`t used it much since diagnosis:)) I got it about 6 years ago. It is a pixie, it just looks like the mule. Yeah it is different, alot smaller.

  • LOVE my camelbak. It is light on the back and mine has an extra little pocket in the front for my keys, cell phone and a small wallet. I love it for running but also use it on walks and hikes. I got it a few years ago but it is similar to the M.U…

  • I am also going through early menopause, so can relate. I too am lucky enough to have two children, unfortunately we wanted more, not sure if it is possible now. As for taking anything to help, I can`t offer you much advice. Hormone therapy is als…
  • I am right there with you! I have my final cycle of chemo Monday, and then I am done with my treatments. I should be happy but I am scared of what is to come, and know what you mean about being in the safe bunker. I was also at a good place in my…
  • Congrat`s on being finished with treatment! We have alot in common. I am also 32, diagnosed in December with breast cancer and will be having chemo and radiation as well. The crazy thing we have in common is we are both Albertan's, I am in Edmont…
  • Congrat's! I can imagine how frightening it must feel, but so exciting non the less. All the best with your next chapter:)
  • OH my!! I am shocked that he failed to read the reports?? I hope you have better luck going to his boss and getting switched.
  • I am also the mother of two little ones (1 and 3) and am dealing with breast cancer right now! I know what you mean about being "over with this cancer thing". It really sucks to be in a position where you are starting out your family, seeing your …
  • Great pictures everyone! I am especially partial to you Michelle and Calvin. He is so handsome, reminds me of our boy Keyser who we lost last summer. I know you have probably heard alot on what he is mixed with but he looks soooo much like our bo…

  • I am an avid reader and love alot of your suggestions! I am going to be busy uploading to my Kobo!! I am currently into the second book in the Hunger Games trilogy. I know it is totally cliche having cancer and all but I am also reading It's Not Ab…
  • I wish I was able to work right now! I just returned to work in November after a year of maternity leave, was able to work for 4 weeks and then was diagnosed. Now I am on disability. I work as an ICU nurse in a very acute busy unit. I miss all t…
  • Ahhh, this is a day I will never forget! Dec 23, 2010. My GP called me in to "discuss" my results. She told me that my preliminary patho reports were "more bad than good, but that is all I have for you, lets do an MRI to stage you"! First off wha…
  • Wow, that is horrible!! I can't understand how some people can become doctors! I can unfortunately relate somewhat. I was also diagnosed over the holidays! Dec 23 my GP called me in to discuss my biopsy results and told me that "it looks more ba…
  • I am a nurse who does alot of shift work and a mother of two girls 1 and 3, so I already have a foggy brain and poor attention span. I haven't started chemo yet, so it will be interesting to see how I will turn out in 7 months time!! Yikes!! My poo…
