I got breast cancer in 2010. It was a huge shock but you just have to scrape ya jaw from off the floor and deal with it. I had a masectomy and reconstruction of my right breast, sentinel node biopsy, chemo and tamoxifen. My right breast is just as awesome as my left one only it has a party trick where I can flex the lattisimus dorsi muscle and make it wiggle. I also had my nipple tattooed. It has faded a bit but I'm not bothered.
I got secondary breast cancer in 2013, even bigger shock cos I thought it was gone but oh well sh$t happens.
I have secondaries in my lungs, liver and bones. Still trying to find a med that I can be on for a long time. I am hr+ and her2- and am now on aromasin and affinitor.
Some lesions are shrinking but markers are rising so will see onc on Monday to see if I go on Halvelen.
I still work full-time just get tired and parts of me hurt but I get lots of help from everyone who loves me.
It would be good to chat to people with secondaries and have a good laugh. Laughter and love gets you thru plus I'm as stubborn as a mule and I'm hanging around till the cure.
Good job my onc likes me lol.
Gotta go now, hope to chat to u all soon.
Take care girlfriends xoxo:)
