Hi everyone,

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:)

    Hi Deb its good to hear how positive you, I reckon we have to have a positive outlook, I tell people they cant get rid of that easy I'm here for the long haul lol
    I was diagnosed in 2009 and had secondaries in the lungs at the start, no practice runs for me lol. I am ER+ Her2+ I haven't had any surgery as they said to aggresive will leave it alone I have Herceptin every 3 weeks and Femara every night which has kept me stable so far.
