3 Times is enough
2003 - found a lump in my right breast - lumpectomy and radiation. Follow up with arimedex.
2010-recurrence in right breast -mastectomy and lymph node removal although all clear-follow up Femara. Thought ok all will be well Annual check up with surgeon and 6 monthly check up with oncologist.
2014- mammogram suspicious left breast. Biopsy - all clear. Decided on prophylactic mastectomy in June.
2015- annual check up CT scan - metastatic breast cancer in bones and lungs.Devastation,anger disappointment sadness. Radiation follow up with Aromosin and Afinitor. I have had to talk to myself a number of times since- throw out the poor me and what ifs. Not handling the blood tests, scans and treatment however I have wonderful support and need to take each day as it comes. I really appreciate everyone's posts as the feeling of being alone is swept away. Stay strong everyone
