Trying to stay calm
My name is Julie and I live on the Sunny Coast Q.L.D. I was diagnosed 3.5 years ago with metastatic breast cancer, stage 4. I felt that my world had come to an end.
I had a total hysterectomy and straight into menopause, which I didn't find too bad. I met my beautiful oncologist, who put me onto Femara tablets, which held it at bay for 2.5 years. I then went on to Tamoxifin 12 months ago. My markers were coming down...great.
I have been in hospital 5 times in last 12 months with faecal impactment. My last visit to the hospital 2 weeks ago put me through many tests. long story short...........
I am going to have chemotherapy, for the first time ... on Tuesday. I have beautiful family and friends helping me through this. I got my long hair cut off, to my shoulders just yesterday, to get ready for losing my hair totally. BUT...it's only hair!
I am a very positive, spiritual person which I think has helped me. 3 more sleeps and I am going to blast the little buggers away. Once a week for 12 weeks.
Just wanted to get this off my chest, I suppose. Many sincere blessings to all the beautiful women out there who are in the same boat
