My First Blog!
I am new to the BCNA blog. I was diagnosed at the age of 28 with grade 3, ER and PR negative, HER 2 positive and 2 positive internal mamory nodes involved. I have just completed my 6 months of chemo and now have 9 months of herceptin treatment to go.
I am finding this a very daunting time in my life as having now completed chemo I am just so scared of the cancer returning. I have just had a review with my breast surgeon which all went well. My only concern is my routine scans only involve having a ultrasound and mamogram. Does anyone have CT scans yearly to see if it has spread? My surgeon advises me he relies on symptoms only! But how far do you let a symptom go before you run to the doctor? I am trying not to stress myself about it but can't help being a little paranoid!!!
