Stage 1 Patient
Kim we are all here for you. You are never alone in this. We all understand your fear. When we hear those horrible words, our world as we know it is gone. Everything changes & it's such a scary whirl wind! Just hang on & know the dr's have a plan taylor made to your needs. It seems like such a long time. I promise it goes by fast. You need to stay positive, your going to be ok. Make the best of it. Don't look at it as, 5 long months of chemo - it's ONLY 4 treatments (or how many you have) and so on. I don't even consider the tamoxifen as medicine. It's just a daily pill I take to keep myself healthy - like a vitamin. If it makes you feel any better, I had a lumpectomy, bilateral mastectomy with recon. 6 doses of TCH, 36 doses of H, 2 more recon surgeries, & taking hormone blocker for 10 years. I heard those words Feb 2012. It's been 15 months now, I'm in the finial stage of my tattooing - should only be 1 more session, & I'm loving life!!!! Stay strong, you can do this too. Feel free to contact me. Supermom654@gmail.com Prayers to you.
