      Rosanna,
      That is a lousy bit of news and I think the positive spin on this is knowing they are OUT of your body. You will march on and complete the rest of your treatment just like all of your sister-warriors. We are all fighting this tough opponement. You and your pro-team are winning this...

      Rosanna,
      That is a lousy bit of news and I think the positive spin on this is knowing they are OUT of your body. You will march on and complete the rest of your treatment just like all of your sister-warriors. We are all fighting this tough opponement. You and your pro-team are winning this one. Your surgeon wiped out the "front-line" and now you are going after breast cancer's ~snipers~
      Rosanna, you put on your game-face and charge ahead!!! You are strong and fearless.
      We got your back, sista! Hang in there, you can do this. Sharon

    I'm getting blisters on my feet right where I have thick callouses. Doc says to use Epsom salts and rest. Anyone else had this?

      It's a common side effect of chemo. I finished almost 7 months ago and the sides of my feet near the soles are still calloused! I had some thick skin, heavy peeling, etc. and while it's better, it's still an issue. I honestly don't know what causes it but I know it's not uncommon.

      I have had blisters and peeling feet since chemo 4 of 6. One heel completely peeled off first level of skin. I finished chemo 6 three weeks ago and feet are still peeling. I don't do anything special to treat them but I did get a pedicure today and I feel better. Good luck and hang in there.

      This is tumor staging.... T= tumor N=nodes M=mets (spread) Here is a website to explain it. BUT.... if this is about you.... YOU NEED TO TALK TO YOUR ONCOLOGIST! You may take this completely out of context and scare yourself. ...

      I don't believe in living by numbers at any stage or kind of cancer. Stay positive, be proactive and you can live a very long life. Prayers to you.

It's a statistic and who know anything from that? I'd rather live in denial than dwell in depression. So I choose to know and then move beyond and defy. Wish me luck and you luck.
