      My breast surgeon had me start taking flax seed ok. In a recent study, it is quite possible that flax seed oil or fish oil along with vitamin d3 and green tea and other anti oxidants can help prevent breast cancer.

      Yes. I had 5 sentinel nodes removed but the surgeon warned me there was a small chance I could have cancer cells in any of my axillary nodes. Again the chance was very small. Since I am 5 years out now, I am fairly sure they were ok since I have not had a recurrance. Every time I...

      Dear Norma,
      Yes. I had 5 sentinel nodes removed but the surgeon warned me there was a small chance I could have cancer cells in any of my axillary nodes. Again the chance was very small. Since I am 5 years out now, I am fairly sure they were ok since I have not had a recurrance. Every time I have gone to my oncologist or internist, they have always checked my axillary lymph nodes for any swelling. Breast cancer is so very sneaky, I would not be surprised for it to raise its ugly head somewhere, sometime in my life. Arrrgh. God willing, I hope not. God's blessings to you, take care, Norma, Sharon

      I had a mastectomy five years ago and hada recurrence in my lymph nodes this past February so the short answer is yes . Unfortunately.

      I wS pretty much like Betti. Betti and I also didn't have reconstruction to didn't have expanders to contend with. Expanders are uncomfortable. I never had any post-op pain and never took any pain meds. I was tired for the first couple of days but no discomfort to speak of. I was able to take care of myself, do the dishes, etc. I really thought it was easy. I started chemo at the 6 week point. . Take care, Sharon

      Everyone heals at different rates. I had a unilateral mastectomy on a Friday and was discharged with 2 drainage tubes. I drove myself to my surgeon's office on Wednesday to see if they could come out. I also walked from her office to the hospital next door to pick up some records. I didn't have any problems other than I overdressed a little (it was mid Feb) so got pretty warm. I'm one that doesn't like lying around so went out for several short walks numerous times during the day even with the tubes in to keep myself going. I never had a need for any pain pills.

      You won't know what the lump could be unless you make an appointment and see your doctor. It could be one of many things. Please make an appointment.
