I'm 53 and one year out from a diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer. Had lumpectomy, chemo, and 7 weeks of radiation. I have a question for fellow breast cancer survivors. Has anyone had problems with braking their ribs? I had a stuck door and put my shoulder to it to get it unstuck and broke 4 ribs on the side I had radiation on.View Thread
Hey nikki; I was diagnosed with stage 1 grade 3 triple negative breast cancer on December 3, 2011. All last year I was in treatment of one kind or another. After so much treatment I started to feel like every one that worked at the cancer center had seen my left boob (not so but that's what I felt like) I guess to me I'll bare it all so they can find it at an early stage. You have to find that one thing you wont to live for (for me it is my kids and grand kids). Food for thought nikki I would give anything to be able to take Tamoxifen!!!!!!!View Thread
