Tomorrow, I have appt. with new Oncologist! He is only a short drive away. Since it is now too hard for trips to Atlanta, I will see a local Oncologist for my check ups and Mammograms. Glad to see everyone on Pinkie again!View Thread
OK, we all can do "the happy dance"! I am cleared for yearly visits to Oncologist. I really liked him, he knew my present oncologis at Emory and the previous dr. too. So, I feel very cared for. He is setting up for my yearly mammogram so now I am in good hands! I just cannot believe I am a 5 year Survivor! And as he stated, I had the worse type of breast cancer! Yes, there is healing and a future. View Thread
I rec'd an e-mail from dear Rachael, telling me about this new site. I came right over! I recognized many on the member list. I stopped going to F2F because the new site was confusing. But determined to find you all here. As of this month, counting the way my Oncol. counts, I am 5 years, cancer free! I had the dreaded Inflamatory Breast Cancer. Had a large mass which disappeared during chemo. Had surgery after chemo. I have some chronic health issues, which I won't go in to. Still live in N.E. GA, a true Bulldog fan and alumna. Retired art teacher. Raised my g'daughter....she is married and having a baby in Oct...a boy! Looking forward to being a real grandmother with him. Hubby and I camp (in big camper with all the luxuries of home). Active in my church. Computer addicted!
I am on Facebook with many other Sisters! I am so happy to see so many other oldies here! We are tough fighters that's for sure. Hope to find out more about everyone.
