First off I haven't been on this site for a long time, looks very different. I had breast cancer, have had the chemo, reconstruction, my hair came back., wink... grey and curly (I've had dark brown straight hair before) anyway... I had my mammo yesterday on the remaining breast, then after reading them they decided I should have an Ultra Sound.. ok did that the same day, then the radiologist decides I should have an MRI, my question is, has anyone got breast cancer again even if on tamoxifen? Also, has anyone ever thought of having the other breast taken so the constant worry if its coming back or not. I would have had both breasts taken but by the time that decision was made I had no time to fit in the schedule and Dr. didn't want me to wait any longer. I hve my MRI Friday 26, so I just wanted to know if it isn't cancer... if I should see how to get that done. I feel like I'm rambling so I'll stop for now. Thanks for reading... Take care and God BlessView Thread
For the kind words and encouragement also with the much needed prayers. Seems like there is so much cancer these days. Can't help to wonder why. I'll certainly keep you all posted as soon as I know something.
Thank you Bonnie for your response. It has been very helpful. I guess I knew that it could go somewhere else too, but was thinking "maybe not" My onocogist said to me one time "Dolly I'm not as worried about you getting breast cancer again as much as bone cancer" wow he could of talked all day and not said that!! I'm 53 I do have osterporsis and on meds for that. Sometimes I feel I'm just one big mess! My husband has been the best throughout all of this and any thing I decide he is behind me 100 percent. Now I have another friend "you" who is trying to help me understand all of this. Thanks again Bonnie, and may God Bless you on continued good health. DollyView Thread
