Following a mastectomy in April, have just returned home 2 days ago from a breast reconstruction (and a little bit of aesthetic work on the other side!) Feeling a little sore and squeezed but feeling pain means I am alive and doing ok.
Didn't have any chemo (although was told I was "borderline") which caused me a lot of anguish for a long time (still?)
I have been put on to Zoladex injections for two years, tamoxifen for 5 years and then something else after that for 5 years.
Seems everyone else in my life is over it except me. Maybe I just need to suck it up and get on with it, which is what I am trying to do.
Just thought writing it down might help, thanks.
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
