Was having a part of me ultrasounded and the sonographer noticed a spot somewhere else. A couple of days of tests and seeing a new surgeon followed.
It jolted my partner and I out of the kind of comfort zone we'd ended up in after 5 years of no evidence of disease.
And made me realise I need some better strategies to cope with acute stress like this.
What do people find helps? Talking, meditating, breathing exercises, eating...?
Hi Braveb what a jolt hope all is well. Personally I find exercise a good stress reliever - at UC where I do my exercise they do 15 minutes of wellness at the end of each session (bliss). Hope this helps 😉☺
Hello Braveb I am just st 2 years past HER2+, bilateral mastectomy.
I get little purple dots on my skin all the time since chemo and taking Femara.
The dots appear especially if I have drank coffee or had a glass of wine, apparently a common side effect from your liver having to process meds’ and ‘toxins’.
The meds I now take now cause gastric reflux which in turn causes infected sinuses etc (according to my ENT).
Happy days 😁
