Re: breast cancer

Hi @kymmy_elizabeth,

Welcome to this wonderful community. Sorry to hear about your cancer, tho there are good outcomes for breast cancer these days.
How have you been coping with the chemo?
I hope the surgery goes well for you. May I ask if you're having both breasts removed? Both of my older sisters have had breast cancer & both had a double mastectomy. I always thought I'd end up with breast cancer too, but instead I got kidney cancer.

I'm glad your hair is growing back already. I suppose it seems like ages that you've been without it tho. I hope you didn't find it too cold thru the winter. (Are you in Australia?)

Anyway, I just wanted to welcome you to the Community. Take care

Re: breast cancer

Keep up the good attitude & you'll do well 😉. I'm glad you've had a relatively easy time of it.

I'm fine thanks with no real problems at the moment. Just plodding along 🙂.

You take care as well.
