Recently diagnosed with Breast Cancer

I was diagnosed on July 1, 2015, with Invasive Ductual Carcinoma, ER+, PR+ of the left breast.  I met with the surgeon last week and am waiting for his office and my insurance company to hammer out getting a Bilateral MRI done.

I hate the waiting and waiting.  I still  don't know what kind of surgery I need or what kind of treatment I need.  I just want answers!!!

Today I am feeling sad and frustrated.


New Player on The Team

Hi, Everyone like my title said, I am the New player on this team. I was diagnosed on April 3, 2015. I have since had a tag with debulking. was scheduled to take six rounds of chemo, so far has only had two because of my WBC dropping. waiting on approval for line sets. So far I'm doing good anyone else had Lunessta   shot?

Ache between shoulders (coldish ache) and in chest. Have had for 1 1/2 weeks now.


As the title says, I have been experiencing a cold "aching" which extends from my chest in front, to my backbone between my shoulders for more than a week now.  It's like a light pressure, an ache, and has a "coldish" feeling to it.

For the last couple of years I lose my breath easily just walking across the floor or bending over to pick something up.  My GP wants to test me for sleep apnea even though I've never complained about having a hard time sleeping and I am starting to think he is wasting my time. 

Husband found out has stage 3 A non small cell lung cancer with one lymph node with malignant cells

He found out end of March/15 he had 2 masses but took till now to diagnose fully after having pet scans,bronchoscopy,and  major surgery with intent to remove 2 tumors but could'nt cause the lung tumor is attached to a main blood vessel,so they had to back out and close him up.That was done June 18th; and just go a call few days ago that 30 radiation trearments start on July 30th.They wat to do 4 chemo treatments at same time;but we are terribly scared of the chemo.since my husband also has had fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue for last 14 years mostle

Where do I fit in?

Since the first abnormal mammogram three months ago, this has controlled my life.  Yet, I don't know if I really belong here.  I was diagnosis with stage zero, estrogen and progesterone positive ductul carcinoma.  I had a lumpectomy in early June and I have had 17 of 20 radiation treatments.  I will be on tamoxifen for the next five years, yet I still don't know if I belong here.  

Dreadful possible complications of thyroid cancer treatments

I was 34 when I was diagnosed to have papillary thyroid cancer, stage 1B. I immediately sought onco-surgeon who could help me remove the diseased thyroid gland. 4 weeks after total thyroidectomy, I undergone i131. Thereafter, I started to have my hormone replacement treatment. I started at 50mcg to 100mcg. Then after 3 months my levothyroxine was adjusted again to 100mcg MWFS 150 mcg TTHS... but I was still hypothyroid. On October 2014, I was hearing ringing on my left ear and experiencing extreme dizziness. It was found out that I have meniere's disease.

The Other C Word

I count myself lucky in that I had never vomited while on chemo. It took a carrot to make me do that. One raw carrot.

I've never had any problems with carrots, raw or cooked, in the past. But this one sent me on an approximately 30-hour odyssey of severe stomach cramps and the inability to keep anything down, solid or liquid.

Squamas Carsinoma of the Lungs

My husband had cancer of the neck and underwent surgery to remove it, afterwhich he he underwent a severe round of Radiation treatments.  He now has the above in his lungs and has undergone a few rounds of chemotherapy.  My he is doing well but he gets frustrated because he has lost his taste and has no saliva, and everything that he tries including water doesn't taste like it's supposed to.  He chokes frequently because of the loss of saliva, everything sticks to his throat.  He is basically living on ensure and a little clam chowder, minus the clams and potatoes and so


I would like to inform people that have had lymph nodes removed becuase of cancer, lymphedema could occur within month or years after surgery.   This is called Secondary Lymphedema.
