Hi, I am Tiger,I am new to this site but by the looks of it you are a very supportive and communicative group of people.I have stage 4 met breast in the liver, I had a mastectomy in Jan 00,and have been doing chemo since then, at first it was working,but after seven doses of the same chemo the two tumours on my liver have increased considerably in size.I am currently doing a weekly infusion of Herceptin and once every three weeks dose of Taxol, I have heard great things about this stuff,if any of you have had it or know of a story of someone else I would love to hear from you. I am strong and healthy and stubborn as a mule, my friends and family forget about the cancer because I am constantly on the go and so healthy, the only way anyone knows there is something different about me is because I am bald.I am comfortable now going out in public without my prosthesis, I find it a pain in the behind,or arse as we Maritimers would say.I am mailing from Canada,any other Canadians out there?eh? I am also interested in any input anyone has on reconstruction, I have a "mommy tummy" from two c sections and I would love to use that and have the Diep flap done.My husband says he does not care if I have any breasts at all as long as he has me, but I am a size 42 d and it is very noticeable when I go without my boob.I wish you all well in your fight and I look forward to hearing from you.Stay strong and stay positive,we will win!!!love from Tiger.
