I'm new to this page and just wanted other people to talk to. I am a 6mth survivor!!!
All through with Chemo and Radiation. My hair is growing back. Was on Tomoxafin and didn't feel comfortable with so I asked to be switched to Arimidex. Feel lots better about that. Have hot flashes and night sweats. Thats a piece of cake. Feels GREAT to survive. I just became a Grandmother for the second time. Life is good and God is great!

Just wanted to welcome you to this site. It is always a shame this is the way we have to meet but on the same hand it is a wonderful place to share experiences and feelings. I call it sharing and other times it can feel like your dumping but go ahead and do it. One must be able to relieve themselves of all the pain and the guilt, always trying to be the strong one is your failing body. Please know that we feel your pain and you and the others are not alone. We are all here for the support that can transpire through this incredible community of women. We all feel the strength and courage of others and helps us to get through our days.
Once agian welcome to you and the other newbies.
Take care of yourself,
Tara24242

I'm also new and am in about the same place as you are. Through with treatment!!! only tamoxifen and followups. Haven't had any side effects yet, but have only been on it for less than 2 weeks. Hair is growing back in finally and I'm so glad to be where I am. I have 3 grandsons and 2 daughters. Had bilateral bc, but it could have been worse. Good luck and keep a positive attitude, it makes all the difference!
