I received my diagnosis last Nov. Stage 1 breast cancer; the tumor was about 1 centimeter in size. I had a lumpecteomy; was scheduled for 9 chemo treatments; once every three weeks (made it through four and became allergic to the chemo). I had to quit chemo; but the chemo I was on did not make me sick at all. Now I am having radiation treatments. During this time I left my fiance and moved out on my own. I am scared stiff of a recurrence and can't seem to get past this fear. No matter what I read; it seems like it returns in 3-4 years. ANy suggestions in how to get over this fear and get living? Thank you.
