Hi you don't say to much in your post. You must be down in the dumps. Mine came back after 3 1/2 years, a new cancer ,not a recurrence. I felt betrayed by my body. Was depressed and ready to give up fighting. After about 2 weeks of feeling sorry for myself, I decided that I can make it again. I am on chemo now, had a lumpectomy and 34 radiation treatments. I am doing fine. You will too. Oh at times it is very hard but we have to go on. The first time around I had a mastectomy and then reconstruction, then chemo. When I was done with that I became a certified volunteer for ACS. It helps when you can talk to someone. Your doctors and nurses can help you deal with this or refer you to someone. Or you can come to this site, we all have been there and at least know what it is like. You must think positive , decide on your treatment and go from there. Do you have family ? I wish I could take your pain away, but I can't. I can only hope and pray for you that you stay strong and can face this whole ordeal again. If you want to e-mail me you can, we are all here for you. Please keep us posted. I will say a special prayer for you tonight. Lots of hugs and prayers coming your way. Take care, be strong, God bless you.
Love Emmi

Hi, honey, don't be down, we are all here to help you and believe me we will! Now, is this a recurrence? A new cancer? or a metastasis? You need to know this if you do not. We need to know too. Hang in there and re-post with more details so we can help you. Gentle hugs, Shirlann
