I completed my breast cancer treatments March 1, 2003 (had a lumpectomy with re-excision, 6 mos. of CMF chemo followed by radiation). Hooray for being finished! Now I know I'll sound like an ingrate (I'm truly so happy to be healthy), but how long 'til I'll be feeling like my old self? I'm still suffering from a lot of discomfort in the radiated area, all my leg joints are inflamed and have me limping around like some kind of pathetic dipso (my oncologist tells me this is not that uncommon for some women following chemo) and general tiredness. I'd welcome hearing from others on their experiences. Thanks.
