I had breast cancer twice, along with uterus cancer. My cancer is estrogen related. I had double masectomy,complete hestorectomy,within the last year. 8 yrs ago I had kemo & radiation treatments with lumpectomy. I am in need of support.The implants were rejected on the left side, due to the radiation damage to tissue. I have now a roller coaster effect emotionally as physically. I am 52. Mentally I am unable to have too many tasks, I get upset in a way of very nervous, & it gets confusing. Then I cry. I am having trouble coping with alot. Is there someone else with the similiar cenerio? Please e-mail me. I live in Lincoln NE

Hi Misty,
Im sorry about your cancer. Cancer is scary, treatment is hard and all of us find ourselves in your position, emotionally, at one time or another. I've been battling a rare cancer since 1987 (I'm 52) and I had an emergency total hysterectomy because of a cancerous tumor three years ago. I was nervous, very jittery and depressed for a while. Most hospitals have social workers to help cancer patients, check with your oncologist or your hospital. Therapy really helped me a lot. The survivors chat room here is a nice place for support too, people there have gone through similar things and are understanding and supportive.
All the best,
TereB

misty51,Now they think I may have Endrometrial cancer or ovarian cancer.I know how over whelming it is to deal with cancer before & afterwords.I joined a cancer group which helped.It helped to talk to others who`ve been through it & understood how it feels.Now I`m in a Depression Group.Have you ever heard of Bernie Siegel? He`s a ONCOLOGIST & WROTE 3 Wonderful books.The lastest one`s "How To Live Between Office Visits",The first 2 books are Love,Medicine & Miracles & Peace,Love & Healing. I had breast cancer on my right side(total masectomy)then I had to keep going back for lumps on the left side.They told me to come back everytime I felt a lump.Which was every week because I had fibroed cysts.I ended up seeing the same radiologist who said the same thing he had told me with the right breast,"Well you can wait 6 months & see""on the one IM not sure about" If I`D Listened the first time Iwould`nt be here now.I`ve been through a biopsy,2 masectomys,2 lithtripsys,appendectomy & 2 years ago I had a Gangerous Tumor removed from my colon,got Od`d on Morphine,stopped breathing. I DO UNDERSTAND!Please Email me anytime you need to talk.cindigoesindigo@netzero.net Love,Peace & Happiness To you Misty.YOU ARE NOT ALONE!I hope I Helped some.Best Wishes & Prayers.cindi
