Hi, I'm new here and have been too busy to consistantly lurk! I have read some great info though! I WAS a 13 year survivor until last month. I had a modified radical mastectomy, chemo and radiation in 1996-1997. Last Thursday, I had a Simple Mastectomy and Sentenal Node Biopsy. (regarding that, I wonder if guys had needles stuck in their privates if they would be a little more sensitive with their needles???) I will probably get the results of that this Friday.....I hope.
I can not believe the bruises that I have on my body! My arm, of course my chest, and also my belly and even on the previous mastectomy side. What's up with this?
In reading some info, maybe my belly bloat is really constipation? I've only been taking Tylenol since Monday. Before that it was the Vicoden and anti-nausea pills. The opiates make me throw up!
I am so uncomfortable with this belly bloat that I was wondering if I had some other awful cancer going on that needs to be looked at. Too much info, but I AM burping and passing gas. :-)
I hope that you have some info to help!
