I was diagnosed with stage one breast cancer. I had a lumpectomy and am finishing up 33 days of radiation and will then go on an estrogen blocker drug. Not sure which one yet. I quit smoking three years ago and went from a size 8 to a size 14 in no time. I asked my radiation oncologist if this is why I got breast cancer. She didn't say yes, or no, but told me that estrogen lives in fat cells (my tumor was estrogen positive). So now I'm on a quest to lose these 25 pounds so it doesn't come back. Exercise is not my friend so that's what I'm working on now. Any comments.
