My names is Sharon and I was diagnosed with HER 2 BC Jan. 11,13. I just had a double mastectomy Feb 15,13 with reconstruction started. I will be starting my chemo/herceptin treatments around the first week of March.
I'm a little afraid (ok alot) of the chemo treatments and the chance that this crap comes back. I don't know answers yet and still very confused on all.
I just lost my sister to stage 4 cancer (not bc) 12/24/12 and still have a lot of emotions running wild.
I don't know what questions to ask, what to expect after treatments and will I be able to be MY normal self when all said and done. See I work horses for my living. I lift 110# bales of hay, 50# sacks of feed, muck stalls, give lesson's and train horses.
On the good note, my oncologist is a horse person who supports me being around my horses but I understand "limits"
Things on the internet are scary and really put me into a depression (almost as bad as seeing my chest for the first time :( ) and I hope that by reading some of the threads here may set my mind at ease.
