Today was my last day of radiation...I chose to have a masectomy after the breast mri showed a 2nd lump. I thought, wonderful - I won't have to go thru radiation...wrong!!!...2 surgeries later, the doctor still couldn't 'clear margins'. Therefore, I ended up needing radiation......Today was a bit 'bitter sweet'...I've gotten to know the nurses & rad techs - and now I won't see them except for the doctor's appts...Anyway, cheers to me. (holding up a fake glass of wine <*** src="/sites/all/libraries/tinymce/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/***/smiley-wink****" alt="Wink" title="Wink" border="0" /> )...Though I haven't posted much, these discussion boards have been a great place to go since you all know how I feel and what I was going thru...It has been a great help...So, thank you all so very much - you lovely ladies out there...Cheers to all of us!!!

Congrats to you on finishin up with radiation. I too had experience a bitter sweet moment when I finished last Friday. I cried and hugged everyone.

But now onto healing and feeling better.

Take Care.

Congrats on finishing up your rads.  I finished my 3 weeks ago.  You will be surprised at how fast your skin will recover.  It has been pretty amazing.  I am slowly getting back the energy levels, but still have to watch that I don't push it too hard cause when I do, it takes me a whole day to recover.  So take it easy at first, rest, be kind to your skin and begin your healing.

Andi --  You did it!  Now, dust yourself off and move forward ..  Remember you are a WARRIOR, and have walked a path - many will never know.

Strength, Courage and HOPE for a Cure.

Ms. Pink Rose,

Thank you for the complement of my picture...I had 5 animals (3dogs/2cats), and my little Jack Russell is the only one I have let.  He was my trooper - at  my side at all times during my health ordeal this year....

Andi  :)
