Many thanks to all of you for your concern and support for my daugther who underwent a cervical cone biopsy.  ALL BENIGN!  In fact, she currently has NO cervical displaysia at all!  This surgery was done by my gynecologic/oncologist who did both of my OVCA surgeries, and I know he is extraordinarly thorough.  As you can imagine, we are all elated.  

As for me, I started my radiation last week for Stage 1 Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer.  I'm doing well, just feelng a little 'sensitivity' on the skin.  Will see the doctor each Monday to discuss how things are going.

Luv & (((HUGS))) to All of You!

I would never want what's happening to me to happen to them either. 

Good luck with your radiation...hope it will be easy.

Will you need to take any anti-hormonals or Herceptin? I'm doing both (just finished my 17th Herceptin infusion and have 4  more years on arimidex for stage 1 IDC)...both easy.

All the best,

Susan

What a relief for you both and a big load off your mind as you prepare for radiation treatment.  I hope and expect that the radiation will kick your cancer's butt to the curb!

glad your daughter is cancer free. I had radiation this summer..every day for six weeks. It was easier then I thought...have three tats.one on each hip and one on lower pelvic area where tumor was. I asked my Dr. if I could just be radiated and no chemo..she said sorry you need chemo too. Stay strong..val

This disease has the added gift of having us worry about our daughters and Grandaughters .

Monika, I am so happy for your daughter. I hope you get through radiation with flying colors and once again kick cancer in the a$$.

Hugs to both of you,

Alexandra

Your encouragement and support means so much!

So far, so good on treatments - 13 down, 25 to go!  Just a little skin sensitivity.  Dosage will be upped on the last four treatments.

Thank you, dear Friends!

Monika
