Hi everyone, this is my first time here,I am new at the computer too, so I hope this goes well. I get to be a veteran at breast cancer and treatment. Firt time 6/22/98, mastectomy, 6 mo of chemo, tram flap reconstruction 5/26/00, all went well until February 2002, mammogram showed small mass in other breast 5mm. Had lumpectomy followed by 6 weeks of radiation, just finished yesterday 4/30/02, will have a port put in next week and start chemo in about 2 weeks. Otherwise I feel fine and hope to get thru this as well as the first time. Thanks for listening.Emmi

    Hi Emmi,
    Welcome!! This is a great site and you will find that everyone cares about each other and they are all very helpful in any way they can be. I found it after I was almost one year out of treatment but it has still been a great blessing to me.My prayers are with you let us know how you are doing.

    Hi Emmi...welcome to the group! I'm really sorry you have to face this again. I just had my 1st post-treatment mammo today, and am pretty anxious. I think the waiting is the worst. I could say, at least you know what to expect this time, but I know that doesn't make it any easier to go through it again. Please try to keep a positive attitude through this. It sounds l;ike you are pretty positive, and I think that makes it easier to get through everything. We are all here for support, so either post a message here, or e-mail any time you want to chat. God bless...Cyndi

    Sorry to hear that it was found again and I am glad that you sound strong. I have had the strong chemo and the taxol chemo already - my cancer was advanced. I just had the mastectomy and it will be end of the year before they will allow the reconstructive. I am interested to hear about your reconstructive surgery. Did you lose strength? Physical therapy to improve it? any complaints?
    Good to hear from you and have a great day!

    I am sorry you have to travel further in this journey. I hope that having a place like this to come to might help you with your struggles along the way. I know coming here and dumping all we feel is a very good place to start sometimes. It is a chance to lift the weights that have been baring down.
    Be good to yourself,
