Good morning everyone. I'm newly diagnosed with BC as of 7-16. What a whirlwind trip! Had ST Biopsy on 14th got diagnosis on 16th. Had right side Mastectomey on 24th. Am doing very well. Have type IIIA(T3N,MO). Three lymph nodes were positive. The biggest problem I am having is with my arm...numbness from elbow to shoulder and sharp pains when trying to put arm in sleeves. Some feeling starting to come back as of yesterday. My attitude is very upbeat and I have a wonderful support system of family and friends. Husband is having a hard time with it because I've always been the healthy one and he says it's just not fair. He's been through the mill...14 year survivor of Leukemia(ALL, heart attack, blood clots etc. Now he know just how tough it can be to be a caregiver. Not so much the extra work but the worry for your loved one and not being able to do anything about it. It's great to have a place to talk to others with the same problems. I go for my appt. with my oncologist on 8/14 to see what course of chemo/radiation we are taking. Am planning to have reconstruction in the near future, hopefully implant. Will also be getting a port. Any advise anyone has for me or anyone with same diagnosis please advise. Have a good day ladies!
