Re: Can stress cause BC recurrence

Thank you ladies for your wonderful advice, everything you say is so right, I’m trying hard now to think about all the positives the move would make, both our kids think it’s a good idea. Just trying now to pluck up the courage to contact the agent to come again and get the ball rolling. Thanks again.😊Xx

Re: Can stress cause BC recurrence

I was treated for BC in 2012,  since then I have separated from OH in 2016, had to sell the family home, and recently got divorced. So rather a stressful period in my life. But life has to go on. I've recently meet a lovely man so now looking to the future although the thought of BC recurring is still in the distant background. 

Due another yearly check soon which is always a worry, wondering if it will be back again.  But life has to go on or BC will have won,  you can't put your life on hold you have to look to the future and be happy in what every you do!

Re: Can stress cause BC recurrence

Hi Munchkin,
Well, we can’t put our lives on hold thanks to bc, but if it’s what you both want, then why not?
It may come back, it may not, but we can’t be dictated to by it & we can only do what’s best for us at the time.
From what I’ve read, there is no established link at all, it’s just one of those things.
Wishing you well with it all.

Can stress cause BC recurrence

I was diagnosed with BC January 2017, trying to move forward now and get on with my life. I still do get very anxious at times, fearing a return of cancer, sometimes i think its enevitable..it will come back, its just a matter of time, I know I shouldn’t think like that, I find it hard though at times to think positive. Which brings me to my other issue, my two grown up kids have moved out now and my husband and I are thinking on moving house to the country, part of me wants to, the other doesn’t, my main question is, moving house is stressful, even when it’s going well, I’m worried if I get overly stressed can it cause cancer recurrence? We’ve lived here 14yrs, so starting over again sounds quite daunting, but I don’t want cancer to put a barrier on this, don’t know really what to think or what I want.
