Thanks again for taking the time to answer my questions so fully and honestly it's so helpful.
Hope your next bone density scan results show you still have strong healthy bones.
Thanks for shareing your story. If you don't mind may I ask for some more info?
Re affected veins. Are you able to have blood tests easily from that arm now?
Also re Anastrozole.
Last week my oncolgist arranged for hormone profile bloods and a bone density test .
He thinks I may be borderline menopausal and that I'll be taking Anastrozole eventually.
I'm rather worried about its side effects. What checks/tests have you had once you were taking it.
Hi I'm Franci 50 years .
Had WLI and full auxillary clearance in April.. 4 out of 26 nodes affected. Also as margins
not clear will have mastectomy with free flap reconstuction after radiotherapy.
Just had my 6th and last Chemo a week ago. ( 3x FEC 3x Tax)
I am so glad it's over but still feel very scared about how long the after effects will contnue.
I know many feel they can work through Chemo after cycle two I felt too vunerable to do so.
I'm going back to work in 2 weeks and need to hear some positive feedback.
I know each one of us will be different ,
but, I'd like to be prepared for what's to come.
If there are any women who have had any of the following please tell me how it was for you.
How likely am I to loose my nails and when?
How long did it take for your arm veins to heal?
-Burning underarms and shoulders.
Will this subside or will it continue long term.
I know these topics may have been covered before but I'd really like some encouragement.
Best wishes to all out there
