I'm Zoe, 36 from York. oh God it sounds like a dating profile (farthest from my thoughts) I'm booked on the forum this weekend and I cannot wait. Looking forward to meeting my chemo buddies in the flesh, seeing some YBCN favourites and making many new friends. I was dx in Aug, had a SNB in sept and had EC &tax chemo which finished officially yeaterday (last chemo on NYE). I'm booked in for a Mx with skin sparing Expander on 4th Feb and expecting rads after. Then a DIEP flap recon to finish. Looking forward to my Jolly!!!
Hi everyone, my name is Katherine. I'm 40 and was first diagnosed in June 2012 and had a mastectomy, FECin chemo and rads. I then had a recurrence in October 2013 and had lymph node clearance but thankfully don't need any more chemo as only 1 node was positive. I've not really used any of the online forums and I've just moved back to Manchester from Scotland so I'm really looking forward to meeting you all and sharing our experiences. Katherine
Hi I'm Janet, I'm 43 from Cheshire and was diagnosed in June 2013. I had a left breast mastectomy and lymph node removal and cancer was found in 9 of 17 lymphs. Thankfully it hadn't spread beyond that. I had FEC-T chemotherapy followed by radiotherapy and finished treatment 23 Dec 2013.
I am now taking Letrozole as I am post menopause following a hysterectomy 5 years ago. I am due reconstruction surgery this year and have developed lymphoedema in my left arm and hand.
I'm looking forward to meeting other young women at the weekend xx
