Hi Binner I am so pleased to have read your posting I to havent been on for a while as I had my last chemo 3 weeks ago. I saw the consultant the same day after chemo he said I was doing great. I feel fantastic I am just waiting to hear about a new job I applied for I went for the interview last week I didnt know weather to say about my breast cancer or not then I thought sod it its sink or swim. So during the interview I said to her I may as well tell you know before we go any further Ive had a masectomy and 8 sessions of chemo. She said to me snap so have I it was like a god send to me. She had had her BC the year before me so I was so glad I told her.I do still have a few aches and pains but nothing I cant cope with. I do have to start 5 years of Arimadex tomorrow I just hope the side effects arent to bad I just want to get back to normal living if thats possible I do feel my life is getting back on track now and I hope yours is to You Take Care Love Linda xxxxxxxxxxx

Lovely to hear your news - I had my sixth chemo today (two more to go, followed by mastectomy, rads then Herceptin), and I'm finally begining to see that chink of light in the end of the very long dark tunnel!
It's so heart warming to hear your story - like the other Julie said, it gives the rest of us so much hope too.
Lots of love to you
Hello Ladies, Sorry I haven't visited for awhile but wanted to share with you what happened to me when I saw my consultant yesterday.
Last time I saw her was in October last year. Very nice woman. Fantastic bedside manner. I'm always very jittery and nervous just before a check-up, emotional, crying at the drop of a hat.
While examining me she was telling me how well she thought I'd coped with everything and that just made me cry!!! Daft and soppy my husband says, she surprised me by giving me a cuddle and just letting me cry on her shoulder ( I'm crying now just thinking about it). She said it's good to have a cry, helps to accept and deal with a serious and profound situation. ( she lost me when she started using big words like profound). Where's this all leading you ask???
Well, it's leading to the fact that I NO LONGER need to see her!! God help me I'm almost there!!!! I still need to see my other consultant who did the surgery but that's only once a year. next visit in January next year.
I'm not quite sure how I feel at the moment, bewildered, a little confused, in amongst all that I'm starting to allow myself to feel that the light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter every day.
What I'm really getting at is that our emotions are very important, we should show them as often as we feel the need to!!!!!!
My LOVE AND VERY BEST TO YOU ALL
