Just popped back to say it's exactly ten years today since actual surgery and have read your lovely comments. I'm so glad that my news can be of some help as I can vividly remember how desperately lonely that place can be just after a rotten post op result. Feeling a bit emotional now! Love to all. x
Had to answer this (having written a 'Ten years on' of my own - Secondary breast cancer, Inspiring stories). My cancer came back around the time of your orignal diagnosis (after 9 years in my case) so very well done to make 10 years and a big cheer from me.
Yay that just made me cry happy tears, have newly been diagnosed myself have had my surgery, 4.9cm lump and 9 infected lymph nodes!! Have been very down but you have given me more hope than any of my care team! Congratulations to you and here's to the next 10 years!!!!! Xx
Many congratulation, great to hear it celebrate by having some special me moments.
I have wondered and never asked before but how / when do they officially class you as being in remission from, I had MX, Chemo and then rads over a 6 month period from when I was diagnosed so when are you classed as clear from?
Look forward to the 20 year post
Diagnosed 3/3/03. Very glad to have made the ten year milestone. Had a 5cm lump and 12 affected nodes so if anyone out there is looking for a bit of cheering up, size isn't everything! Very best wishes and luck to everyone. X
