Re: Can’t make a decision about treatment

Hi NikNak73,

Re: Can’t make a decision about treatment

Oh man, you've got so much to deal with xxxx

From the BC side of things, I'm pretty much the same as you. I only have to deal with the rads and Tamoxifen and that all seems ok at the mo.

I have no words of advice I'm afraid, but hopefully someone will see your post and offer an insight for you.

Re: Can’t make a decision about treatment

Hi Skylark, I can't offer you any direct feedback but just wanted to say that I am also feeling quite nervous about all of the treatment to come - and I don't have other life changing conditions to worry about! It's so difficult to know and the long list of side affects doesn;t help. I hope you have found someone to talk it through with who can help xxx

Re: Can’t make a decision about treatment

Plus I’ve had a mega dose of radiation when I had thyroid cancer in 1992 which may be linked to the breast cancer

Can’t make a decision about treatment

This is my first post. I had a 17mm ER8, PR8 grade 1 invasive ducal carcinoma plus DCIS. It was removed with a good margin and no lymph involvement. I had a massive haemotoma so a further op to remove it followed by 5 weeks of near daily trips to hospital for wound packing. Ive been recommended radiotherapy plus tamoxifen. I also have a rare endocrine condition which means I can’t go out alone as I have suddenly crashing calcium levels which is life threatening. I don’t know how I’ll cope on either treatment, I live in the edge as it is. Doctors don’t know how I’ll react. Has anyone else with a rare condition been through this? xx
