Oh , how lucky you are with your partners!, because you've been together for a long time...........probably. As for me, I had a relationship for six months, and suddenly, after he knew, he said he couldn't stay with me in a near or longer future, just said "i didn't suit him", maybe, maybe not, and assured me it had nothing to see with the illness......difficult to believe, just after St Valentine's day, when he gave me such a nice and engaging present, and said just a couple of weeks ago, "we were a couple"......... - So, I guessed, it was too difficult for him to accept me like this or imagine the possible consequences especially because i had a "masectomy"........i don't really know, but can understand, it must be difficult to see a woman operated with one breast left! however, as I really accepted my illness and the consequences, I couldn't really understand other people who didn't accept the "new" me , just as I was...........it made no difference to me!!!! I also noticed the Men's reaction when I said I had breast cancer.........just a reluctant reaction!!!! i don't speak about it now, but, i'd like to have Men to say what they feel about it, how they can react and why, even if I know that everybody is different..........it seems that most men react as if we were not women any longer!!!? but why? please answer me; Thanks a lot if you do.

hello; - I've got the same, but everyone is different and reactions are different too.......For example, they decided I won't have any radiotheraphy, but my protocole seems the same as you........ - reactions different, .................ask your doctor for problems, my reactions are not bad so far (2snd chimio), , after I'll have 12 taxon every week..... - Don't think too much about it and live as usual in between, make yourself happy...........take pleasure...! Relaxation may do you good as well...me, I've been practising yoga for a long time, I've started again after my operation (April 4th), it's getting OK, and I practice cycling a little and gardening a little for pleasure or painting, or sudoku, or .......music! Take care, and stop worrying.....(that's the best therapy) Patricia.
