    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    First I had mammogram, same day was told ultrasound needed to confirm. Told doctor, go ahead tell me, I can take it. Feeling very accepting of the worst. Then when he told me the big picture..things just rolled out after that. First came the two biopsies, sterostatic, and another. Then two surgeries, two weeks apart. Now on chemo for 8 treatments. Radiation to follow, for 33 treatments.

    Procedure or Surgery

    Did not expect all the different steps involved, afterward. Constant events since Sept. 9th, 2011. Felt like I wasn't hearing some kind of end, or finish was in sight.

    Went as Expected: Agree
    Minimal Recovery: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    I am in second phase of chemo drugs. Using paclataxel for two more sessions. Noticing more joint and bone pain, neck shoulders. Sores on back of legs that don't heal. Longer to recover, it seems.

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Neutral/NA
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Neutral/NA
