    Misdiagnosed

    Oh No

    Originally I was diagnosed with stage IIa ICD Breast Cancer and the Dr. really didn't feel an urgency, well then I was examined by a Cancer Surgeon and he said I had been misdiagnosed and was actually diagnosed a month later after the original and after numerous tests, etc...with Stage IIIC Inflammatory Breast Cancer which had spread to the Lymph Nodes and the skin...Was blindsided by that info, but in good hands now and currently going thru Chemo, then double Mastectomy, followed by Chemo, Radiation and then my Reconstructive along with Hormone Therapy...

    Chemotherapy

    Drug or Chemo Therapy

    Getting the Chemo isn't the bad part for me, it's after with the side effects...I have to get a Neupugen shot everyday for 12 days after which causes a lot of bone aches, along with the side effects from weakness, nauseau, emotionalness, achy, out of it, light headed, dry mouth, yucky taste, lack of appetite, screwed up taste buds, tiredness, etc...and of course losing the hair, etc...too...

    Easy to Do: Agree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Disagree
