    My doctor did not understand my diagnoses because he was not an oncology surgeon. I was not informed if my BRCA1 gene or I would have had a mastectomy nit a lumpectomy! To late surgery is done nobody had time to discuss many options this cancer is the most aggressive of Breast Cancers. What mow?

    External radiation

    Radiation

    I should not be doing thus but I am walking through this beside myself. Who is that looking back at me. I am bald, swollen from steroids in chemo, and my boob is on fire and itching so bad. I always in ER due to coughing, congestion, I am riddled with fatigue. Radiation makes reconstruction very difficult and my doctors insists this is my only option or I will die.

    Painless Experience: Strongly Disagree
    Minimal Side Effects: Disagree
    Minimal Impact to Daily Life: Strongly Disagree

    My childhood friend Hope Ross was diagnosed 3 months before I was and I buried her. I cannot believe this we were experiencing our Fight For Life together. And suddenly we found out hers spread to her bones, & there is 3 very large tumors in her brain. This not what we expected why did the doctors not see the other very obvious tumors. Could it be because she has no insurance? They won't give her Medicaid because no kids in her home. She doesn't have a home. Know she does because my friend died and I believe she walked home with Jesus. It is shocking. I am Soooo scared. Pray for me.
