    Finished treatment

    Celebration

    I survied breast cancer. I was stage two when I found out I had cancer. I went through 8 treatments of chemo and 33 days of radiation. My hair is finally growing back but not soon enough! But I don,t sweat the small stuff any more and have become closer to God. It has been one year and I thank God every day. The only thing I wish I had told my doctor is that if it had spread to the lymph nodes to do the mascetomy Well it did spread to the lymph nodes only two but he took eleven. I think I will always worry that it will come back.My breast is still disclored from the radiation and they are different sizes now. Very hard time finding bras to fit. I am going to look into surgery to see if it can be fixed but most will it be covered by insurance.
