Oh No Associated with Invasive (Infiltrating) Ductal Carcinoma . Posted on January 7, 2013 View this journey (7 Experiences)

I was surprised-very surprised, but not especially emotional, and began making inquiries and doing research. I'm a trained Medical Librarian. My ex-husband's an MD and my daughter's a Paramedic, so I know it's useless to be paralyzed in these situations.

    Hi Aliza, Our cancers are no where near the same, but as I said to someone one this site before, you can tell me that cancer is stage III, and I can tell you that mine is stage IV, I had this treatment, and you had that treatment, and that's all good, but the end result is that both of our cancers can be beat!!! I firmly believe in positive thinking. At the same time I believe that you should not deprive yourself of your feelings. Since you are a medical librarian, your daughter is a paramedic, and your ex is an MD...as I was reading that I couldn't help but feel that you are holding back on your feelings. I certainly can be wrong, but if you are don't hold back. Get those feelings out and move on. If you are sad, go ahead and cry, get it out and move on. I cried several times in the beginning, but I look at those times as an emotional cleansing. Whatever your feelings are...get them out and move on. You should use all of that energy on your recovery process. I'm glad that you don't need anymore chemotherapy. What's next? Some scans? Take care of yourself and let me know how you are doing.
