    I have had breast cancer diagnosed in April 2012, had lumpectomy and mastectomy and was diagnosed "CANCER FREE" mid November this year. I have recovered totally (except I am now only one real breast, but during treatment (including surgery, chemo, etc. I did not vomit, had no pain or bleeding after surgery......I guess, or rather, am sure that the Surgeon who operated on me did a great job operated on me and his team of doctors, plus navigators and nurses, in fact, the whole hospital made me feel so confident that I feel great after each visit and have started to anticipate the next treatment session with eagerness.
    May I wish you all the best and please believe me, prayers help a lot. I am very glad to want to pray for eveyone of you. I understand how sickness makes one unhappy, but please believe me, I have had and endured and recovered from many serious illnesses all my life. Before breast cancer, in 2009, I spent two months totally paralysed and was on a feeding tube for two months in a hospital and was sent to a nursing home. In two months I was sent to a nursing home and finally walked out of the nursing home with a cane,recovering at home with oxygen most of the time. In 4 months the doctor tested me and I did not need oxygen anymore.

    I have had three surgeries and 12 chemo. During all that time had been upbeat and the surgeon is wonderful. not only did he given me any pain the masectomy was perfect because I went home feeling great the next day and was,
    practically no pain the stitches are barely visible. Funy enough, I had 14 sessions of chemo and did not throw up at
    all and instead gained weight. Wow!!!!

    I shall be having my 7th chemo tomorrow. I am quite pessimistic about how it is going for me. I've almost lost all my hair and my immediate family seems to be getting tired of my slow progress. I do understand, but unhappy about it.

    good morning!
    This is a great day. I feel not too bad after the 1st chemo on Thursday. I did
    not have adverse feelings of vomitting (perhaps such will come later as the therapy continues. The only other thing is that I still have pre-invasive cancer which need to be eliminated. I have absolute confidene in my Doctor and God.

    Having to wear a drain and port-a-cath and hearing more cancer should be removed but details unknown is pretty nerve-wrecking and do impact everyday's trial to cope with unknown daily living is tedious. i wish this can be over soon. this is driving me up the wakk,
