    Cancer is back/Recurred

    Oh No

    I don't like to recall what I experienced (I did not keep a journal and won't ever). I got my first breast cancer stage 1 in situ in 1999. The tumor was removed and I got a round of radiation. I did not take Tamoxiphen because I heard the main side effect was weight gain. the radiation doctor (who was mean and I did not like) warned me; "next time you'll have a masectomy" . I couldn't care less and went my happy way, convinced that it would never happen again...(I am not sorry because when the ca (which I call "the beast ") I met a patient who had taken Tamoxiphen and was there with me.. That's all for today, this is a little painful.
