    Celebration (Finished treatment): JULY 7th,no more chemo the cancer is gone,,trust in the lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.."profiting from trials"..count it all joy when you fall into various trials.knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience.if any of you lacks wisdom,let him ask God who gives it to all liberally and without reproach,and it will be given to him.But let him ask in FAITH WITH NO DOUBTING,for he who doubts is like a wave of the driven and tossed by the wind..

      I had a double masectomy with spacers put in at the same time for reconstruction. I felt pretty good after a few weeks. One word of advice. Do the exercises to stretch the muscles they give you. Don't push yourself but do them. I had periodic soreness but otherwise it wasn't that bad. And I love my new boonies.

      I also had double in March due to nature of cancer. Non-affected breast had pre-cancerous cells so it ended up being a real good choice for me. I am not having reconstruction at this time and may not ever (I am 67 so it is a diffenent scene for you who are younger; I probably would have at your age). Healing for me was very short but that was helped, I am sure, by not having implants. The non-affected side was a "non-event" almost. The affected side was a little slower due to lymph node removal but overall not as bad an experience as I anticipated. Dealing with implants in another issue which I did not face. Most of my "breast friends" did have implants (all are in 30's, 40's and 50's). A little more issues but it seems the right thing for them to do and worth the extra issues. Again, if I were younger, I would have also had reconstruction. Good luck and be sure to look for local support groups also if you have any close to you.

    Drug or Chemo Therapy (Chemotherapy): Chemo was every 3 weeks,and was a nightmare for me.So very hard to take care of 3 kids while you are so sick with little if any one to help you.I dont think it would have been that bad if i didn't have to take care of my 3 year old everyday..that was the hardest part for me.PRAY,PRAY,PRAY,,GOD IS ALL YOU HAVE TO HELP YOU AND HE DOES HEAR OUR PRAYERS..:)
