    Milestones: Been a long road since dx in Oct 2015. 2016 was 7 surgeries and 8 doses of chemo.
    Losing hair and having it grow back a different color and thicker.
    2017 was getting "ME" back to the new normal. Had all doc follow ups and everything is GOOD!!! YEAH ME! Now I go this coming Tuesday and have my tattoo done on my left breast and I will have conquered this chapter in my life.
    Yes I am taking my preventive meds and doing follow-ups. It has been an adventure and I can say been there done that.

    I've had people come to me and ask questions. Breast cancer, chemo, and cancer in general. It's nice to know people feel comfortable enough to come talk to me about it.

    Now on with life and wait to see what God in store for me now.....

      Congratulations to you for going through all of this and coming out on the other side. That's great that you are able to pass on your experiences to others. I have always told everyone that if they have questions, I am willing to answer any that I can. Check in every now and then. Enjoy your life. Take care.

    Procedure or Surgery (PORT TAKEN OUT): Easy. Was awake. Port was in my right arm. They told me that people can leave them for up to two years and I said NO I am DONE. They said ok and now no port. :)

    Other Care (lung biopsy): Was opposite side then the cancer but was a month after reconstructive surgery. I wish we could of spaced them apart more but end of year was going to get us. Stay in hospital was only 3 nights and they found Histoplastmosis. It is a fungus that grows in the Ohio Valley area region and they took all of it out and it is gone so nothing to worry about there. yeah

    Procedure or Surgery (Breast Reconstruction (Implant)): I had reconstructive surgery done and a month later had a lung biopsy on same side no agree on questions above. My left breast is where cancer was and my right breast got a lift but my right lung is where I had the biopsy done.

    I just happen to come across your post. I am 46. Had/have stage 2 breast cancer. Just my left breast. I am toward the end of everything. I have some reconstruction yet to do.
    Keep your head up and as one doctor told me "Breast cancer by its self won't kill you" If it travels to other places then thats another story.

    Take care and smile:)
