    Hello, many of us who have experienced cancer and cancer treatment first hand are able to share our unique experiences, it is nice to several medical professions answering questions on the sight as well. Thanks for joining :)

      Hi tooyoung, I too was diagnosed at 44yrs and I thought I was fairly fit watching what I ate and running 4times a week so I couldn't understand why me!!! But on the plus side you are in a better physical condition to cope with treatment ! Have the strength to do what you have to and focus on the future!! Do you have children? Mine kept me going on bad days xx

    Hi, Till, I'm only about 3 hours away in Springfield. Did you have reconstruction? I chose not to have it. Definitely a hard decision. Either way.

      It was a very hard decision. I had cancer in one breast but I chose to have both removed. I didn't want to go thru it a second time. I had reconstruction. Shortly after the first surgery, my husband passed away unexpectedly. It has definitely been a rough road..

      Sometimes life sucks even more than we anticipate. Recovery from these surgeries is no cake walk. Have other family members stepped up to help you? We're you BRAC +?

      Wow, you have been through a lot! How are things going for you now? I am just going in today to find out more about my cancer and discuss treatment. Went in for just a routine mammogram, never expecting they,d find something. Thank you for sharing your story. Its very encouraging to have people to talk to! Is that your horse in the picture?
