    Celebration (Finished treatment): From the initial annual mammogram to the end of the Mammosite radiation it was 6 weeks. Didn'd hit me emotionally until weeks later.

      I think I am experiencing something similar...in one month's time I went from initial exam to mastectomy. It was all such a whirlwind, and I understand why...the cancer (DCIS) was high grade and aggressive. But now that I'm healed I am dealing with lots of emotional ups and downs.

      Two weeks ago I had the implant exchange and right breast reduction. Now that I am almost done (waiting to have the surgical tape removed and for the breast to heal) my emotions are all over the place. What the heck. I should be happy, right?
