    Procedure or Surgery (Double Mastectomy): still having serous fluid buildup at left breast site - has been drained 4 x already - not a big deal until the pressure of the fluid causes some discomfort, Seeing an ot for help with this - compression, massage etc

      Been there, done that, but it will quit draining and then you will heal faster, but I admit, it wasn't pleasant at first.

    Oh No (Cancer has spread/Metastasized): not curable but treatable - hard words to hear and to continue to process early on when you are not sure if the treatments undergoing are going to be successful. This is a chronic illness they say

      I'm having to process this now..10 years ago had stage iiib breast cancer and survived chemo.& radiation. So don't really fear chemo, but my care giving grown children (45 & 49) are very frightened. It's hard for them to accept
      the inevitable. My husband (a Parkingson's patient is very depressed and angry. I can distract myself with reading and playing on the computer. It's the effect my illness is having on my family and friends that gets to me.

      my mom has breast cancer and has survived breast cancer on the other breast and uterine cancer. I understand why your kids are scared, but I'm sure they want you to focus on yourself right now.
