    Thanks, Lorie. Site has glitches now and again...but Greg always gets everything back on track. Even tho I have tested clear for over 9 years now...I keep checking in on WhatNext. It was so helpful to me and now I hope to help others...even if it is just to let them know I lived thru stageIV. I have 3 friends/family just diagnosed in the last couple months with BC. It is relentless for sure.

    Hi Leslie I tried to like your answer under the post of effects of radiation but it was in Black letters and would not let any more likes go through. I'm glad we have this way of letting somebody know

    hi Greg, from time to time I try to answer posts and when I hit the comment button nothing happens. I keep trying but it's useless. This happened on your recent post about any other conditions we might have. I posted about the aortic stenosis and you were the only one that answered and I'm trying to reach anybody that I can. Is there anyway you can post the reply I typed below just saying it was from Lorie?

    Aortic valve stenosis which I posted under that title last week.Not sure if the radiation caused it but it is one of the side effects. Cardiologist said that open heart surgery is the answer when it gets worse but I've heard there is another procedure called TAVR and I'm anxious to hear if anyone else has faced this diagnosis
    another issue is a indeterminate finding of possible lymphoma in a polyp during a colonoscopy. I have to have another one but I'm putting it off. Had a scan afterwards and it was clean.
    I really sailed through the lumpectomys and radiation but these two findings have kind of floored me I'm not used to all these doctor visits and I'm very inquisitive and don't get good answers from the new Drs and then have to go for second opinions. I don't mean to sound like oh poor me but it's all so new to me cuz I was in good health and just needed to vent.

      Thanks, I have had that problem too, I'm not sure if there is a reason yet, but I will turn that ticket in. Another way to do that would be to copy the link address, then paste it in a browser window and you would go straight to that question on the site instead of through the email app. It always works that way.

      Ydnar2xer, sorry about the thyroid. Is the medicine keeping it at normal levels? I think you are right about it affecting other parts of the body. breast that was radiated is three times as hard as the other one after 3 yrs. Same with You?

      Lorie, yes the Neurologists said it was caused by the radiation. I felt it happening and it only lasted for 10 minutes. But then I didn't go to the Doctor for two days. They fussed at me a lot for that.
