    I hope you called the doctor right away. I know if the wound is open and gets infected it can cause you have another operation.

      Hi, Mary007.
      I was at the doctor's office when it was discovered. I am scheduled for surgery to repair it next Wednesday.

    Hi Joi: I use Aquaphor healing ointment still even after my chemo because I get nosebleeds anyway. You can find at CVS. During chemo, I had more nosebleeds and longer nosebleeds than usual and used Aquaphor at night before going to bed and when I got up. Use with Q-Tip. I also used a humidifier in my bedroom near bed, which helped. I would also use saline spray which is highly recommended. If you get a nosebleed, you might want to have AFRIN no drip Nasal Mist. This shrinks blood vessels(sp?) and stops bleeds quicker. After spraying nose with Afrin, pack with Cosmetic Puffs, which look like cotton balls, but they won't pull off scab like cotton balls can. You can find Cosmetic Puffs in Bed, Bath and Beyond. (Don't overuse the AFRIN, because it may give you a rebound effect, but it is necessary sometimes.) I have had many bad nosebleeds in my life due to HHT an inherited blood vessel disease so I consider myself an expert. ha ha. Also, stay away from heat in car blowing in your face. Just make sure it is blowing on your feet.
    You are lucky to be Stage I. Good luck in your remaining treatments. I am glad you are only doing 4. God Bless :)

    Hi Tammylynn: good luck to you on your surgery day. I had bilateral mastectomy too and am so glad. I was eating in a restaurant within a week. After getting drains out. Just take one step at a time and it will be ok. I will be checking back. Take care!

    Thanks for writing leepenn. Sounds like had a long rough battle. My oncotype Is 21 and there was nothing showing in lymph nodes. My stage was 2 but grade 3 which is not good. 4 rounds should help recurrence be 2 % . They are not sure how much extra 2 rounds will help. Goog luck to you, HUGS,
