      Oh it WILL be all over for me. That I can promise!! After radiation I know I'll have tamoxifen and follow-up appointments but I'm not living in this (cancer) world any longer than I need to!!

      It ain't over when it's over. Unfortunately! I'm a year and a half (this week!) from my last treatment, but I'm far from being back to my old self. It took almost a year to diagnose all of the damage the chemo caused. Yes, there are days when I get so frustrated and say, "Enough already!" But, what will be will be. I'm alive and I'm cancer-free and if that means I'll never have the feeling back in my feet or ride a bike because my balance is fried , so be it. I'm here with my beautiful family and amazing friends and for that, I'm grateful. I keep reminding myself that it's a small price to pay for 40+ more years.

      B12 shots every 3 weeks will help. The breast area and under arm still feel numb; if I touch the area there is tingling--weird sensation. But I felt the same type of thing after I had a facelift--many years ago. That took a couple of years to get all the nerves back in shape--so I assume this will take longer because they took out 13 lymph nodes as well as the breast.
