    I heard from my medical oncologist today. My BRCA test came back. "NEGATIVE!" I start my radiation treatments tomorrow at 1:00 pm. My anxiety level has risen.

      Take it one moment at a time. Celebrate your BRCA being negative today. Tomorrow you can deal with radiation treatment. Enjoy the moment and congrats. That is awesome news!

      Wonderful news regarding your BRCA testing...you will do fine during radiation, ask questions, use your creams and lotions as directed, eat well and get as much rest as you can (the fatigue seems to be cumulative and, for me, started around the fourth week)... We are all rooting for you.

    I have been away for awhile, mind is spinning out of control. I received a call from my surgeon on January 28th asked how everything was going. I told him I was due to start radiation on Feb. 3rd. He replied with the question of "have you talked to a medical oncologiest yet. When I told him no. He was so furious. The next day (which was my birthday) I received a call from Dr Lee we scheduled a visit for January 31st. That is when everything came tumbling down. She was just now looking at my records and discovered that I had a family history of breast and ovarian cancer. She decided to put everything on hold and do genetic testing. Now I am waiting for the results to determine where we will go from there. I have ran out of patience and my last nerve is holding on by a thread. I do have great news, my nephew is home from Afganistan. He arrived home on February 8th. He is so grown up and a totally different person. He left as a 19 year old kid and came back a 20 year old man. He will be 21 on March 1st. I am so proud of him but am glad he is back on American soil. Thanks for listening. Love ya all. Big hugs :)

    Great news, my friend Debra finally heard from the dr. Her biopsy came back. NEGATIVE. It is just a cyst. She is so excited. She says thanks for all the positive thoughts and prayers.
