    Hello diane123 - from one okie to another I am so happy to hear your survival story! I've just been newly diagnosed so I'm not sure if I'll just have a lumpectomy or a double mastectomy but reading your post about the tattoo flowers helps me realize that no matter what I can still have a beautiful body. Thank you!

    To answer your qeustion I don't have an exact starting date for chemo yet but I think it will be around the 10th. I'm getting my echocardiogram, meeting with my oncologist and chemo class, and then my reproductive endocrinologist all on Wednesday just so I can be ready to start chemo. I'm so sorry that you have been diagnosed again but you won't let it win this time either!

    I'm thankful that I have so much support from family and friends. My only problem is that even though I have all these people, I have no one to talk to that has actually went through this before. I know I'll have chemo, surgery, and radiation an to be honest, I'm pretty scared. If anyone has any advice I'd love to talk. Thanks!

    Procedure or Surgery (Implant chemotherapy port): I'm so thankful that this went so smooth. Because of how they had to put in the catheter it feels like I constantly have a pulled muscle around my collar bone.

    Oh No (Diagnosed): I'm 29 years old and I have just been diagnosed with breast cancer. I know I'm not the youngest ever, but wow, what a shock!

      Hi Peanut: Cancer, at whatever age, IS a shock. But you really are young to be touched by this horrible disease. I was a 9 year survivor until 8/3 when I was diagnosed with BC again. Dreadful. I think this website helps quite a bit though. Many people with similar situations, helpful hints, and we ALL understand what you are going through. I had radiation, no chemo my first cancer, but this time will start chemo 9/18. I get my port on Tuesday. Good to hear your port surgery went well. I believe this device will help both of us be more comfortable as we get chemo and that the pulling sensation will settle down, eventually. When do you start chemo?
