    First of all I want to say bellow to everyone, let me tell you what is going on with me. 6 weeks ago I got this spot that looked like a blister well it opened up and I ended up back in the hospital. For some stitches. A week after that I got another one bigger one above where the other one was went to Dr. And he drained it and told me I have a bug that is causing this and I would have to have my expander removed and let it heal and then 3 no.down the road we can try again. Well last week I had the expander removed and they put in a wound pump, he said it would keep me from loosing the skin that is needed for reconstruction. So right now I have this pump hanging off me home health comes every other day to clean and change bandage. This really sucks!

      Wow, I would say that ranks up there pretty good on the Suck-O-Meter. Hope you get things healed up quick!

    Is that associated with St. Mary's not Tonics? If it is my best friend went there a year before me she was diagnosed. They never did a Pet Scan which would find if the cancer was anywhere else or had spread. After her treatment she was still feeling sluggish 4mos later she was worried they had not gotten it all. She asked me how they found the rest of mine I told her with the Pet Scan and she went back to them to see if they would do one, they told her a CT Scan would do it but Dr. CHARLES told me the scan would show some discolor in the scan then they would do the Pt Scan to see if it was cancer. To me they were just trying to cost her more money. I have a scan done every 4mos. Now. I am also going to be put on Xeloda for the rest of my life

    Thompson Cancer Center is a wonderful place to be treated they have a group of Doctors and you don't. Have to find them individually. I am two years Breast Cancer free I was diganosed with BRCA1 and have also caught stage 4 Liver Cancer and am now Cancer free. Stage 4 liver cancer is usually a 5 ye death sentence but they pulled me through them and God. There great!
