    I'd like to find out if there are any women out there who have had cobalt radiation on their breast and if she has shrinkage in the breast affected? Mine won't stop shrinking. My doctor says it should have stopped along time ago. I had a reduction surgery to make my left side as small as my right, but since the breast is still shrinking I have to have another and I really don't feel like going under the knife again.

    Celebration (Remission): I celebrate every year, every year is another I have lived that the cancer has not come back or spread to anywhere in my body.

    Loss (Relationship ): I was in a 2 year relationship with a man who had lost his father to cancer. And when I told him that the doctor told me I had cancer, he told me he couldn't handle it and he broke off the love I thought he felt for me. I guess he did me a favor, who wants to be with someone who can't handle it when you get sick? I did meet a beautiful man right after I broke up with him and this man wanted to go to all the doctors appointments and radiation appointments with me. He blew me away. I was not used to having support like that. He just made me see that there are men out there in the world who are decent and who can stand up and be superman for you.

    Side Effects (Fatigue (tiredness)): I was told I could possibly get tired and they took my blood every monday to make sure my blood cells didn't drop too low. Boy was I ever tired,
