Diagnosis of 2 tumours in left breast June 2017. Mastectomy with DIEP reconstruction in August 2017 (Royal Marsden) with full lymph node removal. 4 X EC and 4 X Tax chemo (Reading Spire). 15 X radiotherapy (Windsor Genesis). Finished invasive treatment June 2018. Took Anastrazole for a couple of months but had lots of pain in finger joints. On Tamoxifen for a while then going to try Exemestane.
Why me? Try me!
Lesley Helen thank you for starting this thread, what a great idea.
I’ve enjoyed all the thoughts so far,
I had hoped for some words of wisdom to post but nothing springs to mind yet. I’m sure it will and when that happens I’ll share it here.
In the meantime I will carry on being inspired by others!
May the force be with you
