FANTASTIC news all round, Suzanne, especially that the Lymph node was clear. It's so good that you can raise your arm, keep up the exercise, but gently does it. Genuinely relieved for you!
The medication will probably be either Femara or Tamoxifen, either of which can cause side effects, (as can any of the chemo drugs), so please remember..... if you DO suffer any unbearable side effects, don't suffer in silence. There are other alternatives they can give you so DON'T be afraid to speak up!!!!
Cancer treatments have improved quite a lot in the last ten years and there is much more being done to ensure you have as little discomfort as possible. (AND RIGHTLY SO!)
If you have chemo, PLEASE put yourself FIRST!!!! Stay away from anyone with a cold or flu, or any contagious disease, especially kidlets as they are notorious carriers.
Advise all your friends and family that you are having chemo and for your sake they should NOT put you at risk as you will become extremely susceptible to any and all kinds of infections.
You are in my prayers and thoughts so know I am with you all the way. HUGE hugs, xxxxxx M
Oh! this is just such good news Suzanne. Must be such a relief for you, your husband and family. I, along with everyone else on here, wish you a gentle recovery and hope that you learn to take things slowly. I think us women tend to battle on regardless of what is happening to our bodies and forget to look after ourselves first!! My prayers are still being said for you, love Chris
We have a song we sing in church called:
"One more step along the world I go,
One more step along the world I go;
From the old things to the new,
Keep me travelling along with you:
And it's from the old I travel to the new;
Keep me travelling along with you."
I hope this verse keeps you going along. If you get a chance to listen to it, got to You Tube. Love Chris
Lovely to hear from you. Thanks for the update. Sending you lots of cyber hugs xx
