My daughter is having her breast reconstruction done on Monday. Pray all things go well with her. She is on no medication and has had no chemo or radiation right now for her cancer. That scares me but not my choice or what Dr's recommended for me all those yrs. ago. I guess treatments change but I don't like it and I am scared for her.

Praying all goes perfectly with her and that your sweet mama's heart will find comfort and peace. There's not too many things more powerful than a mama that locks arms with Jesus.

Hope all went well with her op on Monday and that you are less scared for her. Its always difficult when our children how ever old are going through something different that we have no control over.

Thank you...I know you are a great prayer warrior. I am still having pelvic cramping and discharge after my D & C surgery in Jan. Will be going in a group of our homemakers in our county to a cancer ctr for a free vaginal ultrasound and if there is anything not right I hope they can clarify for me before I have to see a specialist. Robin has a very positive attitude in her situation. I'm thankful for that too.

I was diagnosed last May with breast cancer in my left breast! I had a lumpectomy done in June and then drs recommended chemo plus drugs plus radiation! Me and my best friend who is an RN did nothing but review data and studies and chose to do the 19 treatments of radiation only! Even studies 30 years long out of Sweeden said doing the year and a half long chemo/drug/radiation only gave me a 1% higher chance for longtime survival versus just doing radiation alone! That was in my case, and we know no 2 are exactly alike! I was at such peace when I made my choice after a lot of soul searching and LONG talks with God! I also had 7 lymph nodes removed and I just had my almost full year after cancer mammogram on Tuesday and it came back as no cancer anywhere to be seen! They said 4 more years of oncolgist/ breast surgeon appointments and as long as I stay cancer free then they will deem me as beating cancer! I am sending prayers for her and you and your family! I just know she will do fine and be that much stronger after! Prayers from PA

Thank you Lori....I stay in constant prayer. Her side of my family has left the Lord but she knows I have people praying for her. Their life revolves around exercise and healthy practices but it didn't stop her from getting this. I gently try to remind her God is in control and to pray she & her husband has made the right decision, listening and reading about it all.

Hi Patti...with mastectomy and no lymph node involvement, it is common that no chemo or radiation is needed...usually just AI medication daily. I hope things go well for Robin on Monday...so glad she has your support...

Kim, was waiting to update you. She did have lymph node involvement on both surgeries---the lymphectomy and then double mastectomy but her Onco was low. Keep her in your prayers. She is very active and they've been working a lot on the estate they bought a year or so ago.

We know there has been great progress in this area of cancer treatment. Hang in there despite the newer ways! The low death rates for this cancer now are phenomenal. Try to be happy for her that she is taking this next step. I will be praying with you for her well-being, as I'm sure many others here are praying, too. So glad YOU are still here beside her to hold her hand.

Yes, in the days back in 1991 I was stage 2 to 3 and recently looked up the type of cancer I had--Medullary--it was the rarest of an Invasive type and I never knew that. It stayed encapsulated so no spread outside of that. I was 38 yrs/old--ha, you can calculate my age now! Very glad to still be around for support.

Thank you. I reckon the Oncologist will supply her with what she needs or if she needs. I am just the mother, full of concern.
