Biography

UPDATE: December 2011. Status is holding as I enter into my 5th year of survival for 2012. Side effects relatively small, tired at times and mild bone pain. Quite amused at my own forgetfullness, making my husband crazy looking for things I have lost and found. Making sure I take my meds as prescribed and followup scans and Oncology appts. as scheduled. UPDATE: August 2008. Saw Oncologist who confirmed spread of cancer to my spine T9 & T10 also T6 and L3 show some abnormality. This is a comparison to the other 3 bone scans - 1st being July 07 right after lumpectomy. My surgeon prescibes this test for every breast cancer patient. Probably a precaution, which in my case was a good thing. I am not sure what is going to happen next other than another Mammogram and Ultra sound of my breasts in Sept., another bone scan and CAT scan in Nov. so this might be where they find more. God forbid those cells keep mulitplying. It's leap frog at its' finest game. I feel over anaylized, overpricked, overradiated but somehow glad that I live in Canada where it is all FREE. My private insurance pays 80% of all my drugs as well as massages, chiro, physio, dental, and so on. Why do you think we have a waiting list for immigrants? Not because they love the winter here! So for now I wait but I live. Oct. 09. Bone scan and CT, Oncologist's report at the end of the month. Whoopee, I can hardly wait. I still have my sarcasm working.

Spine

Feeling sometimes bitchy I put that down to arimidex. I hate the revisiting of menopause, night sweats, etc. Sometimes I just feel tired and can't keep up. UPDATE AUG/08. Not as tired anymore, but the rest is the same.
