Re: Roll Call

Hi all. My name is Tam. I was dx with melanoma in January and then DCIS in March. I've had 3 lumpectomies. There were some small invasive cells found with my 2nd lumpectomy and I am now facing a mastectomy. Thought it was time to join a forum.

So far I am doing OK. Have had my moments but mostly OK. I meet with my plastic surgeon tomorrow and we'll schedule the surgery. No radiation will be necessary but will need Chemo along with my interferon. It's going to be a fun year :-/.

Glad to found these boards. . .

Re: Roll Call

I ride my bike 8 miles round trip to work and back (couple times a week)... I'm run/walking 30 minutes at a crack... I really DO have my energy back! But let me say during treatment.. I was counting how many steps to the car debating if I could make it or not cuz I was soooooooo tired. I just cant believe its over. I'm so scared of it coming back, its hard to live like a "normal" person. It really changed me.. I have a lot more courage now...not afraid of much anymore ...except cancer.

Hugs!

Re: Roll Call

Hi everyone!! I am home for only one day..vacationing at my lakehouse and enjoying the sunshine!! I hope youre getting to enjoy some peaceful summer days as well..
Ive seen many new names here..sorry that you have had to come here to join this group..either having breast cancer or being there for someone else..but it has helped me tremendously to talk to other women experiencing some of the same issues I have...this is really a good place to come, get advice, and just vent to others who know first hand what it feels like to go through this breast cancer journey..
I will be back when summer is over..but I wanted to stop in and say hi to all my buddies here..I think of you all often!!
hugs,
cj.
