Cancer: Breast board

Hi Ladies

Just checking in. Hope everyone is enjoying their Memorial Day wkend!

CJ, thanks for the kind words re my mom. Yes, she is a tough lady. She never did recur, which I find amazing, because she never had chemo or any anti-hormone therapy, only did the single mast and had a large tumor. She is now in her 80s.

I did stumble upon a remedy for my hot flashes only a few days ago: I've had to take BP meds recently, D/T losing all my hormone protection. Dose recently upped to twice/day (Altace). When I increased the dose, my hot flashes went way down. - Yey!!! - I can finally sleep and feel "almost normal"!
I know the Catapress patch is supposed to help hot flashes, so maybe other BP meds, can help as well.
