Cancer: Breast board

Survivor, come back! Your sisters are here to support you. My diagnosis came in April 2007. I had a lumpectomy and am now finishing up my 30radiation therapy treatements. Arimidex is next. I do have some concerns about the drug, but I want to live so by God's grace, I'll continue one day at time. I had Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma (head) in 1999, benign tumor in auditory canal 2002 (Acoustic Schwanoma) which caused me to have balance only on one side, & a fixation/fusion back surgery in 2004 that caused a bloodclot to damage nerves. I'm still kicking and enjoying my family. Don't take ALL cancer stories to heart because each of us is different and I've found that lots of people want to have the "biggest and baddest" tumor, so beware. Your doctors are your best source for medical info. God Bless.
