I thought I would add some details to my blog for those that are suffering or have suffered from breast cancer. I was diagnosed in Sept 2000. Underwent a lumpectomy, following by chemo and radiothereapy. They also removed some lymph nodes to check to see if it had spread. Luckily it hadn't. I was told that I was stage 1 (very early stage) and grade 3 (nasty). Chemo - I had 6 sessions of chemo usinf FEC (Fluorouracil also known as 5FU), (Epirubicin), (Cyclophosphamide). I cannot say chemo was nice. The first 3 sessions were ok just a little bit of sickness but after that bad sickness, severe tiredness, no energy, bleeding and sore gums, bladder problems. Radiotherapy - Didn't find that this was a problem at all. Have a couple of dot tattoos left on my chest area. At this time I was still tired from the chemo so not really sure if radio made it worse. Here I am a survivor. If you want to ask any questions please contact me and I will do my best to give you a truthful answer.
With only just over a week to go the excitement is increasing and panic is setting in. have we done this right? Is everyone ready? What do we have to do now? Is everyone going to be available to cover the postings? Are we ready?
Darn and my computer gets a virus. Swot that Trojan. Arrggghhh. Thank you AVG.
Anyway this will brighten things up a few more examples from the members of the Dust Team.
