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.
They are faithful, loving and are just like children.When cancer strikes you pray but sometimes you just have to let go.I cannot put in words how this family feels today. We are broken hearted.Spice, my sweet angel, goodnight. Thursday 3rd December 2009.
