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.
