Hi I'm new here, I'm had breast cancer at 45. every thing stared week after Halloween. I turned 46 after after my second surgery.I had my right Breast removed. 4 out of 9 limp. but they were like pin mark.
I went to work when I could even bald, I wore a hat when it was cold.
work a week off a week.
July 10th I was all done, when I went to see my surg. I had brought up surg. he had asked me why no one sent me up to see about the prost. boob. well he gave me a prescription for one.And when I went up there I was told I have not met my deductions yet.so I'm almost 2 yrs. come this July 10th.
and as of last october I now have no insurance, my husband had to drop it the company change who they were with and he was unable to afford it.
I wear a sports bra. I had thrown all my bra's out!
someone at work brought me to of these pads she said try these. so I did I began to giggle like a little school girl.
But when I went up to the counter to wait on some one I felt uncomfortable. I didn't under stand why? So I took it out, they kept on slipping out any way. lol
I try to keep a positive attitude, some time I do catch my self with teary eyes... I have gone to those support groups here but it was mainly about raising money, not a bad thing, but issues were not discussed.
Thank you for your time
My heart goes out to you ladies. While I am not a cancer survivor, I did work doing clinical oncology trials and many, many breast ca trials. I have found the American Cancer Society often offers a wealth of information. Forgive me if you know this already, but the ACS has a "Reach to Recovery Program" that you might find helpful with respect to prosts. etc. You can google American Cancer Society or to find the Reach to Recovery program in your area, visit "In My Community" at the Web site at www.cancer.org or call toll-free at 1-800-ACS-2345 (1-800-227-2345).
first of all, cheers to my fellow breast cancer survivors. and for those who are still suffering, you have my prayers.
having my breasts taken out was extremely painful emotionally, physically and mentally. i didn't know what to do. the doctor assured me that i can have my breasts reconstructed when i'm fully recovered.
for some reason, the sound of breast surgery scares me. perhaps because of the the reason i have to have to go through it in the first place. i do want to have my breasts back. i'm just not sure how emotionally ready i am.
i live in new york. i'm sure there are a lot of notable breast clinics out there, but if i am to have a breast surgery in new york again, i want it to be done by the best.
i was given the opportunity to have another chance to live. hell, i survived breast cancer for crying out loud. i deserve to have the best!
Hi My Name is Sonia Just found out that I have Breast Cancer in Freb this year. I'm only 36 now. I'm going thorg Chemo now. But I would like to know how much well it cost me to get a breast done? I live in Australia.
I was 19 when I was diagnosed. I have since then had two secondary tumors. I have been clear since November 19th 2007. I am 27 now. In january of this year I had a double mastectomy in hopes of never having to go trough this again. For the past 6 months I have been considering getting implants to get back what I once had. I finally met with the surgeon I would like to perform my operation. It has been a long and scary process but I think I am finally ready to get back to me. I finally feel as though I can emotionally handle it. Bless those of you who are still fighting your battles, you are in my prayers. Stay strong and hold your heads high, you have already come so far.
Have you researched the different types of procedures? This is a good place to start, then you can find a doctor that does the procedure you think fits your needs. I think the doctor I mentioned above does the DIEP, SGAP, I-GAP, SIEA, and even one where they use your own tissue. I think its better to have more options to choose from.
My aunt had breast cancer (stage 2) as well, and the hardest part is the emotional turmoil that she felt immediately post-op. Her anxiousness towards chemotherapy and the fatigue after the treatment really drained her physically and emotionally. We try to be strong and positive for her, even if we worry too with the outcome. Now she is recuperating from the illness and considers breast augmentation ny in the near future, although I can tell even without the operation she is very happy because she survived breast cancer. In choosing doctors, first hand experience from family, friends or friends of friends is always the best option. My aunt joined a breast CA support forum and she got good recommendations from cancer survivors.
