Oh carolinapam, I'm right along with you. I apologize to everyone here for not being around the last few months, but truth be told, I've had my head up my butt, trying to deal with what's happened over the last year, including the deaths of both my parents from Stage 4 lung cancer at the end of the summer -- within 3 weeks of one another. They were diagnosed last November, just a month before my own.
I've already had the first mammo -- on the "afflicted" breast, since my lumpectomy last February. This February, my surgeon wants me to have a mammo on both. The first mammo was fine, by the way. But I am constantly anxious. I am so aware of everything: Changes in scar tissue, twinges after working out, possible fluid build-up, etc.
I don't know why I said all this -- just to let you know you have a kindred spirit I guess.
Anyone have some advice for us? You've all been in my thoughts, even if I've been absent.
