Hi! I was first dx with BC in 2012. In 2016 I was then dx with bone mets. I had just recently joined a gym and started to exercise when I thought I had pulled a muscle. After 4 months of trying to figure out what it was ( my regular doctor thought it was a muscle strain) I finally went to my oncologist. Got a PET scan and found out my cancer spread up and down my spine, hips, femur and various other places. Iíve been treated with various chemo pills and now recently started the IV chemo again.
Of course this all was my worst nightmare. But somehow I have learned how to deal with it all. Itís a part of who I am now, but I try very hard not to let it be who I am as a whole.
I guess my point in telling you this is that if anyoneís cancer does come back, you will find a way to deal. Try not to live your life in disabling fear. Trust your gut if something comes up, but know not every little pain is cancer.
Hope this helps. Lots of love to all....Karen H.
