Been a long time since I posted here!

It is over one year now since my diagnosis of invasive lobular carcinoma.  The surgery, chemo and radiation are memories now.  Almost like it really didn't happen to me, but it did.  I have the scar to prove it.  Still going to specialists for regular check ups.  On Tuesday I am going to Albany to see a plastic surgeon about reconstruction.  I'm a little scared because it is a big surgery.  I know I will feel a lot better about myself after however.
I have been loosing weight that I gained since getting my ovaries removed.  The old fashioned way with dieting and exercise.  I am on a new pill to cut my hormone level  even further.
I am hoping that after the reconstructive surgery, I can go back to work.  Not at my old job, too stressful.  Maybe get re-training thru Social Security.

  1. I know it seems longer that than to you but to me the year has gone by quickly. If you have to go back to work I pray that you can get a good job. Helen
