Wonder if anyone also has breast cancer

Hello my fellow sisters!

I have been away awhile, had my hyst in '06 due to uterine cancer. I loved this forum during and after my surgery to get me through all that I needed to learn to optimize my best outcome!

I have now discovered I have breast cancer, and will be having a bilateral mastectomy in 3 weeks. I am just wondering if there are others of you out there that have also had both cancers, I'd love to connect with.

I found both my cancers in the early stages and feel lucky as as bad as two cancers sound, early diagnosis makes prognosis good. So sisters keep spreading the word to all our sisters how important to take care of ourselves and be there for each other!

Re: Wonder if anyone also has breast cancer

Hi ejd. I'm among those who have had both breast and endometrial cancer. My mastectomy was twenty six years ago and my TAH/BSO was a year ago in October. I had a year of CMF chemo with my bc, and then reconstruction. My endometrial cancer was found early and the hysterectomy was all that was deemed necessary.

I am so glad that you know that finding these cancers early means way less chance of recurrence. For me, the emotional and mental aspects of this illness were more difficult than the physical, so having hope in non recurrence is huge!

I am sending my best wishes for a straightforward surgery and an speedy and complete recovery. Also sending some gentle hugs. Let us know how you are doing.

Barb A.

Re: Wonder if anyone also has breast cancer

Hi BarbA, glad to hear your great outcomes. And thanx so much for your hugs and support. The MDs are telling me barring unexpected complications no chemo expected post op-for that I am pleased. So by summer I'll be up and fully charged again!
