Breast Cancer

Hi, I celebrated my one year anniversary in December - hyster due to fibroids, enlarged uterus, etc. Anyway I have been on Premarin since. Well in February I had a questionable mammogram and following a biopsy I learned I had non-invasive breast cancer. So in March another surgery - lumpectomy and now I am getting ready for radiation. Well, because my cancer is estrogen sensitive, I had to stop the premarin, so now I have nothing but lots of stress and lots of hot flashes. Has anyone been up against this. I would appreciate any advise. Thanks.

Hi Lisa, cancer is sure scary to be diagnosed with, wherever it is I am so glad that you posted.

I have no experience with breast cancer but I am willing to support you and I will try to find out anything you need to know.

But I suggest that you also you post on the DESERT OASIS where lots of girls are unable to take HRT for a variety of reasons.

I hope all goes well with you radiation, dont forget not to use any creams on the skin unless you first ask your nurse or radiologist as some creams contain zinc or are metal based and can have an adverse reaction to the radiation beams. Please pop in and let us know how you are doing.

Try to stay positive, positive helps fight that cancer but on days that you cant, come here and rest on our shoulders. Keeping you close to my
