Darlene, of course I am going to let you all know how I go I will definately share whatever she tells me in a hope that someone else will be able to put it into practice.

As for you going..... usually when diagnosed with cancer there is a counsellor connected to the oncologist. Why not ask your Dr ? take care Darlene , it will all soon be over

Lollipop, sorry I thought most girls knew this term it is a term used for internal radiation.
Apparently this type of treatment can have an effect( mentally) on women who have it . I am experiencing flashbacks to this treatment.
If you want more info. please let me know hugs and love xxx

I'm glad that you are going to get all the help you can. I have been tossing around the idea of having a few counseling sessions with my psychologist pre and post surgery, to deal with the mental roller coaster I am on. She might help me get a clearer picture of myself.

How wonderful it is that this person you are seeing specializes to suit your needs!!

I'm looking forward to hearing about how things went.

hi robyn

Thanks for your e-card! I am sitting here balling my eyes out today. My breast oncoloists that removed my lymph nodes in my armpit just called and I have to have a follow-up ultrasound and mammogram. This just set me off! When my surgery and brachytherepy just got put off a month because of my pneumonia, and the steroids are making me fat! Can I come with you to your therapist! HAHAHA Anough about me, I am so happy to here you are doing this. After this morning and how I am feeling, your post has motivated me to make a call to a therapist TODAY! Thank you Robyn. Oh yah, I am so sorry you are having flashbacks, I heard of this happening and it must be horrible. I hope the therapist helps you deal with these. Love ya!

s Robyn

I am so glad to see you are doing this!!!! It will be time well spent. If cancer head should ever interfere with my life too much, I would follow right in your footsteps. And I think you are providing an invaluable service by sharing this journey with us all. Kinda like knocking down barriers. Go girlfriend!!!!!!!

Good luck Robyn.

I am glad someone else asked about bracytherapy, because I did not know either. It sounds like this creates some type of post tramatic stress disorder. That is certainly understandable as you and others have certainly gone through alot.

I hope your visit is very helpful. And that you are feeling chipper soon.
