Another Milestone Reached

I had good news yesterday, I got the results from my first mammogram since my cancer operation. All clear. :) Makes me feel much more positive and hopeful for the future. Last year had been a roller-coaster for me. Turned 50 in the January. Diagnosed with moderate Emphysema in March. Joined BLF as Psorias in April, where I met some really good friends. My marriage completely broke down, and then, at the end of summer, just as I was feeling better about the emphysema diagnosis, I got the breast cancer results, followed by surgery and radiotherapy. Luckily for me, through BLF, I met Azaard (Iamnins), who has been my rock. My life certainly changed for the better, when I moved from Essex to Lancashire to be with him, despite any health issues the year threw at me, I am happier now than I have been for a very very long time.

  • Such good news! Like you I was diagnosed with breast cancer eighteen years ago, had a lumpectomy and lymph gland removal and radio therapy and am still going strong. I developed a melanoma on my ankle six months later but after removal and 6 monthly follow ups I got the all clear. Then about the same time I was diagnosed with emphysema but managed to continue working until 4 years ago when, at 67, I was made redundant. Since then I have become very severe stage 4 and am on oxygen 15/24, but for the last 2 years I have remained almost the same. I still enjoy life, get out and about most days and go on holiday. I have emphysema, it doesn't have me. Have a good life, let it continue as it is now and keep smiling.

  • Thanks carole, :) good to hear you still enjoying yourself :). I'll keep smiling xx

  • I know multiple health issues can be a terrible weight first hand. I also fear down the road future complications. If God forbid you ever loose a breast or for that fact it anyone looses one you much watch on You Tube the piece on Suzanne Somers who had breast reconstruction with the use of DNA.

  • Thanks dwitt
