Breast cancer: Hi everyone I'm new here... - Breast Cancer Haven
Im a soon to be 60 year old who still thinks shes 30! I was diagnosed with breast cancer after my routine mammogram on Sep 25th last year. To say it was a shock is an understatement! Anyway I had a lumpectomy at the end of Oct 15 and they discovered I was only grade 1 so then just required 3 weeks of radiotherapy at The Royal Surrey ' s St Luke's Cancer Centre in Guildford. I just thank god I had the mammogram or I would be sat here still none the wiser as I had no lump or other symptoms. I am on Anastrozole as I didn't want to put on weight as everyone I know piled it on with Tamoxifen. My doctor warned me my joints would hurt but I didn't realise how much! My doctor advised exercise and as I sit at a desk Mon to Fri I decided to go with my husband when he takes our springer spaniel out each morning
I go out for half an hour at 5 am Mon to Fri and Sat and Sun at 6am. I can honestly say I've never felt better and it becomes a routine which I can't give up no matter the weather. So ladies get active and the pain goes.
Hello I've just had mastectomy and node clearance for recurrent cancer I had wide excision in March 2014 it's such a worry
So sorry to hear your problems I too came off tamoxifen due to painful joints is it me or does everyone seem to be getting too complacent I was fobbed off since October when I found more lumps sorry I work for the NHS but I feel very let down they say now we got it all but they said that last time so it's hard to feel relieved
Hope you get sorted and feel a little better soon xx
