Saw this story on CNN and just had to share.
I can totally relate to this woman. We have a lot in common. However, I'm not interested in going topless at the local pool. I would feel to exposed. But that's just me. When I had my bi-lateral mastectomy 3 years ago, my surgeon said, more than once, that I would have the chest of a teenage boy. It's true. My scars are fading. I'll have reconstruction. Someday. There's a new procedure, Stem Cell Theraphy breast reconstruction which sounds like the thing for me. I'll ask KP if they're doing this procedure yet. http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/benefits-stem-cell-therapy-breast-reconstruction
I started a new breast cancer treatment this week. It's called Arimedex. It's similar (but far more superior) to Tamoxifen. I've been on Tamoxifen for 2.5 years. I tolerated it really well. This new drug has some possible risks like bone fractures but I'll take that over recurrence! Here's an article about Tamoxifen and Arimedex. http://www.webmd.com/breast-cancer/news/20071214/breast-cancer-arimidex-vs-tamoxifen
The new drug sounds righteous. Perfect for me. I'll have a bone density test next week, just for a marker. I expect good results.
