Hello! It's been such a long time since my last post. I wanted to check in to let you all know that I'm doing great! I still see my oncologist ever 3-6 months. I've had many scans in the past two years, all of them are clear. I'm feeling well. My family is well. I'm very grateful.
My sister Mary and I will celebrate our 50th birthday on Monday, 1/13/14. Um, wait. WHAT? 50?? Hahaha. It's all good. It's just a number.
My boys are doing well. My youngest just turned 15 on the 7th. And my oldest turns 18 on the 25th! January is a busy month. Lots of celebrating!
I'm still on Arimidex. Dr. says I'll be on this for the rest of my life. I don't notice any side effects. It's keeping my hormones in check. I take one tablet once a day. I've never missed a dose.
It's been 4.5 years since my diagnosis - ILC, Stage 3a. I still have not had reconstruction. I don't plan too, unless FDA approves a procedure that's less invasive. My one option now is too painful and risky. So, I'll continue to live my life with a flat chest. Sometimes I wear my prosthesis, but for the most part, I go without. The prosthesis are a bit heavy, which annoys me so much.
Have a Happy and Healthy 2014.
