I could REALLY use someone to chat with that has had their cancer grow through or come back right after treatment. I then was left with no option but to have a radical mastectomy and a lattisimus dorsi flap. Then needed another to fix part of the flap. This all happened in a seven and a half months. Time has passed but still feel awful most of the time. I should note I also have other painful autoimmune issues, rhumatoid arthritis being one. Anyway, the cancer was found because I was always tired and drained. After some time passed I had pain running down my side and arm. Then came the breast pain, tenderness and swelling. Nothing could be felt when a breast exam was done. That next week I went for a mammogram.
This is just a quick overview.......My hope is to chat with anyone who has had this flap and find out how they manage. Thank you!
