@karendam have faith in your surgeons and radiologist and doctor! Otherwise ask questions and be knowledgeable!
Don't let the fear over take you! The more positive you are the easier all this is!
Cancer can't win!

@kathyomaha55 when I was anastrozole, in one day I had 62 bouts of hot flashes and the following day for just a few hours I would say I had suicidal thought. Thank heavens I knew what was up (due to reading these blogs and the most wonderful pharmacist) and called the Dr
Horrendous feeling of loss of control!

@tricks yep had a total hysterectomy and oophrectomy(sp)…I think that's the hot flash problem!!
Due to cells in tumor next place cancer would have gone was ovary (I had one removed when I was 19)
