Wed, Jun 24 9:25am · Breast enlarged in Breast Cancer

I have too struggled with increasing breast sizes. I have gone up 3 sizes in the last 3 years and gained weight along with it. I have reduced my portion sizes and eating less red meat. Consequently, I have decreased my cholesterol by more than 30 points ( very proud of that). I have discussed this with every post visit and still can’t seem to stop it. I can only think it is the hormone blockers that are doing it.

Not sure if this was from the radiation but guessing so. Had it stretched and omeprazole helped. Good luck and use your ointment post treatments.

I am out 2 years out after 2b lumpectomy and 33 radiation treatments. I had the aching for about a year and one half. Aching is gone now except for pain in my feet. Opted to stay on the arimadex.

How did you like that? I was going to have that treatment and my tumor was too big once removed. Therefore, I fell outside the qualifications and had to have the tube removed a week after surgery.
