Quoted from a post ion January 18, 2011 in our support group
"I can remember my onco saying to me last year after my op... if you go 2 yrs without a recurrence then you are doing well... how are you supposed to put that to the back of your mind... he was right... 7 months later i was re-diagnosed.. so am back on chemo again.. but you pick yourself up, dust yourself down and carry on for the sake of your kids, hubby, family and friends..." - Joanne Wattam
Joanne was diagnosed at age 39 with TNBC, Stage 2, 7 mos out of chemo with a recurrence, found lump in neck. Joanne just turned 40 and she did develop infections that the doctors couldn't get under control... pneumonia in her lungs for one. Fluid gathered in lungs.
