Keeping you all in my thoughts.  I just cannot imagine the pain of losing a child.  Why indeed does pain and suffering exist in the world?

Well ladies, looks as if I am a late bloomer with the chemo side effects.  Got cellulitis of left breast and foot neuropathy all in the same week.  Not to mention my blood work shows I am developing a nice case of anemia.  Life does go on and I have not missed one day of work.  Antibiotics cleared up the cellulites. The neuropathy feels better with this cream he prescribed and I am taking iron for my anemia.  All's well that ends well!

Oh Annette - does it every END?  But clearly you're taking care of it -- hope it goes smoothly from here.

Annette, I got a cellulitis infection as well!  It was the sickest I have been in a very long time.  I had 103 fever and chills for almost three days, my poor half boob was scarlet red, and I had to cancel my trip to PA to meet Sharon and Elaine.  The fun just never ends...

Hi there I am still in treatment and surviving. IBCstage3 her2+ (hormones neg) 2 tumors (23 cm and 5 cm originally) w lymph nodes. Rnd 5 chemo and tumors no longer feelable or seeable. (not been mri yet) chemo appears to have shrunk them away. 
Dr says will still have to have a full masectomy and radiation. My question is... if it is essentially gone, wouldn't having a masectomy remove any possibilities of anything being in there? It sounds like overkill to me to have to do radiation as well.  I have been burning from the inside out with chemo to the pt of peeling and blistering and having to have skin lanced and can only imagine how much I would burn if having rad everyday. Anyone able to shed some light on this for me. If this isn't the place to ask, forgive me, I am new and just signed up today, so let me know. Thanks
Jeanee

Hi Jeanee, I'm sorry you had to join us but so pleased you appear to be having a great response so far to chemo, I don't understand why your skin is peeling and burning though as this shouldn't happen with chemo?? To answer your question though many Onc's are now going by new studies showing rads after a mast can really cut the risk of recurrance as they zap any stray cells there from surgery and its sadly still possible to recurr even after a mast. A lumpectomy may be possible too if you had considered that considering you've had so much shrinkage, I assume you're having Herceptin too?? I don't think any treatment you're having is overkill to be honest as both IBC and her2+ are so aggressive anyway it makes sense to treat them with everything you can. I also was her2+ and was glad I did all the treatment back in 2005 that was offered to me and I suspect you may be too one day, good luck! www.her2support.org
