Hi Jay, well done! x
For anyone interested, just wanted to share this piece of research with you: https://medicalxpress.com/news/2018-01-specific-protein-breast-cancer.html

Today is all about wearing PINK and bringing awareness to Breast Cancer. At the same time I've held numerous fundraising events - raising funds for Breast Cancer Care. This charity is here - it's full of advice, support, friendship and hope - long may it continue x

WolfEE not the best news ever and I'm so sorry to hear it. How was this diagnosed?
I've still got the on-going high blood pressure 150/90 and I'm on Ramipril - got to double the dose!
The underactive thyroid is due to my immune system attacking the thyroid glad - quite possibly as a result of the Herceptin/Radiotherapy treatments. I will know more when I see the endrocologist in January!! In the meantime, taking my 50mg of throxine a day is making me feel amazing!
I've got the on-going pains of planta fascilitis which again was aggravated by the chemo and has regular flare-ups now where it's so painful I simply can't stand let alone walk! Can't take ibrophren which would help because of the heart meds but can use the gel. However, Dr gave me an exercise sheet yesterday - four quite basic exercises to do twice a day - I'm not the best at getting in a routine but must say after doing them this morning my foot feels a little more comfortable so I must persevere.
In the meantime, I have just one thing to say - active "treatment" for cancer might be out of the way but my goodness I'm rattling just as much with all the subsequent meds.... not counting the healthy supplement pills!!! Oh shake, rattle and roll..... and good wishes to all. lol xx

Sorry Treehouse - I wasn't here after 11 to share in your pains! I do hope you managed to get some sleep and are feeling better this morning. I get where you're coming from - when you're feeling under the weather it's easy to recall all of last year in the spate of an hour - it can be quite depressing! Then suddenly you'll bounce back and think to yourself - my god I survived that.... I can survive this.....! Onwards and upwards - we are survivors - we can face any battle (especially you my lovely!). xx
