thank you for your reply.
I couldn`t go to the moving forward course. i have young children. I wonder if the type tripple negative cancer is linked to pregnancy, because i had a new baby then just after a month of the bith of my latest child i lost my mum, she was really poorly, she past away from hart failiur, but also she had a rock hardness to her left side of her breast. It wasn`t diagnose because she olsa had problems with vitle organs, her hart was very week and it resulted to the poor function in other organs like kidney and liver failiur. and swelling in the body, hardness and heavyness i the breast ( i thoght it could be cancer), then at those very same time dealing with a new baby, dealing with my mothers death i felt a lump in my breast. it wasn`t as large as it was as the time progressed. i thoght it was just a milk duct, but the only difference from my experince from milk duct from my previous babies that this was not painful, and it was a bit on the upper side of the breast. i just thoght it was a milk duckt but then it did not go infact it doubled in size. then i decided to go to the doctors as i even felt it growing and moving towards my arm pit. so every one out there, my advise is if you feel any kind of lump in your breast, pease act fast and go to your doctor. it is not a joke, if you act fast you may even save your self from a major operation like mine which is the compleat removel of your breast. you can save it if your fast, thank you. good luck to every one. i`m also worried about becoming menapousal, but i feel greatful to have lovely 4 kids. i hope everyone can be able to have their child, so good luck everyone
Thank you for replying back, reading all the other comments below I'm kind of assuming that everything is alright, a few woman have there periods back while on medication, it's just I got a bit worried because been hearing different stories, will wait see if come back, so far have stopped again. Sorry that you had to have a mastectomy, I had a lumpectomy and all lymph nodes removed, mines was her 2, so had a year herceptin too, I must admit the chemo was the worst for me, the 1st 3 fec was fine a few side effects, it was the doxitacel was the worst bit, but then we are all different, my biggest fear was losing my hair, I know to some people it's not a big deal, to me I have never felt so scared to look at myself, yet it didn't bother me seeing others, I just wasn't that brave at that part. Thankfully my arm is improving, but can't lift heavy things for to long, I joined a gym just over a year ago, don't overdo it, but love using it for the pool, etc. I don't know anyone that has had reconstruction I'm sorry, did you go on the moving forward course? I found that so helpful, I have just started writing on this forum, which I find so useful and people are so nice, when I got diagnosed I was scared of going on the net, but a while after noticed this forum and always read different things. I hope everything goes well for you Leyla and everyone else that is going through all this.x
Following BC diagnosis I received chemotherapy treatment September- December 2014 am since on Tamoxifen, also aged 44 and have just started a light period today. This happened once before last September and lasted a day. I hope this will be similar and a one off.
4 years ago I ended chemo. After my first treatment my periods stopped. Now I'm a little nervous because they seem to be back, not not normal like a "real" period. Very brownish and clotty. I am experiencing the cramping like a period, and a month ago to the DATE I had spotting. I'm assuming it's back. I'm 47 years old. I'm shocked that it's back now after being gone for so long.
I'm 36, have been through FEC-T (with Heceptin) and surgery (starting radiotherapy on Monday). I had my last period in December (at that point around the 4th or 5th chemo session), then they stopped. I started again last week and it's been extremely heavy. Extremely. It's now also in it's ninth day. I spoke to one of the Breast Cancer Care workers the other day and she said that the first period back can be heavy, but - as it's Saturday! - was wondering if anyone has experienced the same, before I can get the GP on Monday?
Had breast surgery april 15 2014 the periods stopped and started to spot last month and now again this month more , started to freak out so it is nice to have a place to chat !!! a year and a 1/2 was nice and im 54 !!! this should be done, well i was hoping !!!
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 (january) started immediately on chemo. Periods stopped in March of 2012. I woke up this morning and noticed I was bleeding after going to the restroom. I'm assuming I started my period again. It's been so nice not to have this to worry about for four years. I never thought I would have my period again. It's been almost exactly four years since it stopped. Anyone else out there who's had this? AND I"M 50!
i did recieve a cycle afterwards. after i stopped chemo my period came once every 3-5 months. after 2 years it became regular (28 day cycle). i did a video on my journey please check it out: https://youtu.be/d13g9Wky4us
