Reconstruction is on my mind. I'm on chemo now I have been advised to make a decision about the right breast. I understand there is no outcome without risk, is it true that removal doesn't better my odds against breast cancer significantly? Does anyone have experience with fat only Reconstruction? Thank you!

I have been having pain and itching since they poke this bear (biopsy/mammo. 6/07/22) I have fibromyalgia and been compartmentalizing pain for 22 yrs. (56) I have been caring for my dad (stroke) 4/21/21, during the investigation of this diagnosis. I know this isn't biopsy pain too long ago now. All literature says no real pain unless inflammatory BC. I have had 3 of 5 diagnostic tests, no mets. Oncology on the 6/30, Chemo for approximately 6 months. Then double mastectomy. Familiar to anyone? Thank you much!

Hi! I just joined with the interest of finding like minded people dealing with BC in a holistic and encompassing way however, I just see very sad and defeating posts. Is this how it is here always? We’re dealing with a very stressful condition, I get that, and one of the most important parts is to keep a high vibration and find reasons to stay happy and positive. I was diagnosed stage 4 and living fully, enjoying life, moving heaven and earth to heal. Are people here doing that? Pls help me understand how this app works otherwise it’s not for me.
