@MrsRs: Really, who the F says shit like that and think it’s okay??! I’m a mother myself and pro breastfeeding by all means, but where does she get off saying it’s probably a “good thing” that you had to abort? How awful!!!! Hope you get your health under control. I know this all must be hard for you. *hugs*
On a side note, did SO say anything to defend you? Mine would have SNAPPED!!

@MrsRs: I am glad you are doing well and I know you are excited about the possibility of saving one of your breasts but please don’t get blindsided by this. It sounds like you have an agressive cancer since they are doing the partial masectomy. If you choose to save one breast it could be a ticking time bomb. I know from experience.
Please do your research and make an informed decision. This might mean seeking a second opinion. At the end of the day the most important thing is that you are alive and well not that you have breasts/can breastfeed.

@MrsRs: I hope you are getting through all of this as best you can. I just came across your thread and read all of it, I know I’m pretty late getting here.
First of all, I am glad you are able to do what is best for you under the (horrible!!!) circumstances, and that you have such a wonderful and supportive husband. Thank goodness the surgery went well. I really, really hope you will be doing much better soon! HUGS and absolute best wishes in every way possible!!!
Secondly, I was beyond appalled at your VILE, FILTHY, HIDEOUS, EVIL Mother-In-Law and what she initially said. Then when I read your update, with what she said in that letter, I felt like vomiting. I cannot believe someone would even think such things. My God, how inhuman! I DO NOT have words for how superlatively, egregiously horrifyingly that dirtbag acted. WOW. She can rot in hell. I am so glad that your husband is getting a restraining order!
Again, wishing you all the best, plus LOTS of space from all foul wretches that try to question what you needed to do. <3

I am glad to hear you have a treatment plan. Best wishes now and in the future. I work with many women who had breast cancer 20-40 years ago. They are going strong, living fulfilling lives with cancer a distant memory.
Fortunately, your husband is putting you first. God bless him.

@MrsRs: I’m so sorry for everything your going though. I’m also sorry your Mother-In-Law is a psycho. No one should have to go through what you are goin though and to add that extra stress on top, gosh.
good for hubby for doing the right thing and staying by you.

I’m not kicking anyone.

@ceebree: No. This is the most messed up thing I have heard. How dare you judge her right now. This is not an abortion discussion.

There is nothing wrong with being pro-life, but please don’t kick this woman while she is down.

@MrsRs: You are in my thoughts hun. Your and your husband are doing the right thing wit his mother. You do not need this while in treatment.
My mother is currently n treatment for breast cancer. She was at Stage 4 when it was found. She is doing great. She’s been on chemo for a year, and she lost all her hair and 40lbs (which is is sooo happy abour really) but she kept her life. As she said once ‘when you’re this sick you dont need people who don’t wish you well around”.

Hello again Bees.
I figured it might be time for a quick update 🙂 I’m sorry I’ve been away for ages, it turns out that having cancer is a total arse. Who’d have thunk? :p
I’ve not been on the internet in months. On days I’ve felt like shite I’ve been wallowing infront of the tv and weakly complaining about all the bollocks they keep showing. And on better days I’ve wanted to be outside or spending time with people I love. Because I didn’t know whether I’d get a lot of time with them.
So I have no boobs. Which sucks. And no hair. But also I have (pretty much) no cancer! Yay for partial remission!
I can’t even tell you how exciting that is 😀
My friends and family have been freaking out, because they don’t seem to be able to grasp that I still have a sense of humour over all this. But I’m properly alive, and I point blank refuse to get sad about the fact that I look like a fucking egg.
Oh – just one thing: How come noone tells you that your bloody PUBES are going to fall out?! I was totally prepared to be a tit-less froob, with a baldy head. Noone told me that my armpits were going to go bald, and that pubic hair was going to start falling out in clumps. That was weird.
I still have more stuff to go through, it seems never ending, but there have been moments where I genuinely thought I wouldn’t be here. So I am SO GLAD to be able to come back and let you know that I’m still kicking around. Hopefully I’ll be in complete remission soon.
Oh, and my husband totally got me a new cat. He’s called Orion. And he’s better than all your cats :p

So glad to read your update. I remember this thread. You made the best decision for your and your family and that’s all that matters.
Well, think of all the money you’ll save on having a Brazilian 🙂

@MrsRs: You are so brave. I’m sorry for all the things you’ve been going through and I wish you all the best for your recovery. Something tells me your incredible sense of humour will see you through the darkest days.

@MrsRs: So glad to see an update with positive news! Well at least you don’t have to shave for a few months. You are a strong and brave woman that can do this!!! I am so amazed by how strong you have been throughout this.

@MrsRs: I’m so happy that you updated! You sound positive and upbeat, like you have an amazing attitude about this whole mess. Glad to hear that you are doing better – keep fighting the good fight!
Oh, and sorry to hear about your pubic hair 😉

@MrsRs: you are a character and I love it! I am sooo happy to hear your doing better. I remember your story and its such an honor to have you share your testimony when so many of us are crying over table cloths and napkin holders. Stay blessed and I will keep you in my prayers.
Oh and please do not lose your personality, your positivity and sense of humor is the best weapon against the trials life throws at us
