Five years ago this month I had the surgical removal of cancer in my breast (DCIS=ductal carcinoma in situ). Radiation followed. Today I'm celebrating because. Right, Just Because!
FIVE YEARS of on-the-job-training to be a breast cancer survivor. Where did we learn in school how to undergo the highs and lows of a cancer diagnosis? And who gave us a preview of the many return visits to the surgeon, to the oncologist, and to the radiologist?
So this month is a milestone. Five years out for B/C.
