SHOCK is putting it mildly.  I walked in your shoes on March 24, 2009, and am happy to say that it does get better.  Get a great support team around you; a support group for breast cancer if one is available will help immensely.  Just remember many women have walked where you are and are survivors.  GOD be with you and your Doctors as you plan your course of treatment(s).

Candy,

Please keep us posted on your journey.  May you overcome and join the rank of survivors!!!  I do understand as to not being ready to leave children and grandchildren.  I pray your counselor is very compassionate and understanding as to what you are going through and can encourage you every step of the way.  Again, if there is a local support group, it would be most beneficial to you.  The one I attend isn't invasive and allows sharing as you are comfortable with.  We also have speakers who share about different aspects of the journey. GOD bless!!!

Hi Candy,

I hope that you are starting treatment as well as counselling.

Please don't be frightened by some of what was posted here about conventional treatments. Your doctor, who has seen your lab reports and examined you is best placed to judge the right treatment for you. The treatments you are likely to be offered are those being used all over the world and that have shown excellent results for breast cancer. 

Someone posted about the benefits of leisurely walking. All walking is good and there may be days that only a leisurely walk is possible. However, the rest of the time be active as possible and do some moderate to vigorous physical activity a few times a week - depending on how you feel of course. Exercise lessens the side-effects of the treatments, is good for moral, helps to keep weight under control, reduces the risk of reccurrence as well as protecting you against heart disease and diabetes.

A good resolution for the new year and one that will ensure you are back in good health to enjoy your children and grandchildren for many years to come.

I had conventional treatment, surgery, radiation and chemo two years ago and just had my two year mammogram check up. All good so far.

Keep us posted and take care. The treatments are not much fun but they are doable. Just take one step at a time.

Sending you hugs and blessings this Christmas time

Diana,

I am very glad for you that you found a treatment that cured your cancer.

However, it doesn't entitle you to be so offensive. If Candy feels counselling will help her through diagnosis and treatment that is her choice. People come to this site to get moral support and advice, not to be bullied.

Also, you make wild statements that cannot possibly be true, like "conventional treatments Kills all cells". All of my cells were not killed. I'm still here.

Please show some kindness and respect.

It's a fight for life. Each must investigate all treatments. Checking blood for tumor markers is important. To each is own. I am not a bully, my cancer was the deadly kind. All cancer is different. But master cells hide in the blood. Blessings so pleased you are healthy!

People must take their own lives in their own hands and make decisions based on what information you seek.  If you blindly go along with what your doctor says without questioning, or getting second or third opinions both within the conventional arena as well as integrative arnea, you are not doing what you deserve.

Candy and anyone else just facing the diagnosis of cancer must seek options, all options, before deciding.  Chemo, radiation and surgery are invasive procedures, you must know the risks and be willing to take them. Both Chemo and radiation kill good and bad cells, they also leave behind damaged cells and organs, [not always] yet the risk is high, if you are not told this, you are not being given the whole wide picture.  We are here not to scare people but to let people know what to expect and ask about, if not, we would being deceptive too.
