    I am three years out from stage 1b breast cancer (small cancer in right breast and 1 lymph node). I noted a lump on left breast.

My biggest challenges are bone pain, and cramping, which are significantly more challenging at night; and sleeplessness. I also have a low libido and vaginal dryness. Being post menopausal, I had previously had trouble with dryness and lack of sex drive. Now it's much worse. But the bone pain worries me most. I have...
