BERT2011 (Bugger, Estrogen Receptive Tumor)….

Metastic breast cancer at 38

It’s been a while….

Well it’s been a while since my last post… Christmas has been and gone and life got a little hectic…

So here’s where I’m at at the moment… Finally on the mend since the last operation, this one has taken some getting over to be honest.. Scars healing now but the drain was a real pain in then neck, and I got an infection around the main wound site.. All on the mend now…

Various drugs etc had knocked my menstrual cycle out so we’ve been waiting for my body to sort itself out so that I could begin ivf… Turns out annoyingly that there was tablets that I could have been on weeks ago to assist with this but the docs never said, so we had to make a very difficult decision to delay my chemo for ivf..

Sat here now feeling very nervous waiting for my husband to come home to give me my first injection… Horrible sick feeling… Feels like its getting real now as the start of ivf means that chemo is fast approaching…

Bit down tonight… Found out a friend is pregnant tonight… And I’m starting ivf to take eggs before chemo, life feels pretty cruel tonight… Feel like everyone else’s life moves forwards and mines in limbo….
