-Tributes- What the forum meant to me!

Not an easy decision to archive the forum but Janine (founder) said many years ago that when the forum no longer served the purpose it was set up for, it would be closed. The decision to archive rather than close was made so that it could still be referred to. Anyone wishing to post may do so before...

Forum to be archived to read only from 25 August 2020

After careful consideration we feel it is time to archive the forum at the end of August 2020. It has been running now for 15 years and has been a great resource for so many women. However there are now many more options for women to seek support, and this has meant registrations and activity on the...

Re: It seems quiet around here

Hi Ruth,
It sure is quiet. The new registrations are all spammers these days. Accordingly we've decided to stop registrations of new users for now. Hope you are doing well.

Hi Kerri
I'm so sorry to hear about the MS and the lump, I hope the lump is nothing sinister and the MS is not too debilitating. :hugs:

Hi Jezza
Good to hear from you, Im sorry to hear about the autoimmune problem I hope its not a bad one.

Make sure you all get a colonoscopy as you age, I would have had bowel cancer twice without them. A fecal occult test is not enough. Best to catch it before blood detection. :hugs:

Re: It seems quiet around here

Hi Chris Thanks for checking in. Im enjoying retirement too. Seem to be busy though, 3 months volunteering at Fire Control. Forum is very quiet as are lots of forums these days including caravan and motorhome forums. I think FB and the like takes so much of our time online that other forms of social...

Re: Can breast size increase after radiotherapy?

Hi Heal, I wish I could be helpful but I don't know the answer. Do you have a breast care nurse that could advise you? No experience with rads but the skin might lose some elasticity could be the reason. Also better to be forewarned incase it does happen. You do need to hear from someone with experi...

Re: Public or Private Radiotherapy in Sydney

Buffy,
My experience with the public system has been good. From others comments on radiotherapy in the public system has been quite good from memory.

Re: Postmastectomy Pain Syndrome?

Hi Helsinperth, I can't say Ive heard of symptoms as you describe that I can remember. I do think you need to follow it up through a breast clinic, or a lymphodema clinic. At least seek advice from your breast cancer specialist. Also you have a great resource in WA in Breast Cancer Care of WA. Im as...

Re: Re excision after lumpectomy- what to expect

Hi Buffy I've had a lumpectomy and 2 mastectomies. The lumpectomy wasn't very painful. My mastectomies were because I had expanders inserted. It is common to find unclear margins and have another surgery. I had the same with melanoma. Best of luck with your surgery, better to be safe, with what litt...

Re: still miss seeing that little black cat profile pic chrismelb

Hi Suzanne
Thanks so much for posting the link. Very well written, and an such an honest account of such a cruel emotional roller coaster that Christine and Sam must have faced.

I do hope Sam continues to do very well in life and her article helps others going through similar.
:hugs:
