I'm sure you would be having these tests. ...CEA....etc I was told that an elevated reading does not necessarily prove that your cancer has progressed or that you have a recurr...

Janette

The photo you saw at your ps of the reconstructed nipples.....how long ago were they done?

I had one nipple reconstructed and it was quite prominent at first. Is shrank a lot.
Maybe even a little too much.

I kept my nipple on the propylactic mastectomy side.

I really don't know a lot about tumour markers. All I know is that mine were all over the place for no apparrent reason and stressed me out so much that my surgeon told me to stop having them. I think he may have been sick of me calling him up. All my xrays and scans were clear and my markers were s...

ozzie Have just been on American forum where you post sometimes. They have a link in a post in their Hormone Therapy Forum which takes you to the article in Science Daily about tamox. It is probably the full version of what was in your paper and may have additional info. Don't like to post links her...

My mother took Tamoxifen for 10 years. Your example is the only other case I know of where someone had taken it for that length of time. I was worried about her taking it for so long and wrote to her specialist.My bs thought it was pretty unusual. Anyway she didn't have chemo and didn't have a recur...

I have had been on American chat when lots of girls have been chatting too fast to read properly about teeth problems after chemo. Although it is probably the last thing you would feel like doing I think a dental check up before chemo is a good idea. I do get your point though Chris. Every case is s...

Yes Janine I find the chat room a bit confusing too. It stopped my pass word when I had to re enter and I had to re register and get sent a new one. The new one they sent me has numbers and capitals and lower case and I have to have it stuck on the computer or I would never remember it. Anyway it ha...

Yes I have seen a lot of this doctor on TV and read a lot of interviews. That Australian Story was amazing television.

He speaks so well and has a lot of compassion and hope as well as being realistic.
We need more doctors like him. He is brilliant.

Interesting topic.

Had a friend who was told she needed a $4000.00 tooth implant after chemo.

Doesn't seem to be enough information on this subject. I'm interested to read other ppl's experiences.
