Dawn
Cancer Type: Breast Cancer
Stage of Cancer: Stage 3B
Medical Term for the Type of Cancer: Mucinous carcinomo
Cancer Symptoms: Bloody nipple discharge from one breast only. Tenderness with (initially) no palpable or detectable (except by MRI) tumor.

No reconstruction can restore that, regardless of what plastic surgeons can do to create a fake one. Oh, and it was performed on my 44th birthday in Dec. 2003, which didn't help matters any.
Chemotherapy Description, Dates & Side Effects: Dec. 19 2003 - Feb. 27 2004. First-line, dose-dense chemo. Taxotere, Cytoxan and Adriamycin. Horrible horrible horrible. Felt godawful (aching fatigue unrelieved by sleep, and absolutely no energy) for years afterwards. I don't think I'd do it again.
