That nurse should not have said that! Everyday more folk are beating it & medicine & sciens are discovering new drugs etc. I'm 7 years from diagnosis. I've had bad luck with reconstruction on my breast & only last Monday had my implants taken out and capsular contracture cut away then implant back in my 5th op to correct things & I feel folk think I'm having these ops for cosmentic reasons! I'm more worried about getting Dementia & losing my hearing like my wee mammy did than cancer coming back! I could not live in silence & I'd hate to have to be cared for by family and not know who they were etc.
I agree the nurse should not of said anything but when I told the doc and his assistant they did not agree or say not true.
I am glad you are doing ok. I sometimes think implants should not be used and we should live as we are...even if it not the best
... and you still describe her as a friend?
An aged Aunt once told me that my son's severe autism and my cancer were "God's way of testing your faith" - my "It's a good job I'm an atheist then" response was ignored lol
