POSTS ON JAN’S BREAST CANCER
A bit of bad news for me with a recent diagnosis of ischaemic heart disease. Sticky valve is no problem, many of us have that, but
the part of my heart that is not receiving enough blood is a problem I am told. Being a pleb pensioner these days, I now
find I have to wait until August to see a Cardiologist. In the meantime I am leading a healthy life and keeping my fingers crossed.
It is now 3 years since my first diagnosis and I am still cancer free. Fingers crossed!
15th DECEMBER 2012
Well, here I am, 2 years and 2 months later…. and still going strong!
Not every day is a ‘diamond’, some days are ‘stone’, but regardless of that, I am still alive and life is good!
My Aunty Joyce died from breast cancer and before she left the planet she gave me this advise….
‘Make Every Day A Winner’ - and that is what I try to do!
Hope YOU are going along ok as well!
MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE AND A SAFE AND HAPPY 2013
15th JANUARY 2012
Yeeeeehaaaaaaaa! I had my last treatment today!!
Ok, so there is still a few appointments with the Oncologist and some regular tests to follow,
but basically, I am a FREE WOMAN! (-: OMG! I can’t tell you how good that feels.
I did have a scare a few weeks back when another pea sized lump raised it’s ugly head, but lucky for me,
a biopsy showed that the lump is not malignant…. but we are keeping a good eye on it!
I am feeling well and still appreciating having some hair… I’ll never take it for granted again.
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO SENT CARDS AND GIFTS AND THEIR VERY KIND GET WELL WISHES.
I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO GET BACK TO EVERYONE (it’s impossible I can tell you!) BUT PLEASE TAKE THIS
AS MY VERY GRATEFUL THANKS TO YOU FOR YOUR ABSOLUTE GENEROSITY OF SPIRIT!
LINEDANCERS ARE JUST THE BEST!!!
VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR WISHES TO EVERYONE, I HOPE THAT 2012 IS THE BEST YEAR YET!
Jan is still coping well and says that although the radium treatment was a bit scary at times, it was really not so bad.
By the end of the 6 weeks of radium treatment her boob was pretty well burnt and had holes in several places.
Those holes have all healed up now. She still has lymphadema of both the arm and the breast and that is
quite painful at times… but she thinks she is lucky to have just that!
A recent mammogram and ultrasound (September) was all clear! Her herceptin regime continues until about March next year.
Jan has thick curly hair now and it grows very fast. She has just had her 3rd haircut!
The class she took over in Maroochydore while she was having her radium
As for me, I am very glad to have Jan back home again… it’s been a worrying time.
Life is still good…….Annie
IN THE BEGINNING
Her diagnosis is Breast Cancer HER2 Positive Grade 3.... (aggressive) Diagnosed in October 2010
Jan had 2 operations to remove the cancer, a lumpectomy and removal of the lymph nodes under her arm
Chemo started on 17th January after a few false starts because of the infection which persisted in her second operation site.
The chemo wasn't as bad as she thought, up until day 3, then it all started….
Gastro intestinal pain, colic, chills, altered consciousness to the point of passing out, 7 kg weight loss in 3 days, peeling gums, sweating, constipation initially followed by profuse diahorrhea, bile discharge ++ extreme pain in the ankles and wrists (heat helped) and a general feeling of lifelessness. She is deaf in the right ear and is experiencing blurred vision.
The Oncologist stopped Jan's chemo, it was way too harsh for her and would have seen her off the planet had it continued.
She did lose her hair, and that was after just one run in with chemo drugs. 5 months later, her hair is about an inch long all over.
Some of the symptoms are still hanging around, decreased hearing, blurred vision, digestive problems, tiredness, joint pain.
To add to that, she now has lymphadema of the right arm. Her Mum (85!) is her physiotherapist and works on her 3 times a day
and she has to wear a a lymphadema bandage at times… you can imagine how thrilled she is about that! (-:
Her current treatment is iv Herceptin in hospital, every 3 weeks. A recent echogram of her heart showed
some minor changes but not enough to stop the Herceptin. (a side effect of Herceptin is heart failure!)
She has also taken it upon herself to take Essiac, a natural herbal medicine that is reportedly an old Indian cure for cancer.
One of our friends in line dance, Judy Heathcote, died in hospital from cancer a few weeks ago. She was 61 and loved life!
Jan was in the room nearby having her own cancer treatment at the time. It was a very sad and depressing time.
Radium therapy started for Jan on the 14th June. It was so sad watching
her drive away from home, on her way to
Having radium means she was away from home for 6 weeks.. she hated that idea! She stayed at Charles Wanstall Lodge which is a an accommodation for cancer suffers, and a 15 minute walk from the hospital where she had radium every day Mon - Fri
