Pomp and Circumstance
While many are contemplating going back to school, I have just graduated. No longer am I required to make a pilgramage to to oncologisit every three months. I have graduated to six month appointments. Apparently, I am holding steady-ish on the tumor markers and all is good. Still no sign of cancer.

I am having some quality of life issues that require follow-up. One is that I am trying to adjust to Tamoxifen, but having mixed results. At times I feel good, other times I feel like I cannot tolerate one more leg cramp (today, for example it is the latter). I continue to have issues with ovulation and extreme pain. The first step is to follow up with a gynecologist (oh goodie!) and then determine how much I want my ovaries to function. I have lots of decisions to make and several appointments to schedule (such joy!).

In the end it doesn't really matter. I function just fine and can handle what I have going on now. What matters most is that I am still cancer free.

This is my story about being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 39. I thought I was out of the woods, but four years late it came back. This is my quest to be a two-time survivor.
