I went through chemo and 35 treatments of radiation and at the end of that I was good. I was 11 years clear. Then I found a lump in my neck. I thought it was a muscle or a gland. I probably found it in May but I had a doctor\u2019s appointment in July anyway so I thought I won\u2019t bother with that. I\u2019ll just wait until I see him in July. My mistake.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EThey found cancer in my lymph nodes. It was a shock for sure. I thought wow, really? Okay, what do we do now? When I found out it was in my neck I thought that was exactly where it was, right there. They said they couldn\u2019t operate because it was too close to my heart and lungs. But I thought with a little bit of treatment, or whatever, we might be able to do this.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EBut then when I went back in the next time and was told it was actually IN my lungs\u2026that\u2026took me back quite a bit. Within those 11 years I had friends die, and many had cancer, different kinds of cancer, and I knew once it got into your lungs, it goes to your brain and can travel really fast so of course my first initial reaction was\u2026I started to cry\u2026but I had to catch my breath. I thought NO, just because it happened to this particular person does not mean it\u2019s going to happen to me.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EOnce I digested all of that I said okay, it\u2019s there but is this it for me? When I was told it was in my lungs they explained it was because of the breast cancer, that it travelled and it came through the lymph nodes in my neck and then down into my lungs\u2026and then I was asked if my back bothered me and I said are you going to tell me it\u2019s there too? My back did bother me but I thought I had just pulled a muscle or something. That\u2019s when I found out about the cancer in my spine.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EI had never even heard the term \u003Cb\u003Emetastatic\u003C\/b\u003E before this and I have no idea why people aren\u2019t talking about it. I worried about the cancer coming back but the furthest thing from my mind was that it would come back into my lungs and my spine. From my breasts? Really? I don\u2019t know why it\u2019s not being talked about but I think it should be\u2026for people like myself. \u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EI don\u2019t think I\u2019m na\u00efve or have my head in the sand but when you feel good and healthy it\u2019s hard to imagine that something\u2019s actually wrong. You have to be in tune with your body, the little things. When something\u2019s not quite right, you just know. I think people need to know it\u2019s okay to tell their doctor when something feels not quite right. And people should be more aware about \u003Cnobr\u003Ecancer \u2013 that\u003C\/nobr\u003E just because it\u2019s in one spot doesn\u2019t mean it will stay in that one spot and that\u2019s it. I think they should know when it comes to breast cancer, there could be a possibility that it spreads. That it could be metastatic breast cancer.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003Cp\u003EThe best advice I can give? Take a deep breath and think about the most positive thing in your life. What do you want? Really want? Is it not to live? Of course not. So live EVERY DAY the best you can and then \u003Cnobr\u003Esome \u2013 so\u003C\/nobr\u003E if tomorrow doesn\u2019t come, you know today was a good run. I believe our time is all written somewhere in our life book. It starts when you\u2019re born and stops when the good lord is ready for you. Until that day comes I\u2019m staying here and I\u2019m going to cause a little havoc. After all, I have a 28 year old son and if he ever gets married, I need to dance at his wedding.\u003C\/p\u003E\n\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/span\u003E \u003C\/div\u003E \u003C\/div\u003E\n \u003C\/div\u003E\n \n \n \n \n \n \n\u003C\/div\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E\u003Cdiv class=\u0022item-list\u0022\u003E\u003Cul\u003E\u003Cli class=\u0022first\u0022\u003E\u003Ca href=\u0022\/pfe_user_story\/ajax\/27\u0022 class=\u0022use-ajax prev\u0022 title=\u0022\u0022\u003E\u003C\/a\u003E\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003Cli class=\u0022last\u0022\u003E\u003Ca href=\u0022\/pfe_user_story\/ajax\/22\u0022 class=\u0022use-ajax next\u0022 title=\u0022\u0022\u003E\u003C\/a\u003E\u003C\/li\u003E\n\u003C\/ul\u003E\u003C\/div\u003E"}]
