    Anonymous, It wouldn't be something that can be predicted. What you have experienced is what was hoped for. Many women are treated with chemotherapy or various other drugs which shrink tumors before they have their surgery. Those of us who have, or have had breast cancer live with the thought of the possiblity that "other shoe could drop." We just follow the protocol set up for us with our care team and the rest is pretty much left to God. Live life to it's fullest. Hang in there, Gal, you have a lot of company out here. Take care, Sharon

      I guess the only choice is to do our best every day and live to the fullest as you say! Thank you for your compassion! I feel very blessed with my results but also feel like I ALWAYS have to be working on good health!

    I have and am experiencing it. Like Sharon said nothing can be predicted. I have a great attitude and seance of humor. Sometimes that can be really good medicine to go along with all of our treatments. My philosophy is "I" am going to change things and plow a new path for others that are unfortunate enough to have to go thru this. I have benefitted from it also. I have always been a "rigid, keep to the schedule and rules, worry worry worry about the tomorrows" type of person. I am now more relaxed and forgiving of all. Don't sit and wait for it. Live it and fight like us girls! Take care
