      Please keep us posted. May simply be due to the infection.

      Hi Jo, swollen gland was just due to infection and it is all cleared up now. But other issues have come up with having to do chemo now which wasn't part of the plan before. I'm so confused..................

      Glad to hear you've moved past that pothole in the road. It seems to me that breast cancer starts a cascade of events that may or may not be related. Just when you've put out one fire and got The Plan another wildfire pops up and calls for a little tweaking of The Plan. Oh, well.... Keep up the good fight and party hard when you're able. :-D Jo

    You should see your doctor so that you can have peace of mind. However, the swollen gland you feel could be a swollen lymph node, a result of the infection.
