About 2 months ago I went in for a yearly mammogram. I had had a bad mammo last year and was supposed to go in and have it looked at 6 months ago.. and didn't anyway.
I have cancer. I had surgery the 4th of February. The surgeon removed the mass on my right breast, which coincidentally I had cancer in 12 years ago, and also 11 lymph nodes. Three of them had cancer. It's stage 1, but I am not happy about it.

I am very sore. My skin feels like it's on fire.

I will start radiation next week and maybe chemotherapy.

Having cancer twice is a strange thing. I thought the first time was a fluke. Apparently it wasn't.

I'm scared and scarred. Tired and weak from the surgery, from the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and lack of exercise.

more later.
