I am a 11 year Breast Cancer survivor. In 2000 I was diagnosed with stage 2 Infiltrating Ductal Carcinoma. I had a sentinal node biopsy and 30 lymphnodes removed -all were negative. I underwent 4 months of chemotherapy and has a modified radical mastectomy. Later that year I also had a complete hysterectomy and a Lat Dorsey breast reconstruction. Complications from surgeries are: Lymphedema right arm and right chest and back, normal conditions due to loss of Estrogen, ie. loss of mental clarity, lack of sexual desire, lack of lubrication, hot flashes ( yes even 11 years later) .
