Há exatos dois anos eu iniciava a etapa mais longa do tratamento: A hormonioterapia! . Na época eu ainda estava fazendo radioterapia. Confesso que a insistência pra começar logo partiu de mim, eu estava muito agoniada e me sentindo "desprotegida" sem tomar nada. Em setembro havia saído o resultado que eu não tinha mais câncer, eu já havia operado, mas o medo me consumia diariamente. Medo de ter alguma "célula perdida" no meu corpo pronta para me dar o bote. Não quis esperar o fim das rádios e meu médico autorizou que eu começasse o tamoxifeno. O zoladex eu só comecei quando acabou as rádios. . De lá pra cá segui 9 meses com tamoxifeno e zoladex, fiz 6 meses de Aromasin e zoladex (sem sucesso, os efeitos colaterais foram muito fortes no meu corpo) e voltei pro tamoxifeno em fevereiro de 2019. . Nesses dois anos eu já passei por várias fases do tratamento. Passei por períodos muito difíceis, de muita dor e desespero. Passei por momentos de calmeria (sobretudo na época em que eu treinava intensamente todos os dias - ATIVIDADE FÍSICA É FUNDAMENTAL PRA QUEM FAZ HORMONIOTERAPIA E NÃO É EXAGERO). Passei por momentos de revolta. Sim, revolta, a palavra é essa mesmo. E por fim sempre fico no conformismo de que "é o que tem pra hoje" então vamos tentar fazer dessa experiência a melhor possível. . Não pensem vocês que eu nunca chorei e pensei em desistir. Já sim. Mas depois eu seco minhas lagrimas respiro e sigo, como sempre. . Não é fácil viver tudo isso tão nova. Não é. Eu detesto quando minimizam o tratamento a "agora é só tomar remédio por 5 anos né?". "Só". Tome você então rs. . Não é só tomar remédio. É sentir um monte de coisas que seu corpo não foi feito pra sentir com 20 poucos anos. É muitas vezes sentir saudades de quem vc era. É se submeter a uma série de procedimentos acessórios para contornar os efeitos colaterais. . Mas, se é isso que a gente tem de fazer pra bater o martelo da cura, então vamos fazer, né? . Eu tenho dois depoimentos sobre a minha experiência: 1. Aqui nos destaques do insta. 2. No YouTube um vídeo longo e completo sobre a minha experiência com a hormonioterapia. . Que venham os anos restantes. Que o tratamento siga me protegendo 🙏

#hairmail today from a #wigsister trade! @raquelwelchwigs On Point in Deepest Ruby. Omg, this color!!!! Raquel Welch ear tabs always go down too low on me, just like Noriko, so I tried to show it in the last two pictures. The last one is a picture of the flipped under ear tab. Since it lays right on my wig grip it doesn’t bother me all and it provides space for my glasses! 🙌 I’m in love with this one! #raquelwelchwigs #wiggedoutartist #wigaddict #wigaddicts #alopeciaawareness #breastcancersurvivor #hormoneinhibitors #anastrozole #aromataseinhibitor #arimidexsucks #zoladex #alternativehair #helperhair #wiglife

I was desperate for relief from my chronic pain. My doctor recommended Zoladex. I knew the side effects in great detail but also knew the pain I was in every day wasn’t going to get better. I didn’t have anything to lose. That being said, I replaced my one chronic pain with another for 3 months. But hey, I didn’t have my period. . . . . #zoladex #zoladexinjection #chronicpain #endometriosis #auramigraines #migraine #chronicmigraine #spoonie #chronicpelvicpain #memoryloss #nausea

Por 10 años me acompañara esta tira de pastillas verdes. A diferencia de muchas mujeres que pasan por quimioterapia a quienes les afecta el sistema reproductivo y que les dan hormonas sinteticas para no tener menopausa precoz, en el caso de canceres hormono receptivos como el mío me deben dar hormonosupresores, o sea medicamentos que evitan que las hormonas se adhieran a las células cancerosas para que estas se mueran sin alimento y asi prevenir que el cancer vuelva en el futuro. Ademas de tamoxifeno también tendré que pincharme cada 28 días por 5 años de Zoladex que hara que mis ovarios dejen de producir hormonas ( para asegurarnos nuevamente que el cancer no se pueda alimentar ) gatillando una menopausia precoz. Y por que tantos años? Se preguntaran. Bueno y es por que al encontrarme aun en edad fertil existe la probabilidad de que mis ovarios no hayan quedado “secos” despues de la quimio y el estrogeno es ahora el peor enemigo de mi cuerpo. Este tratamiento es normalmente largo en mujeres que tienen canceres de mama hormonales y a las que aun no tienen la menopausia naturalmente, se la fuerzan. Es altamente probable que tenga efectos secundarios muy molestos, pero lo que mas me preocupa es mi estructura osea ya que cambiara la forma en que mis huesos absorven el calcio. Tengo miedo de ser una viejita antes de tiempo ser una vija chuñusca a los 50 y Envejeceré antes de tiempo eso es seguro. Mi piel tambien dejara de producir colageno y mi metabolismo sera el de alguien de 45 años. Creo que la maldicion de la eterna juventud ha llegado a su fin. No me importan las arrugas. Solo no quiero tener dolores de hueso, articulaciones, etc. Ya los tengo... que pasara en 5 años? Si, me libré del cancer, pero que dificil es sentirse libre cuando estoy amarrada por tanto tiempo a esta terapia. “Es el precio que tengo que pagar por vivir” #tamoxifeno #zoladex #cancerdemama #cancerdemanahormonal #cancerdeseno #fuckcancer #fckcancer #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness

Abre la puerta, abre la ventana... que el día va a comenzar. Como? No lo se? Pero abro los ojos y es un nuevo dia. Se que tengo dolores, por todo el cuerpo... mis piernas me pesan, mi cuerpo me cuesta enderezar, mi memoria me falla, mi coordinacion tambien. Salgo con el coche y a veces no se a donde voy... pero abro la puerta y salgo a respirar, oler las ojas de los arboles mojados por la lluvia, sentir el frio en mi delicada piel.

Day 96 - Day 2 of Taxol Cycle 1.. So far it does seems like this new chemo regime is kinder than AC.. no nausea feeling, the body feels less tired.. Right now I'm just trying to cope with the emotions from the past couple of days.. plus the visit with my breast surgeon yesterday hit me a little harder when I realised that large tumour although may shrink, they can be scattered, hence I have to reconsider my surgery option from lumpectomy to mastectomy.. it is a tough pill to swallow since it meant losing more of myself.. So many thoughts going through my head but I am finding it harder these days to express myself, especially to friends around me as their response may not be music to my ears, and I can't blame them as they do not understand what I'm going through.. It is definitely easier for someone who is going through or have gone through cancer to relate to you.. Cancer changes you, it changes your life and the way you think.. #lumpectomy #mastectomy #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #taxol #paclitaxel #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

Taking the Nanna Megs title literally for the next 6 months as I become Menopausal Meg 👵🏻 Never did I ever think that at 27 I would be deciding to put my body through medical menopause but then again never did I ever think that at 27 I would be battling not 1 but 2 chronic health conditions 🤷🏼‍♀️ So after years of ignorant drs, 2 ineffective surgery’s & a million hospital trips later.. I finally found a specialist who cares enough to offer me something other than a heat pack & I had my first of 6 Zoladex injections; the idea is to stop the endometriosis from growing & then cut the bitch out 🔪 This treatment might cause brain fog, hot sweats, achey bones & mood swings & will be followed by (another) surgery but as long as my insides don’t constantly feel like razors & I’m not in hospital once a month who cares if I’m hot, sweaty & a little bit murderous 🥵😈 Plus I have an amazing support system that is there every step of the way throughout my endo journey 🥰 but I do apologise in advance for my bitch face for the next 6 months 😔 #zoladex #zoladexinjection #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endowarrior #pcos #endometriosisjourney #menopausalmeg

Day 94 - Day 13 of AC Cycle 4.. Feeling a little lost about who I am.. this photo was taken during CNY this year, gone are the long hair, the "healthy" self and having free spirits .. I have been flipping through old photos in my gallery trying to clear some space and I just can't help but think that I cannot recognise myself, my life anymore.. it feels like time has standstill.. I don't know what does life really hold for me at this point except just trying to fight off this horrible disease.. it gets tiring.. it gets lonely.. you don't always get to feel normal or positive.. there are days when you feel miserable from dealing with the side effects and days like today when you just feel like crying out of the blue.. sometimes it is hard to even express the emotions within.. so many times when people asked if I'm okay.. I always said I am but what is the real definition of okay.. what if I said I am not.. I know that if I said that people will not know how to respond and where does that leads to? Me trying to explain why I am not okay.. sometimes I don't even know.. it is just hard to explain what's really going through my mind.. the thing about cancer is that it is ugly and how it can take away a part of you and your life so easily.. #beingreal #fcancer #fuckcancer #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

I nærmest bogstavelig forstand er det sandt, jeg fik i fredags lagt et lille bitte implantat i maven, som langsom opløses over 28 dage. Det blev “skudt” ind i min mave med en kanyle. Min nedregulering er dermed i gang! Jeg skal til kontrol om små 2 uger, og ellers skal jeg ikke gøre andet end endnu engang at vente. Der lagt en plan og indtil videre følger jeg den🤞🏻 #ivf #endometriose #zoladex #zoladexinjection #nedregulering #fertilitetsbehandling

Day 91 - Day 10 of Chemo AC 4.. have been feeling more normal the last 2 days and guess what.. I have been going out for yummy dinner and also karaoke😁 I'm slowly learning to let go of the fear of eating outside food and being out and about surrounded by people.. For now, I'm enjoying the normalcy of being able to do simple things that we often take for granted when we are healthy.. things like being able to do no.2 in the toilet every day, drinking water without difficulties, eating without feeling all sorts of discomfort in my stomach, etc.. 4 more days till the new cycle of taxol starts!💪 #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #taxol #paclitaxel #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

Feeling extra blessed tonight to be able to get my Zoladex Injection at home tonight while we decorate the house for Christmas! This is my 4th shot (I will get 13 a year for 5 years) and it took 6 months of going back and forth with insurance and doctors to get to this point. As many of you know I’m a pharmacist and my husband is a critical care nurse. Prior to tonight my insurance was being billed for an infusion room visit ($800 - my out of pocket cost $350) to go in a get a subQ implant every 28 days. The co pay on the shot itself is $250 every 28 days. Not to mention the time spent driving to the infusion center waiting to go back to get the shot etc all during my normal scheduled time for work (creating immense schedule stress for me personally). I was able to switch my Zoladex Injection over from my oncologist to my OBGYN who was then comfortable with my husband being checked off on his ability to give this to me at home. NOT TO MENTION IT WAS THE BEST IMPLANT SHOT I HAVE HAD YET - HE IS MAGIC. From here on out I pick up the shot from CVS after CVS speciality sends it to them every month, and Justin can give it to me every 28 days around the schedule that works most convenient that day! Also, this will create less gap in care as at some point 28 days would have landed on a weekend or holiday. On top of that for anyone who may need this medication and follows my #breastcancer stuff there is a copay card available that covers up to $2000 of your cost of the medication per year. So I pay $0 a month for Zoladex itself. Let me know if you need any of that info and I would be happy to help! This is how all chronic care should be addressed. It would allow for easier access to doctors when people truly need them 😁 #breastcancerawareness #breastcancersurvivor #zoladex #brca1 #pharmacy #pharmacist #nurselife #breasties #doublemasectomy #blessing #cancer

CD 21: I morgen skal jeg skannes, og hvis alt er, som det skal være, så skal jeg igang med nedregulering. Den her gang skal jeg prøve noget (for mig) nyt. Jeg skal nedreguleres med Zoladex. Det betyder, at jeg kun skal have en injektion, og så er jeg nedreguleret i 28 dage. Jeg skal dog begynde, hvis alt går vel, på hormonstimulation mellem jul og nytår. Jeg er meget spændt på det hele🤗👍🏻🤞 #ivf #ivfendowarrior #ivfjourney #Endometriose #endo #fertilitetsbehandling #imorgenskerdet #zoladex

Things are good 💕 . I started oral chemo #ribociclib on Monday. Every morning since then, I’ve felt sick. It gets better throughout the day but for the 5 hours or so after I take the medicine, it’s a little rough. I’m hoping that I’m just developing a cold or have something else wrong me, but we’ll see how the next week goes. Doctors are still struggling to get blood from my veins. I’ve had 2 #zoladex shots so far. I’m having hot flashes, but they aren’t as bad as when I was on chemo. My hair is coming in a lot, but my post-chemo skin is SUPER sensitive. I have started working again and have been getting most of my energy back, so that’s a big bonus! Mostly, I LOVE not being at the hospital every day! . . . . #breastcancer #cancersucks #chemo #chemotherapy #oralchemo #youngbreastcancer #youngadultcancer #stageiv #metastaticbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #ihatecancer

"There is no evidence that either pregnancy or menopause destroys endometriosis and makes it go away. Despite this lack of evidence, the main medical therapies are based on these hormonal states. Birth control pills and progesterone therapy seek to mimic the hormonal effects of pregnancy, while GnRH agonists seek to mimic the hormonal effects of menopause." (Dr. Redwine) Orilissa is a GnRH antagonist, rather than agonist, but has the same systemic effects of agonists such as Lupron/Zoladex. All are chemo drugs which are meant to suppress the endo but causes more side effects. These drugs do NOT treat endometriosis. #endometriosis #endometriosiswarrior #endometriosisawareness #endometriosiseductaion #gynaecology #gynecologist #obgyn #womenshealth #adenomyosis #luprondepot #lupron #orilissa #birthcontrol #zoladex #stronggirl #fighter #endometriosisawareness #endometriosiswarrior

Tantas mudanças aconteceram no meu corpo nestes três anos, que por muitas vezes não me reconheci! . Este fim de semana na praia, onde os corpos são expostos, vivi um momento cheio de significados e emoção! . Nosso corpo é uma dádiva, nosso templo, nosso abrigo e o que nos permite viver nesse mundão de meu Deus! . Hoje consigo me olhar com mais carinho e assim cuidar do meu corpo como ele, realmente, merece! . Tenho muito pra compartilhar sobre minhas descobertas e reflexões, mas agora me reservo para mais uma etapa! A terceira cirurgia na mama, que me trará mais qualidade de vida! . Entendi após este período, que autoestima vai muito além da beleza física, e que ela se fortalece com o tempo, em um longo e conturbado caminho de autoconhecimento. . Desejo que você encontre esse caminho que é sem dúvida, libertador! . Se ame, se cuide, se valorize! A vida é muito curta para vivermos atrás do “corpo perfeito”!

... I've been taking a one month break from my daily letrozole tablets 😍 that I started in January & I've felt soooo much better! Like a fog has lifted. It's been bloody brilliant! I've had so much more energy & zest & less aches & pains. But my month is almost up 😢 Seeing the oncologist later this week to discuss how it's gone & what to do next. Not sure what she'll say. Starting to dread it. I've been trying not to think about it but now the appointment is nearly here I can't help it. I'd really like to go into denial & pretend I can just carry on like this though... I wasn't expecting onc to suggest a break: I thought she'd suggest switching my medication, so I jumped at the chance of a break! As I'm still protected by the zoladex she said it was OK & then we'd get a better idea of which side effects are down to letrozole & which are zoladex. Not looking forward to zoladex next week. Sometimes I see oestrogen as the enemy & others I just want it & my periods back! Sometimes I can see the hormone therapy as protective, a safety net, a good thing; others I just want it to finish & to be drug free, side effect free, au naturel. Loved my break. Don't want the break to end! #hormonetherapy #onabreak #breastcancerjourney #doesiteverend? #dontanswerthat #letrozole #zoladex #erpositive #breastcancerrecovery #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #lifeaftercancer #checkyourboobs

Day 87 - Day 6 of AC Cycle 4.. went back for Zoladex injection today and had lunch outside so I put on some makeup and wore my cap with wig.. met a fellow BC warrior at the clinic and we had a chat, was nice being able to have someone who can relate to you.. I haven't been updating for a couple of days, as I was trying to recover and deal with the side effects like being tired, bloated, constipated and dry mouth.. sometimes when all the side effects hit, it makes my mood pretty gloomy too although cycle 4 is not as bad as before.. I guess my body and mind is just feeling tired from the cancer journey.. but I will be okay.. once the side effects lessen, I will feel normal again.. 1 more week till the next round of chemo - paclitaxel starts.. #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #taxol #paclitaxel #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

Day 84 - Day 3 of AC Cycle 4.. Happy Thanksgiving! I don't celebrate thanksgiving here but I am thankful for all the people around me who have been on this journey with me.. I just received a pleasant surprise package and I have no idea who sent it as there's no name attached but it definitely brings so much warmth to my heart.. thank you for this lovely thoughts and I will definitely stay strong and keep fighting! So far I have been dealing better with the side effects, I think by eating more before chemo helps me cope better.. as for my hair, I have accepted that cold cap does not work for me but I've no regrets trying it.. I will just wait 2 more weeks to test out the theory if AC can really cause complete hair loss.. let's see.. #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #taxol #paclitaxel #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

Medical Menopause 🥵 • • I never expected to hear the word ‘menopause’ in my twenties but to be fair I didn’t expect the gift that keeps on giving, cancer, either! 😂 • After pre chemo fertility treatment, I started having zoladex injections to effectively shut down my ovaries during chemo, as it destroys fast dividing cells, and ovaries obviously contain rapid diving cells. Right now we don’t know the impact of what chemo has done to my fertility but we have done the best we can to protect it. • However... as my cancer is hormone receptor positive, my oncologist and I have had a discussion and we will be continuing to suppress my ovaries for the foreseeable future 😳 it’s a big decision but I will do anything to beat this fucker and lower the risk of recurrence. • • This thick prick is my monthly zoladex that is implant under the skin that tells my brain to stop the ovaries making oestrogen. It also comes with a glorious array of side effects to add to the all the other treatment effects including ; * no periods * Hot flushes * Night sweats * Memory problems * Mood changes * Weight gain * Osteoporosis * Skin/hair changes * Increased risk of heart problems Simply lovely right 😂

Day 82 - Day 1 of AC cycle 4, today is finally the last cycle of the red devil despite having a low grade fever.. my oncologist seems to be quite relaxed with me and said that as long as it is below 38degree Celsius I'm okay to continue although she asked if I wanted antibiotics as standby as my monocytes level is higher than average 🤣.. I continued with the coldcap despite the little amount of hair left on my poor head (probably 30%) but this may be the end of my scalpcooling journey as I think that I may lose even more after cycle 4.. evidence of how easy the hair falls in clumps on my 3rd photo right after removing the cold cap.. I decided to wear 1 more layer of sweater today coupled with cosy socks and managed to keep myself warm with the help of some warm water.. and I guess having more substantial food in my stomach help with the overall side effects too.. I don't feel as tired and nausea today.. came home showered and then ate the homecooked soup by my friend's mom.. now I'm resting with a cup of ginger tea but not tired enough to nap.. hope the next few days be a breeze!! 💪 #alopecia #chemohairloss #chemoconstipation #chemodehydration #zoladex #goserelin #postchemo #chemotherapy #chemosideeffects #AC #ACchemotherapy #doxorubicin #adriamycin #cyclophosphamide #taxol #paclitaxel #breastcancer #breastcancerawareness #breastcancerunder30 #youngbreastcancer #breastcancerfighter #breastcancerwarrior #coldcap #paxman #pegfilgrastim #immuneboosterjab

If you like it...Pls follow me @breastcancer010609 ... Thank you Just call me a pin cushion!! I’m not complaining though ... just whining a little perhaps. But all in all, I’m just happy that I have treatment options, and that they are doing their job! The hormone blockers (Herceptin and Perjeta) are maintaining the liver metastasis - and may even be shrinking them a little more!🤗 And given that my hot flashes are getting more intense by the day, I’d say the Zoladex injections (which are meant to shut my ovaries down) are working as well.🥵 #touchwood — — — — #infusionday #herceptin #perjeta #zoladex #injection #hormonetherapy #hormone #blockers #cancertreatment #hormonehealth #her2positive #triplepositivebreastcancer #metastaticbreastcancer #breastcancercare #breastcancerfighter #immunotherapy #immunosuppressed #fuckcancer #blockerday #portacath #subcutaneous #breastcancerawareness #pincushion

After every possible treatment I was offered, tried and didn’t respond to, the final resort was this Chemotherapy Injection with Zoladex Goserelin & Add-Back HRT up until my next excision surgery. •Today was the first full day adjusting, experiencing and feeling the changes. Here’s to Day 1 of the next 6 months 💛 • • • #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endometriosissurgery #endometriosiswarrior #stage4endometriosis #endo #chemotherapy #chemo #chemoinjection #zoladex #menopause #inducedmenopause #hrt #surgery #day1 #newjourney #newbattle #strong #fighter #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #physicalhealth #mentalhealth

Faz um tempinho que não falo como vai meu tratamento, e hoje foi um dia que fui tomada por sintomas ‘de respeito'! Rs! . Desde 2016, faço tratamento contra um câncer de mama e hoje estou em acompanhamento com hormonioterapia. Há 2 anos fazia uma combinação de Zoladex com Aromasin (isso pouco importa, só pra dar nome aos 'bois' mesmo!), mas as dores articulares e ósseas foram cruéis. . Até que não foi possível continuar, já que minha qualidade de vida estava sendo prejudicada. . Na última segunda feira, mudei para o famoso Tamoxifeno (famoso para as oncofriends que lêem aqui), que substituiu o Aromasin. Só que esta mudança não tem sido simples... e muitos pros e contras foram levados em consideração nesta tomada de decisão junto ao meu médico. . Decidimos iniciar, e logo após algumas horas da primeira administração, venho sentindo um enjoo e uma fadiga que poucas vezes senti em todo esse tempo. . Parece ser uma fase de adaptação a nova medicação, e o que me resta fazer? Esperar... ruim com ele, pior sem ele. Costumo dizer, em momentos que não há o que fazer, feito está. Respira, não pira, descansa, aguarda... e assim vamos. . Não é fácil, e nem é meu papel aqui romantizar a situação, porque só em sentir o gostinho do Vonau (remédio contra enjoo), dá ainda mais enjoo. Como pode, neh?! Bora ver isso ai, farmacêuticas! Rs! (Quem está em quimio, sabe bem do que estou falando) . O tempo é implacável, nestes momentos que o mal estar não tem fim, o tempo custa passar, e quando esta tudo bem, parece que esquece de esperar. . Como nutricionista, sei que podemos manejar de algumas formas o enjôo... mas de paciente pra paciente, o que funciona pra você? Me conta... E o que acham de vídeo sobre isso!? . . . #cancerdemama #hormonioterapia #meucorposemregras

This was my “coming out” story. 🙂 So, I just took the plunge and ordered a wig! I didn’t have chemo when I had breast cancer, but my hair has fallen out like crazy since I started Tamoxifen and now arimidex plus Zoladex. Those are medications that are supposed to keep you from having a recurrence or keep any possible remaining cancer cells from spreading. I already have a pixie, but it would be nice to have some hair to play with every once in awhile! This is the one I got, except in Aburn. It’s so crazy the shame that is involved. It’s taken me about 2 1/2 years to finally do this! Now the wait to get it! #cancersucks #tamoxifen #zoladex #zoladexwarrior #anastrozole #lacefrontalwigs #funwithwigs #breastcancerwarriors #breastcancerjourney #dowhatyouhaveto #alopecia #chemicalalopecia #hormonalalopecia #wiggedoutartist #clair #jonrenau #clairjonrenau
