It's ok as long as I get there, right?  I'll get to that doctor somehow.  this time I emailed him because I couldn't deal with the phone!!!!!
I'm paralyzed with fear about my right breast. I have pain in my right breast.  I don't feel that lumpy feeling anymore, but have pain when I check the inside-side of the lumpectomied breast.  the original lump was on the outside-side of that breast.  My cat likes to walk over me when I'm in bed playing my game, and it just downright hurts when she puts her paw there, and when I check the area, it hurts. It's by the chest wall, too, so it's really scaring me.  Sometimes it's uncomfortable just because, too. 
I called my surgeon (Vicky's and my surgeon) once today and was given a machine and hung up, so I tried to email him, as Vicky said she does occasionally.  I asked him if I can do the MRI my insurance said they'd pay for.  Never emailed him before.  can't seem to pick up the phone and call back.  I'm freaking here.  I hate that I had cancer.  I'm imagining cancer all along the wall of my chest.
By the way, haven't heard from Vicky in a while.  Has anybody else?  She wasn't doing well.  Her eyes hurt and her arm was hurting too.  I've emailed her, I'll try again.

Don't knock on Death's Door.  Ring the bell and run.  He hates that.

Yes, Ellen I understand the pain and the scary feeling, especially when you have been through it once. I keep getting this strange pain in my reconstruction. Could cancer be lurking beneath? How could we tell if it was? And once in awhile the other breast hurts. Is it imagination or is it real? Who knows? I kept telling myself nothing is wrong, the mammo did not show anything last spring and it is almost time again. Then comes Carolyn's news............... So, you see at least one of us shares your fright. Not that I am really frightened of having a recurrence and losing the battle. It worries me more about surviving and not being able to take care of myself. I would gladly give my body up so Carolyn would be safe, but I guess we have to take what we get. Hugs MK
