Cancer – A year later
In a lot of my previous posts I have talked about getting back to normal, getting back into my fitness and normal daily routine. It been a year and 3 months since first diagnosis and it has been a year and 2 weeks since my surgery. So a year on how are things?… Well I didn’t have any major treatment after so besides recovering from my operation i could get back to my life pretty quickly. Work is back to normal, life goes on and my health is all good so as far as I am concerned that short hiccup in my life is done and gone.
While out at a christmas party last Saturday someone put their arm around my waist and squeezed me and the pain in my back was dreadful. This was basically because of nerve damage from my operation something which the surgeons say may get better over time but may not. Then when someone took a picture of me in a group I had a quick look and realised the ever so slight bit of cleavage I had showing was completely wonkey and misshaped and I was far from showing off a good set of boobs!!
Don’t get me wrong I am in no way shape or form complaining and am really happy with how it’s all gone but just these 2 little incidents were reminders that despite me being Cancer free now and healthy, I’m always living with it and will be reminded of. The way I see it though Is i may have wonkey boobs and a nerve damaged back but I am still here to tell the tale and got off lightly compared to a lot of people who suffer a lot longer than a year! I just hope they hurry up and find a cure so that more people can get over it quickly, stop suffering and carry on with their lives like I am fortunate enough to be able to do!!
