November 7th I started taking arimidex for the next 5 years.
Today is the third day I have taken this. I am taking you on this journey with me as I continue on the road to my complete healing.

February 13, 2017~ My sixth month mammogram was today. All clear. Praise God!
I will have another one in 6 months on both breasts. I am already thanking God for a good report.

March 7, 2017~ I meet with the surgeon who did my lumpectomy, Praising God all the way!

May 2, 2017 ~ I had been on Fosamax once a week. I had went back to my oncologist and mentioned about taking Boniva. You only take in once a month. I had been on it about 2 weeks and knew that something was not right. My hip bones hurt terribly and I hurt in my groin area. I called my doctor and told him I was very fatigued and was not feeling well at all. To many aches that I did not have before I went on the Boniva. The doctor also wanted to check my blood and make sure nothing else was going on. He said, "He was not expecting anything to show up." He took me off the fosamax til my next appointment so my body can get rid of the boniva. So, what was suppose to be a good thing once a month turned into a not so good thing.

Later that evening I received a phone call from the nurse and she said, " My blood sugar was low" My blood sugar has never been low. Never.

After I got off the phone with her I went and looked up the side effects for boniva and found out it makes your hips and joints hurt. It also makes your sugar levels go up and down. Some people may can take boniva I am not one of them.

So, today is August 7th, 2017. I have been back on fosamax for two weeks now. I feel really good. I just past my year mark of when I was diagnosed with breast cancer August 3, 2016. Can I get a shout out. My 6 month mammogram was great. I will have another in six months. I expect it to be the same.

I am doing this blog to help others as they go through similar cases of breast cancer. I also want to be able to look back in years to come to where God has brought me from.
