    Are you planning on not having treatment for a while and if so why, or did you notice a change a while ago?

      I was just going to let it go, because I hate the fact of the drugs. But I began treatment today

      I am so glad that you have decided to start your treatment, the sooner you begin the sooner it will be over. Breast cancer left untreated has only one outcome and it is final, no going back. Good luck. You treatment will be over before you know it...

      I am so glad that you have decided to start your treatment, the sooner you begin the sooner it will be over. Breast cancer left untreated has only one outcome and it is final, no going back. Good luck. You treatment will be over before you know it and it will just be a memory.

    Michele, as has been written, it depends on the type of breast cancer, the stage, the aggressiveness of the cells, etc There just isn't a standard answer as every woman's breast cancer is different. My breast cancer was missed for 7 months. By the time I could feel it it was 2.2cm and one lymph node involved. My choice would be not to put off treatment no matter what. Take care, Sharon

    Mine had not been there long. It was stage 2b and 2.5 cm. my doc told me plain and simple that if I did not have treatment he had no question that I would be dead within two years, I got treatment . You have to make that decision, I worked with a day ten years ago who opted not to get treatment because she jut found out she was pregnant and hose to wait until after delivery. It was two late or her. Her baby was fine but she passed away before the baby was three months old. O sad

    Hi Michele, I could feel my lump for almost two years so the cells had been there much longer. I had a grade one-slow moving type of cancer.

      This is really hard, especially after my husband of 17 years just had an affair and turned out to be a selfish stranger I never knew at all! I started treatment

      Wow, Michele! I thought you wondered if you had waited too long for treatment. If I had understood you were considering not doing treatment I would have hollered REALLY loud. Glad you started. Keep it up. Sorry for the added personal tragedy of a broken marriage. It's hard enough to do this battle with support from a spouse but don't give up on yourself because of it. There is an eye in the center of a hurricane that is calm and the storm doesn't batter the land. Think of your treatment as the eye, where your focus is on you. Rest in the skilled hands of your medical team as they minister to you. If you're a person of faith, now is the time to snuggle up in the hands of a loving God that can lift you above the storm until you regain your strength to move forward in hope. Please set aside all those nasty why's for all of the mess and focus on the task at hand. You can do this one day at a time. Hurrah that you took the first step to a long and healthy life. Jo :-D
