  • Lack of cohesive care post initial treatment

    Posted October 20 by Phoebe

    Hello to All During my Cancer journey, since first diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003, then a diagnosis of Squamous cell Ca. on my Vocal Chord, both very problematic to this day, I have found a total lack of multy disciplinary care. I have ended up with a large number of specialists that do not c...

  • Lack of knowledge about lympheodema

    Posted October 3 by Kula

    Thanks for your reply Sue. The comment you made "I guess improved surgical techniques now often result in minimum or no lympheodema following removal." is similar to what the Cancer Council manager said. This is so far from the truth. Research is now showing that up to 52 percent of those who h...

  • Cancer Council abandons Lympheodema sufferers.

    Posted October 2 by Kula

    I always thought the Cancer Council was for the benefit of people who have/had cancer. Not so! I have been attending the Cancer Foundation's Lympheodema clinic at Crawford house for nearly 4 years. This excellent service has helped me deal with the life long chronic condition of lympheodema. I have...

    My mammogram last week came back clear (right breast) so really, logically I should be able to move on, put it behind me and be happy, just like I was at the start of this term.

  • Final chemo

    Posted April 28 by Chris

    Soooo, had my final chemo session today, as I was was being plugged in a song came on the radio that means a lot to me, Big Country's In A Big Country.

    Posted April 16 by Kula

    One day and one week ago I was the fittest at my work even though I am in the older group. It is now 1 week since I had my right breast removed.
