    I was diagnose with Invasive Ductal Carcinoma with Grade II Positive for tumor and HER2 negative. I did 4 months of chemo and I went every three weeks. I was suppose to do chemo and radiation but since opt for mastectomy my Oncologist didn’t think it was necessary for radiation. Am still on Tamoxifen and I was told that I may need to take it for a life time. Am on my 5 year of cancer free as of today. I had my check up early this year and am still doing very well. My problem is now that I can’t seems to get the weight off. I don’t eat much and I get very full very fast. I’ve been watching my intake of food but for some reason, I just can’t seem to let the weight off. When I first started with my journal I was 130 and now 170. I’ve been on antibiotics consecutive this past months. I’ve had yeast infection 4 times but I just been going through so much this past year. Now am home and I now have to dial with my sickly father.
