My story

On the 9th November 2012 - On my Husband's birthday I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

After a roller coaster 3 weeks of biopsys, bone scans, cts and surgury (mastectomy of the right breast), I dont think my emotions have really had a chance to catch up.

Oncology is next week to find out what chemo I will need after Christmas.  :)

Teeth problems after chemo

Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone has had problems with their teeth after chemo.

I am experiencing cracks, chips and tooth falling away from my excisting fillings.

I also find the emamel now is no where near as strong and I am having to use a very soft tooth brush all the time.

Please help - I am getting rather concerned.

Well surgury went well and healing slowly, drain tubes came out yesterday, after being in for 14 days, was told it wasn't doing much, but now i have to go and get it asperated as a pocket of fluid has formed under the skin. its like i have a waterbed for a boob :) . have to laugh about it or would spend all day crying.if its not one thing its another :) the never ending roller coaster that we cant get off at the momment. 

off to Oncology on wednesday 19th to find out the chemo plan for after christmas.
