    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Ok, so the good news is that though m;y tdoc ended up having to have a masectomy after all, in the end, she does not have to do radiation or chemotherapy -she just has to have hormone treatment for the next 5-10 years, and the doctors believe that the chance of breat cancer reoccuring is very low!!

    She has already started back to work this week, and I get to see her the 12th of March! Wooooooo hoooooo! I'm so happy for her!

    So happy for her!!! That's really good news. I've had two members of my mom's side of the family die from cancer and two survive. It's a lousy disease. Luckily I didn't inherit the Braca gene, so my chances of getting it are low. Still I've had some scares even at my age. Luckily it was all chalked up to a dang reaction to the deodorant I was using. Guess I used too many different brands as a kid and now can only use Suave. At least it's inexpensive!!!!
