Hi Lilly,Hi there and welcome,
No you are not an idiot just distressed because of your sister's health issues. And who wouldn't be.
We have had a couple of ladies here who have had breast cancer and Lupus also. They are a bit quiet in posting lately and that's probably due to the time of year. I can tell you though that both had treatment and are doing very well right now. In fact I remember one of them saying that the chemo for the breast cancer she had seemed to help knock the lupus into a quiet state at least for a while.
I will be thinking of you both and wishing you well, if your sister feels she needs to talk to anyone of course she and you are both welcome here.
I can't really give you any more insight into the situation as I have not had to deal with it myself but if it's support you need or just somewhere to vent or ask about the lupus in general then know that we are here.
Hello Claire,Hi Sandra, I am sorry to hear you are going through this. I hope it gets dealt with very quickly and you can take the time you need to regroup and heal.............Claire x
Hi,Im new here, so hope this is right. Im after some info on how breast cancer may affect lupus. Anyone been in this situation? thanks.
Hi Lazy legs,Hi Sandra,
Just wanted to say I am sorry to hear about your diagnosis. You should let your rheumy know. He/she may have some advice for you.
No I can't say that I or anyone I know have had both happen. I am sorry that this has come up with you. I can tell you both are toll taking on the body so rest is a much for you. Do you have a rhuemy, if so I would say that you should speak with them and see if they have any thoughts on how the cancer will or may affect the lupus. I wish I could help you more. My heart goes out to you and if you need someone to talk to feel free to email me or if you see me in the chat room join me would like to chat with you. Sometimes all it takes to feel a little better is someone to listen to us. I wish you the best in your fight for recovery.
