by @heidi_vinyard “I was encouraged by a friend to show my scars and tell my story. This is the first time ever that I’ve posted something like this, but knowledge and awareness is key. I was 32 when I was diagnosed with Stage III HER2+ breast cancer. Yes, young woman CAN & DO get breast cancer. I had 6 rounds of chemo, a right total mastectomy with immediate start of reconstruction at same time, 6 weeks and 3 weeks of radiation and reconstruction (implant). This year in March (one month before my 34th birthday) I received scary news, the cancer had spread to my thoracic vertebrae, staging my now at a IV. I have just finished my 7th round of chemo and have 2 more to go. Then I will be on IV maintenance drugs every 3 weeks for the rest of my life. Which I estimate will be about 50 years :) I refuse to let cancer win. Chemo sucks yes, but it’s made me see strength in myself that I never knew was there. I have a beautiful 3 year old little boy that I fight every day for and will never stop fighting. I am proud of my scars, God chose me to walk this path. He has carried me many times along it. So ladies (and men) check yourselves! If you notice any changes get it checked! @sspw #sspw will you repost?#pinksisters #warriorsinpink #survivors #nevergiveup #sspw #scars #shaysharpespinkwishes #youngwomen #youngwomencananddogetbreastcancer #mylifeaftercancer #testimony #lovingyourselfafterbreastcancer #repost #mastectomy #cancer #breastcancer #chemotherapy #stageiii #knowyourbody

The symptoms or signs of chemo-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) depend mostly on which nerves are involved. The most common symptoms are:

Pain (may be there all the time or come and go, like shooting or stabbing pain)
Burning
Tingling (β€œpins and needles” feeling) or electric/shock-like pain
Loss of feeling (can be numbness or just less ability to sense pressure, touch, heat, or cold)
Trouble using your fingers to pick up or hold things; dropping things
Balance problems
Trouble with tripping or stumbling while walking
Pressure may hurt more than usual
Temperature may hurt more than usual (mostly cold; this is called cold sensitivity)
Shrinking muscles
Muscle weakness
Trouble swallowing
Constipation
Trouble passing urine
Blood pressure changes
Decreased or no reflexes
CIPN can cause severe pain and can affect your ability to do things like walk, write, button your shirt, or pick up coins. If it gets very bad, it can cause more serious problems like changes in your heart rate and blood pressure, dangerous falls, trouble breathing, paralysis, or organ failure.

What is chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy or CIPN?

Peripheral neuropathy is a set of symptoms caused by damage to the nerves that are further away from the brain and spinal cord. These distant nerves are called peripheral nerves. They carry sensations (feeling) to the brain and control the movement of our arms and legs. They also control the bladder and bowel. Some of the chemotherapy drugs used to treat cancer damage peripheral nerves. When this happens it is called chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. Chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy (CIPN) can be a disabling side effect of cancer treatment. 🚺

Even though, I am 9years out of treatment, I still don’t have full sensations in my fingers or toes. They went numb after my chemo treatments and never returned. Because of the numbness, it’s difficult to write. Also, I often burn myself, drop things and stumble. My life after cancer. ~ Madame President
