I am The Princess and the Pea ( hopefully mine will have a happy ending no pun intended LOL)



Sooooooooooooo, I find myself once again back at the doctor’s office for another issue. I mean seriously does this crap ever stop??? Today’s issue is pain in my tail bone. I literally have a pain in the ass! I blame myself for putting this off for about 10 months but, I’ve been kind of busy with my hysterectomy and the second breast cancer scare. I’m sick of going to the doctor’s office if you know what I mean.
Yesterday I finally got to my wit’s end and couldn’t take the pain anymore. No matter if I’m walking standing or sitting, well especially sitting .I am in so much pain there is nothing I have found that gives me any sort of relief.Of course in my mind the Big C is to blame for all of this. I keep wondering if the chemotherapy could have done something to my bones? Could possibly could a metathesis somewhere else my body? Of course with my luck it has come back in my ass, as if it wasn’t big enough as it is lol !!!!I know this might sound crazy but it’s very real to me.

You have to see my chair at work I’m at the point were I have an orthopedic pillow and two doughnut gel filled pillows .
The pillows are so high up I actually have to hop onto my chair to get on! I just know people walking by me think i have a RAGING case of hemrroids lol!

This may be a pea, but my pillows are just as high!!

This may be a pea, but my pillows are just as high!!

Today I found myself back at the hospital having several x-rays of my tailbone taken.They said I have a nice sacrum, “why thank you I said”. I have to say I have never been compliment on that body part before lol. I hope and pray in the end (haha get it ,in the end ) everything will be okay. I have a feeling I will end up having an MRI. I will be interesting having the other end of my body scanned for a change! Next stop seems to be pain management…


What to do, what to do???

What to do, what to do???


About chemobrainandmore

My name is Heather and I am now 39 yrs old living at the Jersey shore. I was diagnosed Jan 2011 with stage II A breast cancer right after my 36th birthday. Sadly I was married for just a year at the time.I had four rounds of chemo 33 round of radiation a lumpectonly and MANY ,MANY biopsies. As if that was not enough I ended up having a total hysterectomy summer of 2012. And then this past July 2013 I under went a bilateral mastectomy and I am still under going reconstruction. I am a mom, a wife and a survivor! I have had more ups and downs then I have fingers and toes! But through it all I have had a smile on my face and try to laugh my way through it all. I have done two Strides Walk for breast cancer and I am extremely proud of how much I have raised ( I made pacesetter status!) I enjoy laughing and making people laugh, and if my blog can shed some light on cancer and make one person laugh at ,or with me ,then the fight has been worth it. Thank you for reading about my life and taking a ride with me on this journey. Feel free to reach out to me, I love being able to pay it forward and help others!

  1. I really like your blog, I like your positive spirit and sense of humour in spite of all this cancer schmancer. I am just so sorry that you’re going through this too but know that you aren’t alone and there are people all over the world rooting for you to be fully well again.

  2. Hey Kindred Spirit! I totally get your blog and the humor that goes with it! You write very well! As for the pain… Tell me what it is because I am experiencing severe joint pain. All the best, Aum

    • Hi there! I am glad to see your fizz starting to come in! The joint pain I have is bad in my hands and feet . Its sharp and dull at the same time. My major bones feel like I was ran through the dryer like an old towel lol. Thankfully it should only be one more day of this pain. Then i get the infusion again in August. No one really tells you about all the pains you feel and I assume everyone is different. Where are you feeling it?
