I am so thankful for everyone's prayers for my mother. She got through the surgery fine and said she has not had much pain at all. She was diagnosed as Stage 2, and after going over her medical information and considering her age, the oncologist decided to not do chemo or radiation and felt she was a good candidate to take a fairly new treatment. She will take a pill called Anastrozole once a day for five years. Of course, she will be constantly checked by the oncologist to make sure it is working. So far she has not had the side effects listed and says she feels fine. There are numerous side effects that could happen and I am glad to hear that she has not had these ill effects so far. Thank you for praying for her and continue to do so!
