Health knowledge made personal


i am an American living in Israel. I teach English and have 3 children and an "Ok" marriage. Nothing to brag about. Last December i found a lump which was cancer. I had 2 lumpectomies and a mastectomy and reconstruction all within 6 weeks. I am taking tamoxifen and have been OK besides finding it very hard to keep weight off. I teach part time now and spend more time on things i like . I love to paint and enjoy music and nature.

I recently had a double mast/with recon since I'm BRACCA 1 positive.  (Jewish Ashkenozi)  I lived in Israel as a kid.  My family made Aliyah.   How are you feeling now?
