Hi

Does anyone else feel like breast cancer has affected your feminity? I’m on a chemo pill called anastrozole and I feel like a sort of remorse... My body has aged a lot through my treatment. Can anyone else relate to this?

Thank you

Hello missbeautiful describes? Have you ever felt less "feminine" or that the treatment has taken a toll on your body? If so, how did you deal with these feelings?

hi mossbeautiful, I can totally relate. My body image, my femininity, everything was affected by cancer and treatments. Some days I'm coping, other not so much. Therapy helps, in my case. I don't know what I would do without it.
