Can cancer cause such a dramatic change in one’s body?

I have to share this, because I am quite surprised to know that the cancer that was living inside me, may have caused some serious issues I was having.

Since 2007 I was having some major changes in my body. I won’t go into too much detail but I thought I needed to share this. I began going months without a cycle. I was have insomnia as bad as several times a week, waking up completely drenched in sweat.

After seeing many doctors over the years we all agreed that I was peri-menopausal. Rare, due to my age but all of my symptoms pointed to this.

Fast forward to April 2009, it had been a few months since my cycle.. very used to this by now and no shock. At each Dr. apt. they wanted to do a pregnancy test just to make sure. Again this was becoming common practice over the years.

April 29th… my bilateral mastectomy to get rid of all of the cancer.

It is now July, and I have to say that my body is completely back to normal… since 2007 I have been out of whack thinking I was peri-menopausal. So strange that everything fell back into a normal rhythm right after my surgery.

I bring this up because I think this is all related. I think it is quite amazing that cancer cells can alter a body so dramatically. Hey…maybe the weight I have put on over the past two years on for no reason at all will, start to shed as well… or maybe I should stop having so much ice cream ;)….

  • Cancer really really throw your entire body out of whack. The little things you never gave thought to change into bigger issues. I always was a good sleeper, anywhere anytime…. during the months before I was diagnosed up all hours with ridiculous insomnia.
    Hopefully once we get past it our bodies will go back to some kind of normal…
