“I downplayed my own journey, because I didn’t think it was traumatic enough to be that to be worthy of needing help.” – Abigail

I learned to be my own medical advocate years ago. In 2003 I had back surgery. It was a lumbar fusion with a metal rod on each side of my spine. After the swelling went down, I began having electrical shocks. In my back. I was told this is normal and would subside. If not, then we will take them out. I told them I’m not waiting and after X-rays and a mri, which showed the rods touching my nerve, out they came!
Then, 5 years ago, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr tried to talk me into an implant . Didn’t want it, didn’t get it. But then the oncologist wanted me to do chemo and radiation. So, I asked for plan b. So, I took a pill a day that blocked estrogen..screwed with my body like crazy. Supposed to take it for 5 years. But, when Covid hit I called and told them I was getting off of it. I needed to know, if I got sick, whether it was side affects or real sickness. Now, here I am 5 years after surgery, and no signs of cancer. Listen to your body! Doctors can only advise from their experience and education..
