Last week I went from my medical work and regular caregiver position as a wife and mother to caregiver/patient advocate for my husband as we went to the ER, ambulance, ICU, hospital and back home again over the week. The great news is he will be fine! The whole experience made me think about the role of the caregiver and how it affects the patient, but also the family and the caregiver ... Read More

I just had my first mammo today 2 1/2 years post breast reduction. I was very scared, because frankly I have neuropathy from my breast reduction surgery. My glands are sore and I get transient chest pain that I really cannot differentiate from what other issues it could be.
