    i'm not surprised she did that. i guess her mother had it too, so the odds were good that if she didn't have the double mastectomy, it would come back.

    my best friend lost her mother at 52 to breast cancer, so she started getting checked when she was 30. she ended up diagnosed at 34. she had it removed, but the cancer came back 7 years later. she decided to do the double mastectomy to get it completely taken care of once and for all.

    Is your friend OK now? I hope so!

    I hope Christina Applegate has a successful recovery. She made a very tough and brave decision.

    yeah, there's no trace of it now. thanks.

    unfortunately with cancer, ther'es always the chance that it could appear somewhere else, but getting both breasts completely removed is the best way to keep it from happening in that area, at least.

    When my mother died from ovarian cancer, the doc told my sister and I (or maybe she just told me), that having our ovaries removed would not guarantee us not getting ovarian cancer. Don't know if the same applies to breast cancer. I've since had to have a hysterectomy where they took them, but I felt like I was walking around with two time bombs waiting to go off.

    I'm so behind on the news!

    Critical: Meowza! I am so impressed with what Depp, Law and Farrell did for little Matilda. And I'm surprised that neither Heath nor Michelle had their Will changed as soon as possible to include Matilda in their will after she was born. Wouldn't their lawyers be on that one?! One doesn't want to be negative, but you never know these days what can happen.


    Rattus: from me for a very long and happy life for Ellen and Portia! I'm so happy for them!

    Rattus: Wow. That is one tough decision for Christina. I'm so happy for her that she is now cancer free. I can't imagine knowing she was predisposed to it and have to make the decision so young in life. I hope she gets a really good plastic surgeon to "replace" what they had to remove if that is what Christina wants. My cousin had a cancerous lumpectomy done when she was just 30-ish and a plastic surgeon took over in the operating room and combined a tummy tuck with a mini-reconstruction. No-one would ever know for looking. And it really helped her self-esteem.

    I don't think it's so much being negtive, as it is being realistic.

    I too, hope the best for Christina, but I had a roommate and good friend whose mother, sisters, etc. all suffered from breast cancer. My friend eventually got it too, and even though she got a double mastectomy like Christina, it came back as ovarian cancer and finally killed her. They used all kinds of treatment on her, but to no avail. It was terribly sad, and we all miss her.
