After my bilateral mastectomy and 17 lymph nodes removed, went

After my bilateral mastectomy and 17 lymph nodes removed, went through chemo and the maintenance drug infusion hercepting I developed bad side effects. I have been slowly getting very fatigued and after doing chores I get breathless. I've always been an active woman, even now at 77. I suffer from anxiety, but why am I now feeling like I can't do household chores without getting fatigued and simply worn out?

4 weeks post op from bi lateral mastectomy with the removal of 9 lymph nodes. All pathology was clear after surgery. I underwent 5 months of chemo prior to surgery. My normal bp is 120/70 average. For the past week it has been on average 94/56 and today as low as 80/54. I am seeing a Cardiologist tomorrow as per my MD. I am dizzy with frequent headaches and my speech is slurred during conversation. A cat scan at my cancer center on Weds came back clear and 3 hours of IV hydration did nothing so I am not dehydrated. I also have a large Seroma under my right re constructed breast that has been drained once and needs to be again. My upper abdomen is also very swollen since surgery

Recently had a bilateral Mastectomy with a DIEP with Flap and still recovering, no additional cancer found in lymph nodes and advised cancer free, now advised I need to go for chemo a 2 yr regime because I was HER2 positive before surgery. If I am free of cancer why can’t I be put on an oral pill for say 5 yrs.

I was diagnosed with infiltrating lobular breast cancer . 3 lymph nodes were removed and only 1 contained a minute amount of cancerous cells. I had a bilateral mastectomy about 6 weeks ago. I have recently learned that my prolactin level is elevated (161) and after a CT scan I learned that I have swollen lymph nodes in my stomach. What does this mean? Should I be concerned about any of this?
