Jane: One thing I’ve noticed and I mentioned this to the nurse who does my chemo. I don’t know if it’s unusual or not. I really haven’t ever heard anybody else talk about it, but the cancer was in my left breast. It had my tumor there and the lymph nodes in my left arm more affected and so they excised all of that but the surgeon had told me that the margins of the tumor weren’t clean and so most likely there were the cancer cells in there. And so what I noticed is the day after I have the chemo, this breast gets incredibly red. This one doesn’t the one with milk in sure doesn’t, so I don’t know if that’s actually the chemo going after and killing those cells if so there a lot there. But it may just be more of the generalized kind of reaction to the drug in the tissue itself. I really don’t know, and nobody has really talked to me a lot about that. But that’s something I want to find out more about because it’s a pretty interesting phenomena. Female: Rid off the red most breast Jane: Yeah, rid off the red most breast.
