My journey

I was diagnosed with breast cancer 2010, had a mastectomy and lymph node removal. I them had chemotherapy, followed by radiotherapy then reconstruction. Unfortunately while being tested for chemo they found a lung cancer and removed one of my lobes. I returned to full time employment as a mental health nurse. I developed lymphoedema and have to wear a compression sleeve. I had been well but have recently been diagnosed with sarcoidosis, which some say isn't related but II have my doubts.
