Hi there. I'm a 36 year old from ireland diagnosed last July. I had 2 lumpectomies & then had to go for mastectomy on left breast as they kept finding tiny tumours. Had my mastectomy in Sept . The recuperation wasn't as bad as I expected, yes I still get sore but it's bearable. I'm lucky in so far as I didn't need chemo or radiotherapy just tamoxifen for 5 years. I'm waiting for my last operation in reconstruction where they remove expander & put in implant, but they've been out of stock since xmas!!! I just want it over so I can recover & get back to work. I feel so frustrated by this & struggling financially as well. But hey ho, chin up. Well that's my story. Hope it helps give someone else some hope.
