Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with grade 3 breast cancer on 1 March and had a wired local excision (lumpectomy) and 25 lymph nodes removed on 23rd March; 5 had cancer in. My surgeon is confident they have got everything but I'm now facing chemo, hormone and radiotherapy in the months to come. Had to cancel our booked summer holiday but perhaps a nice short break in the UK in the Autumn? After all health comes first. The good thing is that the investigations into this also led to my diagnosis of Hashimoto's disease - an auto-immune thyroid condition, which can now also be treated!
