Hi I am new here and grateful for the opportunity to learn from others. My breast cancer was picked up from a routine mammogram. I got results yesterday after a lumpectomy and 1 lymph taken 2 weeks ago. I had a 12mm lump and some LCIS and all is gone now. Clear margins and no lymphs involved. ER+.
I have been researching hours and hours and am under a nutritional therapist so that I can do all I can to alter my body's environment to prevent this happening again. To me cancer is a symptom of other things that our immune system has let grow. So eliminating meat, dairy, flours, sugars and juicing a lot is my life now along with some supplements. Its encouraging that there are many people round the world doing this and getting great results. But this happened to me as I am travelling through England so, unfortunately I am missing the networks and real life people I hope to find once home again.
The really odd thing is I am feeling worse today AFTER the results than I have since I was diagnosed 2 months ago. I can't explain it other than I was holding it together and now I know what I have, I need to have a plan for the rest of my life and dealing with people's reactions as well.
Thanks for letting me get that off my chest! so to speak...
