Thanks for updating, I am sorry to hear its been confirmed but you sound positive and that's what you need to get you through.

You're currently mirroring my journey, 2cm right breast, 1 1/2 left breast, diagnosed Thursday morning lumpectomies the following Wednesday, just think, this time next week it will have been removed from your body, and you'll be curled up at home resting, xxxx

Sorry that is is cancer, but like me it is early and small, that was me 3 years ago, assume it is ER+ type ? So you will have tablet treatment after your surgery and radiotherapy?

So that’s the good news it’s small no treatable, keep us all informed.

Take care Deb x

Thank you for replying, he said it's a hormone type one, an i tick all the boxes for some positive things, it's ductal something or other ,an i fit into an 80% category for the most common type x

Yes thought it must be ER + as other types you would have be having chemo.

Mine was ductal also.

Speak to the Nurse at your Follow Up Appointment & get her to go over all the details, mine were written down in the front of the booklet plus the following treatment.

I had what’s known as TNBC ~ Triple Negative Breast Cancer, l also had some DCIS’s ~ Ductal Carcinoma In Situ ~ but l also had the lump l discovered my self.

I had a Mastectomy followed by Chemo & that was three years ago, l’m going for my 3 year Review next month!

Hang on in there, you can do it!

We all did & here to tell the tale.

Best Wishes

So sorry hun that it's confirmed but again like the other women have said it's early so you are very lucky and all sounds positive. Mine too was early and initially after ultrasound and biopsy they thought if was 2.5cm and when they removed it they found it was only 1.7 so you never know. The worst part is over with the waiting and uncertainty and now you know for definite what you are dealing with so stay strong and positive and you have this. Best of luck . Xxx

Thank you for replying, yes now I definitely know, my lump has been measured at just over 2cm on the ultrasound, so like you it could be a bit smaller than they think, when I seen a picture of it yesterday , it looked tidy on the screen, he doesn't that it is in my lympnodes so I'm just hoping for radiotherapy treatment x

Oh Jane thanks for replying, glad you a had a good weekend , yes Lumpectomy in the morning, I'm really nervous but all you fabulous ladies have reassured me it will be over before I know it...Hope so!! Had all my pr-op assessments done today all normal, didn't like my last app which was a injection in the nipple that was a bit intense, there was a group of us ladies all in a waiting room, we started chatting about whos got what size lump, who got what grade, oh it was so overwhelming, I came out and just cried in the car on the journey home, my poor husband just kept rubbing my leg, and saying it's gonna be Ok, you got to keep it together😣

I sent my husband to the gym, he was with me until they called me through, we didn’t have a bed until after the Surgery, just a Waiting Room like at the Airport, so l thought the gym was the best place for him.

It’s so much harder on the other halves & your Children, my ‘Boys’ are fully grown men & it was really hard on them!

This time tomorrow it’ll all be over, try & sleep tonight if you can, easier said than done!

Best Wishes

Hi Jane just thought I would give you a little update, as you know my surgery was yesterday, it all went to plan no problems, but my recovery was a bit wobbly, I couldn't seem to shake of the morphine they had give me, I couldn't walk properly for hours afterwards , anyway the nurses let me go at 10.30pm last night, I was still a bit woozy but with my husband with me I was Ok, got home about 11pm, I am sore I'm not Going to lie, so I'm just in bed with a cushion resting in my armpit to take some of the discomfort away, I've been taking my pain relief as instructed an now just need to take it easy for a few days thanks for all your reassuring messages, you have been great support even though we have never met, I can tell that if we did, we would be friends .....speak soon .....Vicky xx😘
