Long story short, double breast cancer both sides, surgery, delayed healing (4 1/2 months), 2 seperate rounds of radiotherapy, second of which is coming to an end this week.
Feel so low, when I should be feeling ecstatic. Is this normal?
Found a new lump in left breast last week, breast care nurse felt it and asked consultant to take a look and she refused and said make an appt for 2 weeks when radiotherapy finished. In my rational brain I know it's probably scar tissue, but to be dismissed out of hand was a blow. An ulrrasound would have reassured me straight away and now I'm left with the fear and dread again (I know you will all understand that).
Consultant said I can come on the 18th, but no ultrasound facilities that day, so might have to come back again if she thinks I need one or wait until March?? I'm a patient, still receiving treatment, surely this cant be right?
I have an appt with my oncologist today, do you think I should mention it to him? My consultant has made me feel worthless and a nuisance and I feel like I don't even want to see her now.
Your advice and support would be much appreciated ladies.
