So I had to change my rheumy appointment as I had to have an operation. It turns out I have breast cancer, and with my huge family history of breast cancer plus the type of cancer they've found in me, the surgeon is recommending a preventative bilateral mastectomy. I hope I look as good as Angelina Jolie afterwards! Such fun!
I think the Lupus is contributing to how tired and weak I feel following my recent surgery. It's been just over two weeks and I still feel absolutely knackered all the time - even more so than usual. My aches and pains are as bad as ever so I seem to be living on co-dydramol.
But I'm not downhearted! I feel very lucky that I'm being well looked after at the breast unit, and it's all been caught early as I have yearly mammograms. I go to the rheumy on 5th June so am praying they might be able to do something to help me with the Lupus. And this site keeps me smiling.
