Well having been on a high as it was my last day at work, I got the dreaded phone call from genetics. I wasn't expecting it so soon as they said 3 months and I was only tested in mid July.
Basically I am BRCA 1 positive. I suppose it answers why I got OC at 46. So now I have the 80% chance of getting breast cancer. Oh yippee. Like I haven't had enough with the OC. 😩
The only good news is that BRCA1 apparently doesn't increase risk of cancer for my two boys although obviously they have a 50:50 chance of inheriting it and then a 50:50 chance of passing it on to any
children they may have.
Feeling quite down. Anyone else out there BRCA1? Have you had treatment/prevention options? Apparently I'll get annual MRI/mammograms but what about drugs?
Advice please lovelies.
