Hi all, just wanted to introduce myself, I'm new here.
June is the anniversary of my lumpectomy, so I've had a year to process what's happened so far and I'm feeling ready to reach out into the community.
My breast cancer was picked up on a routine mammogram, there was no lump. The lumpectomy didn't have clear margins so I have had a mastectomy and DIEP reconstruction and I am taking Tamoxifen.
I am happily married, with two brilliant teenagers. We live in a gorgeous bit of the UK where I love to get out into the garden or out walking in nature. I'm an avid reader and also enjoy experimenting with new food.
I'm an EFT practitioner, but I've taken time off work to really heal my mind, body and spirit. After putting on a lot of weight for surgery and then post surgery, I've managed to lose more than I gained.
Cancer was a shock, but it hasn't wiped the smile off my face. I'm here to learn more steps as I dance into the future with a cancer diagnosis. I'm happily reaching out a hand for anyone just starting out who has questions that I can answer.
