I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The options have been discussed with me and my husband also my consultant Rheumatologist The first option was a mastectomy but due to my other medical conditions that for the time being is not an option plus chemo,radiotherapy and some of the hormone drugs. However there is one hormone pill that I am going to try and keep my fingers crossed I will not reject it.
I am lucky I have friends who are very supportive we have no family except one cousin who lives down south so we can't expect practical help but telephone chat is good.
We have a date for my husband to have his knee replaced that's in two weeks time so focusing on how I will manage during his stay in hospital also when he comes home. I am pleased to say I have always been a very positive,organised person now is the time to put it in motion again. I suppose I am feeling angry I really do think vasculitis is enough to have to manage but now cancer also has come my way when both of us were looking forward to creating a new pathway for ourselves and we have to put that back on hold. I think the awful tiredness we get with it needs to be managed but the pills I have been given make you very tired just wondering how I am going to stay upright!!!
