After finding some lumps two years ago and also in May of this year I went along last Monday thinking that this one was a cyst again… for some reason it did not show up on the mammogram I had in April and also on Monday, it must be a shy one…
I was taken aback when I was told that it wasn’t a cyst and I did fear the worst as my Mother had breast cancer. Got the news yesterday and whilst I am reeling, I am optimistic that this can be sorted.
Due to the history and finding the initial lumps I took control and decided that I had to get myself fitter and healthier, so here I am never felt better 2 1/2 stone lighter and been running and going to the gym 2 to 3 times a week. So hopefully this will all help towards my recovery.
The coarse of action is Tamoxifen, I took first one yesterday, booked in for Op on the 2nd December, decided to go for the lumpectomy and then take it from there – I was told that the likelihood is that I will then go for Radiation Treatment, depends what they find in the glands.
I have a question regarding the Tamoxifen I felt a little under the weather today does it have that effect? also started with the hot flushes already which means it’s doing is job, right? Poor hubby sat with jumper on and I have the patio door open.
So here I am at the beginning of the journey that some of you have already followed, scared and apprehensive but keep telling myself one stage at a time… my mind has been doing some racing.
