Just been diagnosed

Got my results today and have been told I need a lumpectomy followed by radiotherapy which has been scheduled for the 27th Nov. I was offered surgery on the 20th but turned it down due to an important family thing, am I mad or just trying to be too normal. I plan on going into work tom as usual as well. Why don’t i feel anything?? Not anger, fear or even numbness. Maybe I am numb and I just don’t know it!!

Hi kar235

I too have recently been diagnosed. All my family and friends have broke down crying thought I was going mad as I have felt the same as you. I rang my breast care nurse yesterday. She told me there is no hard fast rule, I may not get upset until my treatment is all finished. Don’t know whether this helps, but good luck hope all go’s well, Janet
