Hi , on friday aweek and a half  after mastectomy and node clearance , got told she had removed all the cancer , with clear margins , on cloud nine but cannot help feeling guilty , as a guy in my street died at ayoung age , leaves a lovely family devastated , xxx

I think its only natural to feel the way you do.  I think we tend to put ourselves in others shoes when we hear bad news like you have just posted.  You can only focus on your treatment and hope that the family you speak about have the support they need to cope with their loss.  Good luck for the future.
