Stage 2 breast cancer

I’ve been diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer and have to have a CT scan to see if it has spread anywhere else. This is such a scary time as I have 2 fantastic daughters a 12 year old is taking it very hard and I’m scared it has gone elsewhere and there will be nothing they can do 

Godders78 sorry you find yourself on here please do ring the number on here and speak to a nurse and also maybe the someone like me option too please do take it a day at a time, step by step, I’m sure we’ve all felt like we’d been chucked out of a plane with no parachute at the time of diagnosis and the checking stage because you don’t know what’s going on and it can feel like free fall. But please remember you are in control because even though you never wanted to be in this position you will be making your own choices and your team will take care of you and we’re all here at bcn for you each step of the way ask away use this as your safe space if you need to where others just get it and understand a bit :two_hearts: :two_hearts: :sparkles: :sparkles: Shi xx

Hi Godders78

I’m so sorry you’re having to go through all this. But I sooo HOPE you can take some consolation from the fact, that there are MANY women on here, who have SURVIVED.

My 1st boob was Grade 3. That was back in 2005/6. I’m STILL HERE, darlin girl. So are many others, Grade 4, ongoing diagnoses and treatments, and have also SURVIVED this s**t disease.

Doesn’t stop your worrying about it, though, does it. Hope your scans give good, clear results for you, Godders. 

This Forum is a godsend, invaluable. Keep using it throughout your treatments. I’m SURE you’ll find it a great help. 

Sending much LOVE and STRENGTH to you, to KICK BC in the BUTT, girl  Delly XX 

Hi, just wanted to say I know exactly how you’re feeling right now. I was diagnosed with stage 2, grade 3 breast cancer in October 2019. After my initial diagnosis I then had to have a ct scan and and bone scan. I had convinced myself it had spread beyond the breast and lymph node in my armpit. I couldn’t sleep or eat, those first few weeks were just horrible. my boys were 10 and 13 at the time.
I finally got the news that there was no evidence of spread and once my treatment started two weeks later I felt better. 
I just wanted you to know that lots of us have been where you are right now and regardless of the outcome of your scan there are lots of treatments available and once you know your plan you will feel better. 
I decided to take what ever my oncologist could give me and threw everything at it… it wasn’t easy but it worked. 
Sending lots of hugs x 

Hello - I had same and know what you were going through.  Hope your CT was ok. I found the uncertainties around this the scariest - more than the diagnosis.

Not sure how I got through the week’s waiting for results.  But once you get your treatment plan and get started on taking action, I felt more empowered and in control.  I had to wait 10 weeks for surgery which was also scary but again I made my mind focus on getting the BC out of my body ASAP.  I decided to become a warrior and fight this hard.  Things got better from then on for me mentally ?
