Upgrade from a 1 to a 2

Been to hospital for results of lumpectomy, was worried, lump bigger than 1st though, now at 4cm, so it’s a mastectomy , and out of the two nodes they took out its in one of them, so they are coming out as well, this is all happening in Monday, as we are luckily private, shocked stunned upset is an understatement , this feels real now x

Hi Susan

It just seems the bad news keeps coming at first doesn’t it? Be kind to yourself and remember the tests and everything are there so the medics vcan put you on exactly the right treatment to sort you out. You’ll feel so much better once you start tratment and know that it’s being dealt with.

lots love
