Waiting is hard

I have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Had a mammogram, ultrasound and biopsy. I have two lumps in my breast and decided on mastectomy. Now I am just waiting for the call on the date. It’s the waiting that’s so hard.


@barb709 the waiting/not knowing is the hardest part I found. I hope you hear soon and as I said to my husband “let’s get this show on the road and get it done with”. Thinking of you and remember there’s always someone here when you need some company x
