Just thought I would say hello. I was communicating with you when we were both having a lumpectomy earlier in the year. I was just reading this and thought oh no you were doing so well after your lumpectomy. I should think you are totally mixed up now I would be the same. Look after yourself and you will get through it. Keep posting would be most interested in your progress.
Hi Teresa, I found out I have brca2 on 11th August. I am waiting to see my breast surgeon to discuss my options later this month. I had a wire guided lumpectomy in April following a mammogram which showed some high grade dcis. I was due to have radiotherapy at the end of June but instead my oncologist referred me for genetic testing. So now I am facing a bilateral mastectomy with immediate reconstruction as well as an oopharectomy. I'm 44 and have finished having my family but still the thought of a surgical menopause is scary. Have you decided what reconstruction you are going to have? I felt 'lucky' in April that I only needed to have a lumpectomy and a little ripped off as its healed so well!
I'm a mix of emotions right now to be honest so happy to discuss experiences with you if it helps. Take care, Princess bear xx
