So I was told I have stage 1, grade 1 invasive ductal carcinoma ER positive. Still waiting on HER-2 results they said these can take longer and these results will determine if I need chemotherapy 😩
I am having a double mastectomy with immediate reconstruction as cancer is in both breasts and calcifications in right breast could mean the start of a second tumour there too.
This could all change following further test results, waiting for MRI scan also. Not sure how I feel really was hoping for all the answers today, I know it’s not always possible but feel like I’m waiting again, and it’s sending my emotions all over the place.
Big hugs to all

Thank you soo much for your reply feeling really overwhelmed at the minute and scared and a yes a note pad is a good idea, I think I have come to terms with my diagnosis now, can’t run from it it is there and needs to be dealt with, Hopefully once I have treatment plan and know exactly what I’m dealing with I will feel better, just petrified of what is coming, don’t think my life will ever be the same again and it breaks my heart ❤️ and feel guilty that my family has to go through this with me 😩
Kerryma ❤️ You are amazing too ❤️ We are with you tomorrow 👭 and bcn is always here however much or as little as you need ❤️ Step by step and day by day whatever your results are ❤️ Maybe take a notebook and take a few notes down if that might help ❤️ Do remember your team have seen it all before and will take care of you ❤️ 💕💕✨✨Shi xx
I was diagnosed with breast cancer last Friday, to say my world was turned upside down is an understatement. I struggled to eat and sleep the first few days, and every waking moment all I can think about is my diagnosis, every little ache and pain I assume is because Of bc.
What I know so far from mammogram and ultrasound scan is I have a 35mm tumour in my left breast and a 10mm tumour in my right with calcium deposits. They don’t seem too worried about my right but are really concerned about my left, no sign of infected lymph nodes at the moment.
I had a biopsy the same day and have an appointment tomorrow with the consultant, I’m guessing this is for my official diagnosis and treatment plan.
Hormone therapy and chemotherapy were mentioned after mammogram and ultrasound, I am absolutely petrified of what tomorrow may bring, think my biggest fear of all is chemotherapy 😩
Any tips of how to get through tomorrow and the rest of this awful journey would be very much appreciated.
I have been obsessed with this forum from day one and it has helped reading other peoples experiences, yous are all amazing and soo strong, don’t know how u all do it.
sending hugs to u all
