DCIS - 28 years old and scared

Re: DCIS - 28 years old and scared

Hi Michelle, it is a very scary time but this forum is great for support so you have come to the right place. I don't know how long til it is all sorted but my diagnosis was 7th Sept and I've been told to aim for after Christmas - at the earliest- for a return to work. The waiting truly is the worst part - every appointment brings worries!! Try to stay in the day and get all the support you can xxx

DCIS - 28 years old and scared

Morning,
I went to the gp in august as had blood coming out of my nipple. Told likely blocked milk gland and very common, had them removed in September results came back last week to say I had a 20mm area of DCIS that needed to be removed. I then had a mammogram which found another area, which I will have a biopsy on on Wednesday. I've been prewarned I will need a mastectomy, one boob is good though. Not worried about the op or losing my boob but the dcis part specially as there are two areas now and I'm still quite young the consultant said it was rare in my age group. It is this waiting around I don't like. How long from finding out to being back on form and should I be getting gene tested, what about lymphs so many uncertainties x x x
