Got an appointment with surgeon today...last week I was diagnosed with a papilloma with suspected DCIS can you please tell me what to expect ..
First of all, you're defo not a bad person! It's just one of those things, but after the time you've been through, you need it like a hole in the head.
As Meri says, as it's been caught early, a full recovery is the usual outcome, so thank goodness it was picked up when it was. There are loads of us here who are now out the other side & back to life as normal.
wishing you all the very best
Hi Salina, everyone here is so supportive.
I have had my op and just started on hor one treatment and start radiotherapy in a week or so, 15 sessions like you.
So your DCIS has now been removed, thankfully, so you need to have hormone treatment?
It is a hard journey, yet one full of such hope now due to great advancements in treatments.
Sounds like you have been treated at early stage, even though stressful, that is good news. Yet surgery is not pleasant and having an infection makes it worse. I feel quite manhandled, my poor breast so sore, scarred, and emotions all over the place.
Please think of calling the helpline 0808 800 6000
Talking with a person who understands and can advise is so helpful.
You are not a bad person at all, you sound so loving and caring , unfortunately anyone can have this diagnosis.
I am disabled and help a lot of other disabled people, I know how exhausting it is being a carer and advocating for your daughter. Especially with a system under such pressure and therefore you maybe not getting all the help you should.
Have you asked Social Services for your own Carers Assessment? I am assuming you live in UK? if so please do ask for one as most importantly helps you. They could arrange some extra help whilst you unwell, having treatments and side effects. maybe respite care if suitable, so you can have a break.
Contact Carers Uk http://www.carersuk.org/ for support too
Also consider seeing your GP to share how you feel, most will try to help.
You are not alone, there is help out there and here too for you, meanwhile keep sharing, offload, let others come alongside,
