I am new to this forum, just diagnosed on 1/4/14 after USS and am going for biopsy results today. I too feel numb and feel just need to know results so can move on with treatment. I hate feeling the lump and just want it removed ASAP . Anyone else waiting for results ?
Sorry you have recieved your bad news.
although you will often discover what you are feeling is "normal" it is not normal for you or your family. The leaflets available do give good tips on how you can deal with some situations like telling others.
you will find this a great place to get info and let off steam.
I was diagnosed on 12th March a date forever burnt in my brain. I also felt numb and everyone else seemed to take it badly. Its shock, its take a while to sink in, still feels like its not real but I have found this site to be of such a great help and just wanted to tell you that you are not alone.
My pre op is tomorrow and lumpectomy on 15th. Initially I couldn't focus on anything I felt like I was in a fog. I don't know your situation but I had a couple of days off work and then went back which has helped a lot because I kind of feel normal for the hours I'm there. I have found the weekends the hardest. Keep in touch on this site. You can ask any questions without feeling silly and share how you are feeling and in my experience there is always somebody who will answer. Take care xx

I'm sorry to read of your diagnosis, the first few days and weeks are always difficult when coming to terms with things and getting to grips with your treatment plans, etc.
