Here's the link to BCC's publication Breast Cancer and your child's school
I'm so sorry to hear of your recurrance so soon after all your treatment. I was diagnosed with a recurrence in my right breast in August. I had already 2 primary Breast Cancers. In right breast 2002 and left breast 2007. Both time I had chemo, 30 sessions of radio and lumpectomy and complete node clearance. This time I had double Mastectomy and am on chemo at the moment. Mine is Triple Negative and grad 3 again. I wish you good luck in your treatment and keep your chin up. I know it's hard to go through it all again, but one step at a time. Best Wishes B xxx
I had a recurrence/new primary (not really sure which), 2 years after first diagnosis. I had triple negative so I had chemo again. It was a very difficult time for me so I just wanted to let you know I am thinking of you. It is a very anxious and scarey time- I found that while I knew what to expect, there was as much to be scared of too! But, a year on I have been through it all again and am picking up the threads of my life.
There is a lady on my chemo thread - kitten mad. She had a local recurrence and I am pretty sure she was on tamoxifen. You could pm her.
As you know, you will feel better when you have the scan results and you know what comes next. I would really encourage you to use all available support. I did and it really did make a difference.
Let me know if I can be of more help.
Good luck, Rattles x
