I'm so sorry to hear you are both going through this horrible worrying time. This time last year I was in a similar position to you both - well, in Ocober anyway. I had my biopsy 25th October and results on 1st November. Ductal Invasive, ER and PR positive. Had mastectomy and snb 12.12.2012. Tumour was 3cm and grade 3. Three nodes removed, one containing cancer. February this year I started chemo (last one on May 23rd) and now Anastrazole for at least five years.
Jan, you mentioned that you can't believe how calm you feel. That is what happens, when you know what you are dealing with and a treatment plan is in place, you will feel more in control and able to deal with it.
Britbox, I had to laugh when You talked about putting 'Clive' in box for a while. I now keep my left boob in a box all the time. My prosthesis, which I don't wear very often.
It might be too late, but please don't Google. What you find on there is not only scary, most of it is out of date or simply wrong. Stick to this site or the Macmillan site for advice or information.
This is a link to all the booklets on here concerning your diagnosis
Two of the booklets are all about diagnosis and possible treatment. When you find out what type of breast cancer you have, there are booklets under the same link for all the different types so whichever one you have will be on there for you to read.
Sending you both big hugs and best wishes.
