I had mammogram in November, I was called back a week later to be told I have a tumour,


Went in hospital to have it removed on the 13th November plus biopsy under arm. I went back 2 weeks later to be told another op. 19th December. For removal of lymph glands underarm. Also told will need chemo after and radiotherapy. Feeling tired and bewildered at the minute. All happened so quickly. My arm is very stiff and painful from the biopsy I had done. 

Told me they will use the same cut site to remove glands. How will I be after this. Told me I will have a drain in and hopefully only be in over night but drain could be in for a few days ?


. I am on warfarin long term. Due to a brain tumour I had 12 years ago and 2 DVTs. So will  have to go on the injections again. This really messed up my INR last time. So feeling little sorry for myself at the minute.
