Re: Update

Hello Gracie68

Thanks for updating us on your situation.

It’s reassuring that the mammogram has detected the breast cancer when it is in the early stages and you have found your treatment team supportive. But as you and Eglis and other’s in a similar situation have said, it is a shock and can feel like an emotional rollercoaster.

You mention you are having surgery in June. You may find our information about surgery for breast cancer and what to expect after surgery helpful.

Re: Update

My experience is very similar to yours.

Rollercoaster is the right way of describing it.

wishing you all the best for your op.

Take care of yourself 




this is just an update on my previous post, after my recall to the breast clinic my mammogram had shown up a lump on my left breast, I had an ultrasound where my doctor told me it was cancer but he was happy it had been found early, I had a biopsy and a marker put in, 
I went back yesterday for my biopsy results and it was very positive my cancer is grade 2, I had a pre op check and I’m booked in for surgery on June 10th, it’s been a rollercoaster and such a shock not only for me but my family , our daughter gets married in august , but everything is positive and I’m lucky my mammogram picked this up and the amazing doctors xx
