Hi I'm new here too. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 after a regular breast screening. I was very fortunate. It was early stage cancer and I received such 1st class support and advice. Within weeks I had a mastectomy of my left breast and immediate reconstruction. I made a full recovery and continue to live a healthy life. I have worked for a well-known Cancer Charity for the past 5 years but am on furlough at the moment so thought I would use this extra time to get involved and share my journey and experience with other ladies. I'm sending much love and BIG hugs to everyone reading this and needing support. You are never alone.
I'm very happy to chat via private message on here if you prefer, sometimes it's easier to speak one to one. Click on my name and you will be given an option to send me a message, or I think you can click on the pink envelope at the top right hand side of the page. I'll send you a test message and you can just click reply to that. xx
Hi Evie! Thank you very much for the warm message you just just lifted my spirit. I will have my CT scan next week then after that i will know what kind of treatment i should have. It is indeed shocking and until now i still cant believe and accept it. But life goes and i know i have to be strong. I would love to hear more from you about what you’ve been through. Is it okay if we do exchange messages thru SMS? Thank you loads!
Hi joane83 - first of all a warm welcome to the forum and a big hug from me. I was diagnosed in December 2016 and I still remember what a shock it was, felt like I'd been hit by a very large truck. When is your appointment to talk about treatment? The waiting is probably the hardest part, somehow it is easier once you get a treatment plan in place and know that something is being done to get rid of it.
I'm happy to answer any questions, or like Amy has also offered, to listen if you just want to talk or offload. Very best wishes, Evie xx
Hi Amy. Yes it is really scary and until now it’s still not sinking in my head. I was really devastated when i heard it and felt like every piece of my body break into pieces. It is so hard especially i dont have my family here. Everytime i think of it my tears just cant stop from falling. Thank you for the message it means a lot.
Hi. Im in the same boat as you. I haven't been given a stage or type yet but i know its cancer. It is a really scary time, i can't believe its real. Im always here to talk to
Hello everyone. I am new here. And just like i said i was diagnosed recently with breast cancer. I just wanna communicate and talk with people. Until now im still upset and still cant accept what happened. I do feel scared and hopeless. Hope i can talk to someone here. Thank you!
