Diagnosed with Stage 2 Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer recently. Underwent a therapeutic mammoplasty and axillary node clearance. Got the results of my surgery yesterday and was told that I needed more surgery (mastectomy) and chemo. The one thing that really frightened me was out of the 13 lymph nodes that were removed, 12 had cancer in them.
I am due for a whole body CT scan on Monday, but I'm feeling pretty terrified. I have no symptoms/aches or pains bodily wise (although I have a sore back today on and off but I don't know whether I'm being paranoid) and found a thickening in my right breast a few weeks ago which I got investigated which turned out to breast cancer so still in shock.
I have a lovely little family who I want to see grow up and feel very tearful and anxious, although hiding this in front of my children as I don't want to worry them. They know mummy has breast cancer, but not the rest which was told to me yesterday.
Can anyone advise/help me please?
