Hi there...I’m just curious if you were happy with your reconstruction? Does it match your good boob? And is there much scarring? Hope you didn’t need chemo 🤞 x
Hi, I was diagnosed with early stage breast cancer on the 8th of February. There were two lumps in my right breast so had to have a mastectomy. My operation with node clearance and reconstruction was on the 10th of March and now waiting to hear if I need chemo before my radiation starts. All happened so fast and some days I wish it is all a bad dream that I will wake from. Be strong, we can beat this! Xx
I'm sorry you find yourself here, but you will be in good company in the coming weeks, and get loads of advice, support and comfort from realising you aren't alone. I'm presuming the reconstruction is because of the location and or size of what needs removing ? It does feel surreal doesn't it, even now for me looking back (I was diagnosed March 2016) it doesn't feel like it was me. You sound like you have loads of people around you that are wanting the very best for you, which is fantastic, but you are right.....only really the people who have 'been there/done it' truly understand how you feel.
See you around the forum x
