Re: Hopeless and completely devastated

Dear Drida

 

I just wanted to show support and send you a big hug.

 

This forum is brilliant for getting advice and support. As others have said speak to your breast care nurse or even your GP as it helps to talk.

 

Once you know what you are dealing with, treatment will start. Be strong, you really can do this! 😁😁

 

Take care!

Re: Hopeless and completely devastated

Drida , sending a big hug, and acknowledging your pain. I had completed both my surgery and chemo when I was told that the blurred ct scan actually showed four mets in my lungs. Took the wind right out of my sails, I can tell you! My first feelings were very much as yours are. My first port of call was my Maggies Centre where I got some straight talking, clear explanations, and calm reassurance. You feel you are alone at this moment, but you are not. There are others out there with similar diagnosis. It’s a lot to ask of you, but you will do it for your children , you will get through this waiting period, and you will start your treatment, whatever it is. Medical history is being made with secondary and multiple bc now. We are living longer, and with an excellent quality of life in most cases. Have faith, both in yourself and your medical team. Your success is their success. Please keep in touch and let us know how you progress. Wishing you luck, determination and will power. X

Re: Hopeless and completely devastated

Drida, my heart goes out to you. But please continue to have faith! Faith in so many ways, in your medical experts, in your family and friends and in all the other support available (through this forum and via your BC Nurse). I totally understand how frightening it is; I too used the word "devastated" , but you, nor none of us are "hopeless".......we are all strong brave women. You are not alone Drida. With a big hug, Wonky.

Hopeless and completely devastated

I am complete speechless and hopeless. I have been diagnosed since August 2019 with DCI on the left breast and lymph nodes involved 5 out of 18. I underwent two lumpectomy and full axilar clearance and I was due to start chemotherapy on 05/12 and I just felt a lump on the right breast now. 
I walked in to the breast clinic and the doctor saw me and said: “ It is a lump”.

They sent me to ultrasound and the radiologist said It seems suspect. 
They did the biopsy and waiting for results plus my treatment had been suspended now.

Which chance do I have if is another cancer? Bilateral breast cancer.

I am 44 years old and I felt heartbroken that I would not see my children to grown.

I have no more faith,
