Hi ladies, My first posr and I am sobbing as I write. Just having a really bad day. Diagnosed DCIS Jan this year, quick lumpectomy, but the histology was unexpected, HER2 invasive, aggressive something or other, second op removed more tissue and lymph nodes. Second results more positive and now awaiting radiotherap. Essentially this puts me in a positive place I know, but today I am having a meltdown and feel a little I don't know, like a fraud. Everyone around me is so positive like I have just been to the dentist! I have been petrified and terrified, and now it seems, "oh, that was a storm in a teacup", "you're OK", "three weeks of radiotherapy and it's all over". Am I acting like a spoilt child? You ladies will understand how traumatic this has been I can't just switch off my emotions and act like it is already ancient history. Feeling so exhausted.
