AK88 Thank you for sharing your surgery. My sister died of BC in June this year, she was 56 and had both an oestrogen and triple negative tumour which metastasis. We discovered she had the BRCA2 gene in May. I was referred for testing by my GP. Like others my parents had to be tested before they would test me. My father came back as positive (his mother died of ovarian cancer) and so I was tested in September and got my results in October. I'm also BRCA2 positive. My brother aged 46 had early PSA testing and was diagnosed with prostate cancer in October. I'm currently going through referral process for ovarian removal and plan to have bilateral mastectomy once I've been through counselling. I hope you continue to recover well.
