Hi everyone, hope your all well. Thank you for your thoughts and kind words. My Chemo start date will be either 15th Oct or 19th Oct. I Had an appointment with the Oncologist which went really well. She was precise, kept wording simple and also had two Cancers Nurses present who were all very helpful. Although the Oncologists was reassuring about the Chemo there is no guarantee that if they give me Chemo up front for few months if that it will work enough for me to have lumpectomy. I am more going towards my thoughts of Mastectomy with immediate reconstruction on offer. As it's my left breast affected psychological it won't bother me to loose my left breast all together and have reconstruction. I have an appointment tomorrow at the Breast Clinic to discuss my decision and find out more about my surgery.

Also I am now at the point whereby I have to decide what kind of surgery I will need to have. I have two options lumpectomy (breast conserving surgery) and mastectomy with reconstruction. I am still deciding what surgery to have. I would like to know your own experience with lumpectomy or mastectomy. I have an appointment today with Oncologist. They will give me Chemo.
