I read on another thread that you are from Norfolk too. I am 40 and live in Norwich. I was diagnosed at end of January with invasive lobular breast cancer. I also had to wait for an MRI scan before they could give me a treatment plan and the waiting in the first weeks of all this is horrible! Lots of deep breaths required at times... Thankfully, the scan was clear so I had a lumpectomy last Thursday (made them fit it around a holiday for my 40th at end of Feb) and so relieved that the surgery is over so I can relax for a bit and now waiting for an appointment for the next stage. I will have chemo and then radiotherapy. I am only a little bit sore but keeping up with painkillers. Moving around is fine, can change beds sheets etc, but still lapping up the support of friends coming over to cook/clean for me!
Who is treating you at the NNUH? My surgeon is lovely.
Hope all was ok with the MRI scan, that has to be the worst thing I've had done to me in this whole process even though it was pain free - didn't realise it would take so long nor how claustrophobic I was until I was in it!
