Finally brave enough to write on here after reading many other ladies similar experiences and traumas of BC which has given me hope and reassurance i am not alone in this. Diagnosed a couple of weeks ago with Invasive Ductal Calcinoma grade 2. Oestrogen positive, HER2 negative. Nothing indicating at the moment that it has spread to the lymph nodes but I have been told this will be checked more in depth during surgery. Was in total shock and has been dealing with the roller coaster of emotions that have come with this, as know I am going to have to have chemo because of my age, then surgery, then rads. I had just got my head round everything until yesterday when i went back for an appointment expecting to be given dates for chemo and surgery, only to be told that they had found another lump on the same breast from the MRI i had last week! (didnt show on mamogram due to age and tissue type) This has set me back right to the start again as feel I have just been told all over again the worse news possible. They tried to reassure me that this doesnt change anything other than surgery, as only a masectomy is the option now. This i am fine with but feel like it is double worse beacuse there are 2 lumps and that it is spreading. Was content with being one of many like on this site going through this but now feel like I am becoming alone with uncommon issues :( Back in next week for results of the biopsy on second lump, although they already indicated its probably another cancerous tumour, and then to see oncology as will probably start chemo first a wk friday. I hate all the waiting around, its just frustrating. I have 2 very beautiful girls aged 3 and 6 and they are what keeps me going right now. I wil fight this for them as I lost me mum when i was 10 years old and dont want them to go throught the same experience as i did. Trying to stay strong but not sure i can take any more blows or unexpected news!
