Hi Janet..I found your email so inspiring..Thank you! I was diagnosed with both invasive and ductal cancer in right breast 2 weeks ago and had an MRI yesterday to ascertain whether I will only need one mascetomy. The initial biopsies were before Christmas so its been a lot of waiting! I just hope I won't have too much more 'hanging around' before the op. I have no idea at this stage whether I want or can have reconstruction at same time...I live with one of my 20 year old twin sons (his brother at Durham uni..miles from East London where we live) and I am worried about how I will cope post op...he isn't the most practical! And no family otherwise in London...mum is 93 next month and lives 80 miles away with her own health concerns. It was so good to hear your positive recovery..I want to believe I can return to work around 2 months max after op..I am being unrealistic?
