The beginning of my BC Journey
So hard to believe how your whole world can be turned upside down in one Dr's consultation. Breast Cancer...me???? It still seems unbelievable. Over the past 12 days I have been through the barrage of Mamograms, biopsies, Research programme, MRI, CT scans, blood tests. The bone scan to go and then in 2 more days I will be sitting in the Surgeons office for the first time to finally be informed of what I am really facing. I have been through a roller coaster of emotions, sad, scared, disbelief but am so blessed to have so much wonderful family and friends that love and support me. I feel resigned that there is no point stressing...it is what it is. I will be incredibly relieved if the surgeon's reports it is only what I have already been advised:
6.5cm mass and 6mm lump in right breast only and lymph nodes all positive for cancer. I will love my life and treat myself with all the love and respect I deserve. Deep breath...for today I will just breathe.
