Hi, I'm newly diagnosed and am booked for a lumpectomy early next week. The good news is it has been found early and at this stage I will only need the lumpectomy and radiotherapy. Apparently a second op may be needed after pathology but hopefully this won't be the case. So it's looking at the easier end of treatment at this point. My concern is that I am on my own in this. Some good friends will help where they can of course, especially driving me to the op and more than that if needed but of course they will still have work etc of their own to cope with so overall I will be alone and combined with arthritis and walking difficulties I'm pretty nervous about how I will cope. I sure hope I will manage to drive myself to the radiotherapy sessions, I've been told many people do this so maybe I'm worrying ahead of time but I'd love to hear how those of you who are alone in this manage and stay motivated. Thanks and hugs everyone. Snowie.
