Just saying hello
HI I am Anna, 58 and recently diagnosed with high grade bc. From when I felt the lump to surgery was 14 days. WLE and axillary clearance due to Sentinel node involvement but luckily no axilla nodes were affected. Got a slight shock at requiring chemo for six months and the second lot weekly for three months then radiotherapy then Herceptin for a year. However I have an exceptionally positive attitude (maybe a nurse who has seen a lot of tragedy helps there). Decided to grab the damn illness first and shaved all my hair off on Sunday. First dose of chemo is on Friday. I will just take one day at a time. Unfortunately I have no partner to share this with and live alone but Miss Minx (my feline) will help me and I have two very supportive daughters who live about an hour away. My prayers go out to all of us that are using this site because of bc or caring for someone with it. Whilst we have to go through a lot of this in our own way it is nice and I think very valuable to be able to share experiences and what worked to alleviate side effects etc. Sending you all my very best wishes and prayers...Anna
