I am scared ....
My name is Danka, I am 31 yrs old, mother of 2 cute kids. I have been diagnosed with invasive breast cancer 8/ 01/ 2015, grade 3, Her2+ , 19mm tumour and 2 of 3.5mm. I am not sure what stage I am in yet, but I have a swollen lymph note under my armpit. I had an appointment today and they had a blood test and a CT scan done, will have a bone scan done couple of days after my surgery on the 27/ 01/ 2015.
I am sooo scared now, does it mean I have cancer in my armpit as well??? or is it normal that they do all of that tests and scans for everyone who has breast cancer??? or because they are looking at a high stage of cancer thats why I need all of those tests to be done?????Pls help me out!!!!!
I know still a long long road ahead but not knowing my stage making me worried alot.....first step is my opperation next coming Tuesday!
At least I think I am a very lucky women to have a beautiful husband and lots of wonderful friends and family around me and doing their best to support me!
