6 months pregnant and newly diagnosed
Newly diagnosed and 6 months pregnant with my 3rd son. Wow what a hectic 2 weeks iots been. Suspicous nipple sore, specialist, biopsy (YEEEOW), more biopsies, scans, diagonsis (stage 2, grade 3 ductile), masectomy - all between 17th dec and xmas! My head is still spinning.
I think I'm comfortable the oncologist and surgeon, who have been wonderful, know what they are doing (all happened so quick haven't had time to think about it) But I now have to change Obs, birthing hospitals, change from private to public, breastfeeding is not an option (I breastfed my other 2 sons) - and it all seems so scary and overwhelming.
I know we all are going through a shitty time, and I'm lucky to be having my third. But I am just so scared. I am also the type of person who has to know EVERY detail and plan, well ahead of time, and all the possible outcomes. I lost my mum last year at 57 to leukemia, and my inlaws live interstate.
Although I have great friends and an awesome community, fantastic hubby etc for support I still feel very alone.
Thanks for the vent, seems writing this down helps
