Hello, what a great group this is. I’ve been reading posts since my her2 positive diagnosis and thought it was time to join in. I’m recently diagnosed and I will be having chemo every 3 weeks for six months, followed by radiation and then I’ve opted for a double mastectomy with reconstruction. I’m not cranky, just scared, sad and emotional. My Mum had breast cancer 12 years ago at 68 and was lucky enough to only need a lumpectomy and 6 weeks of radiation (still unfair for my Mum, and my Mum having this disease made me cranky), but she is still with us and is now 81. I’m day 10 after my first chemo round and had a head shave on day 5, I’m unable to control what is happening to my body but I can control my hair loss. My thoughts on why I have been given this dreadful disease is that I’m a strong fighting woman with a great husband, family and support network and I will beat it and hopefully it’s saved another woman that’s not as strong as me from going through it. Have a great day 😊
