Newly diagnosed with mets

Hi everyone, yesterday I got the bad news that my early breast cancer diagnosis of 4 years ago has spread, I was devastated, I have changes in my pelvis and lower spine and a growth push against my kidney tube hence that kidney not working correctly and a stent is going to be inserted and a biopsie of the growth to see if it’s still the same cancer I was diagnosed with originally then we know exactly what we dealing with, I will say I’m frightened, worried, scared as hell, panicked, nervous, and all the other emotions that come along with that diagnosis, I walked out of the oncologists office and hopefully not in the hearing of the other patients there dropped the F bomb  a dozen times, what the future holds for me now I don’t know what I do know is I will be fighting this all the way.
