Lost and struggling
2012 I was diagnosed with DCIS had 3 lumpectomies and Radiation and all seemed good. On my 5 year check I was again diagnosed with DCIS. Now I am 5 years post double mastectomy and recon, and be signed off by all my specialists. Which is a good thing, I know. BUT, a year after my surgery I had to see a specialist for an unrelated matter, this specialist told me there was nothing wrong with me, and “ it wasn’t like you had a real cancer” this surprised me and I feel like all the trauma my family and I went through waiting for results, being told I had cancer, the lumpectomies and then major surgery, and recovery was for nothing. I don’t understand how a medical specialist could say such a thing. I have been told by friends to ignore it but it has been years now and I can’t. Has anyone had this happen to them?
