Yesterday marked 2 years since I was diagnosed with breast cancer and wow how my life changed in those 2 years. I so remember that fateful day when they told me those horrible words and the fear that I was suddenly consumed with.
The following 12 months was filled with surgeries, chemo, radiation and test, tests test. I felt my life was spiralling out of control and I just didn't know how to pull it back to its nice orderly way.
At 11pm on the 18th September 2014 my life changed forever!
High grade invasive ducatal cancer, no special type. Grade 3.
I found a lump which everyone kept reasurring me that it would probably be a cyst. I went to the Docotors the next day and he sent me to have an ultrasound of which I got in the same day.
im about to start chemo on the 4th december. have a wig a few scarves etc. does anyone have any other suggestions how to get through this in one piece.lol also any thoughts on mouth ulcers/thrush anything i can take to combat or stop this if i get it. something funny... a well meaning girlfriend said to me at a dinner the other night "god only gives what you can handle" i replied. "im on the wrong list then" also a slap. they are giving me round two on xmas eve. nice
thanks in advance lizzie

Just thought my P1nk66 blog post may be of assistance for those who wish to show people what they are looking for when doing a self examination.. I am always being asked if when I found my lump was it like a 'pea'. Short answer... no it was not..
It is also a little mammogram adventure for my turtles (Shelby thinks she is a bit of a star!!).. They certainly have a mind of their own and have taken to a little bit of movie making in the blog post
