Hi everyone, this is my first post. I was diagnosed on 11/1/11 (memorable date!) and will be having a mastectomy and axillary clearance on 02 March. I am still trying to absorb what's happening, but the thing that's bugging me is it seems a long time to wait for surgery. Has anyone else had a long wait between diagnosis and mastectomy?
I've started to feel unwell (headaches and sore neck, like a glandular ache) but I don't know if it's cos I'm stressing out or if it's the cancer. (I guess it could be both!)
Any advice appreciated -- I've been browsing thru archived posts and can't believe how knowledgable and helpful everyone is.
