I haven't been on here for some time - life sure is hectic!
I am very pleased to report that I concluded my treatment on 12th January this year which was such a relief for me! The radiation was nearly as bad as Chemo..... I was sooooo burnt!!! I am healing nicely and am looking forward to discussing my reconstruction options with my breast surgeon and plastic surgeon.
What a big day it has been!!! Exactly five months (to the day!) after receiving my diagnosis I completed my very last Chemotherapy treatment and please hope and pray this was the very last one.... forever. Although I am feeling really tired and lethargic tonight I am dancing inside knowing that I made it through this gruelling treatment. I had 6 sessions held at the Mount Hospital in Perth under Prof Arlene Chan - the best!
Thanks once again for your amazing love and support via this fantastic BCNA website :)
The waiting game is over as I received my pathology results yesterday. Not the outcome I was hoping but I need to try and remain positive.
Hi Everyone, It has been an extremely emotional week for both myself, my husband and my family. On Thursday 16th June 2011 I received the news from my GP that I have breast cancer (stage 2 - high grade). This news was completely unexpected and I went completely numb.... it honestly felt like a bad dream. A 2cm lump was found in my right breast with 3 other smaller cancers also found in the same breast (ranging from 0.6cm to 1.2cm in size). My surgeon (Dr Willsher at Mount Hospital in Perth) decided to perform a mastectomy on my right breast.
