I am new to the site .. My Mum had ovarian cancer in 1978 and sadly we lost her 8 months later at the age of 49, I was 22. Ten years later at the young age of 32 I was diagnosed with rt sided BC. I was terrified but recovered well after partial mastectomy and radiotherapy. Ten years later to the day at the age of 42 I was diagnosed with lft sided BC, this time treated with chemo and radiotherapy and another partial mastectomy. I thought that was the end of my cancer journey but after being informed I was Brca gene positive I was annually checked. Last year at the age of 63 I was diagnosed with rt sided BC again so a decision for FULL Mastectomy was inevitable. I have just commenced another course of Chemo in January 2020 and just recovering from severe side effects of the Filgrastim injections, but I am a Warrior and will beat this again.. Ready for number 2 of 15 on 28th Jan ..
Looking forward to chatting to anyone who can offer any advice, tips or if I can help anyone please let me know
