I joined the group a couple of weeks ago after my scan and biopsy and found it useful and supportive reading what everyone is going through and their advice whilst we all face the C word!
I've now received my diagnosis and plucked up the courage to say 'HI!' I'm still reading up on all the booklets i've received. A strange feeling really counting the days down to your appointment like a holiday without the excited feeling and now coming home with loads of booklets and not holiday brochures. i feel strange that i have a sense of relief but a strange relief as I do have cancer and not the all clear. Does anyone else have these mixed feelings?
I've been diagnosed with stage 2, grade 3 and triple negative. Well from my understanding, i'm waiting for the confirmations to all come in the post. I remember them saying 18 weeks chemo, 5cm tumour, lymph nodes, masectomy, radiotherapy....
I still feel very detached and like they are talking about someone else as i dont feel ill. I was hoping to be pregnant so feel very sad tonight that is unlikely to happen now with my diagnosis and that i'm 42.
So mixed feelings all around tonight.
