I was in your position towards the end of October last year when I was diagnosed with grade 3 triple negative breast cancer which is one of the hardest types to treat, and a possible 3 year recurrence of it were to return.
When I found out I thought it was a death sentence but there is so much they can do nowadays to treat this disease.
I had never ending scans and tests and it was decided because of the size of my tumour to do chemotherapy first.
It wasn't a pleasant experience but it was doable, and I never gave up hope.
It was the thought of my 3 children 4, 5 and 12 that kept me going. The thought of leaving them motherless was unbearable for me to think of.
Anyway I had 6 rounds of chemotherapy and then a few weeks ago I had a bilateral lumpectomy and full axillary node clearance because I had 2 nodes affected and after my 3rd chemo when I had another MRI a tiny lump was found in my other breast which the mammogram didn't pick up.
Just try and live from day to day at the moment and be kind to yourself. Think positive and enjoy every day.
I had my follow up on Thursday and my biopsy results showed that I'm now cancer free with radiotherapy just to go in a few weeks possibly once my wounds have healed.
I suffer with severe anxiety and so the journey for me has been very hard and I just broke down on hearing the words cancer free.
You will beat this, every positive thought your way.
