Hi, so my partner was just diagnosed on Tuesday with a breast cancer. She had had a lump for a few months and eventually went to the gp last Monday. The go said she was sending her for a hosp check where they would do scans etc and give her the results on the day! Went to the hospital on Tuesday where she was checked, had a mammogram and ultrasound followed by biopsy’s. We were then brought into a little room with a doctor and a nurse where they told us! Am completely in shock...we both are! She is booked in for 21st March to have the lump and lymph nodes removed and then they have said she will need radiotherapy. They did say however that they wouldn’t be 100% sure what they are dealing with until they have her “open”.
She is being really positive whilst I’m a complete blubber! I know I’m suppost to be strong and supportive but I’m finding it really hard which then makes me feel selfish!
How have other people who’s partners have been diagnosed handled it? Just looking for some advice really!
