Hopefully you have had your surgery and no where you are at in regards to any further treatment.
It is a turbulent, scary time but there is hope for the future. I am heading up to 11years post diagnosis. BC was my 50th birthday present. Please let us know how you are.
Thank you so very much for your reply. It's lovely to hear from people who understand. It's such a wave right now. I go from being positive and okay to consumed with fear and emotions.
Hopefully they have caught it early. My specialist seems to think so. Just need the surgery date so I can prepare for the next hurdle to get through.
Thank you again. It means a great deal to me to know there are people everywhere who are there to offer their thoughts and support xx
Thank you so much for your reply.
In answer to your questions. I am 39 turning 40 next week and live in a regional city so there is no travel involved for me thankfully.
My hope is that it is contained and it will all be over soon. The unknown and waiting is such an awful feeling. You really just wouldn't wish those feelings on anyone. I am waiting for a surgery date at the moment. I am already under the care of a breast specialist. As scary as it is I understand grade 1 is very treatable.
Thank you again for your advice and kind thoughts. It's nice to be able to talk to people who understand this shitful (mind the swearing) time. xx
We've been where you are right now and know the feelings that come with diagnosis. It is a roller coaster for a while but it gets better. Caught early BC is very treatable and hopefully cureable. Hang in there.
I found the public system very good.

I was this morning diagnosed with low grade invasive ductal carcinoma. I'm scared out of my mind right now. And I dont really know what to think. Of course I only have basic hospital cover and it doesn't cover cancer surgery. So I need to wait for the public system to get me in.
I understand there are so many worse off than me right now but the uncertainty is utterly frightening.
I have alot of support and love around me but no one is in my shoes and there isn't anything they can say or do that makes me feel any better. I just wanted to reach out to people who are walking my mile
