This is scarry I have Breast Cancer

Thursday, October 09, 2014

How ironic Breast Cancer awareness month and I have just been told that I have Breast Cancer. I am feeling overwhelmed. Seeing a Breast specialist Monday, facing surgery and I have never had a surgery in my 69 years. Biopsy tests were painful, unfeeling staff at the Hospital so my family doctor is sending me to someone else. I am not even sure what questions to ask or exactly what to expect. I could really use some support from someone who has been there.

    Always get a second opinion, please! Lots of info on www.mercola.com. Also, lots of articles from holistic medicine on knowthecause.com. This site is run by a cancer researcher in cooperation with other specialists.

    Surely there is a team of breast cancer survivors on SP.
    I can sense your anxiety. Will be praying.

    I am so sorry about your diagnosis. You must be very scared. I have not been through this and so I can't give you any information at all, but I'm sure you could google the American Cancer Society and get tons of information. Be sure to write down questions you have to ask not only your doctor, but your surgeon too!

    Hang in there sister friend, I'll be praying for you!

    Best wishes to you! I have not had breast cancer myself, but I have several friends that are now living cancer free (after 10 and 15 years). Try to evaluate your treatment options. If you are not certain, get a second opinion. Focus on one step at a time.
    Hugs and best wishes to you during this difficult time,
    Alison

    So sorry. Check your senior center and see if there is a breast cancer support group.
    Best on this part of your journey. emoticon emoticon emoticon
