I've just joined the site and thought I'd say hello.
I've been diagnosed with breast cancer and today is my last day in work. On Tuesday I go into hospital to have a mastectomy, all my lymph nodes removed and a LD reconstruction.
I'm 28 and have no history of breast cancer in my family and so everything has come as a shock.
Starting to get nervous about going into hospital. I have my pre-op this afternoon so hopefully after that and after seeing the ward that I'll be on I'll feel a bit better.
Just wanted to wish you good luck and to say that lots of folks on here have been through what you are going through. Yes I think everyone is nervous at the start of treatment but once you get into the swing of things it will get better.
When you need us we will all be here for you and you will get lots of support and advice from the lovely ladies in the breast cancer group if you post there.
Big but gentle hugs,
