  • Hi  and a very warm welcome to the online community which I hope you'll find is both an informative and supportive place to be.

    The online community is divided into different support forums so I'm going to recommend that you join the breast cancer forum which is a great place to connect with others who have had or are having the same surgery as you.

    To join, just click on the link I've created and, once you've joined, you can start a new post in the same way as you did here and join in with existing conversations by clicking on 'reply'.

    It would be great if you could put something about your diagnosis and proposed treatment into your profile as it really helps others when replying to you and also when looking for someone on a similar pathway. It also means that you don't have to keep repeating yourself. To do this click on your username and then select 'Profile'. You can amend it at any time and if you're not sure what to write you can take a look at mine by clicking on my username.

  • H Elka,

    Sorry to hear you’re going through this. I had a double mastectomy 3 weeks ago. Please feel free to reach out if I can help.x

  • Thank you so much I’m trying to ‘look normal’ this morning but feel like crying! Arranged on a good day to meet 2 for coffee but now don’t want to go as inside I’m going to pieces and it fills my head! And people seem not to understand all this rollercoaster of emotions I never knew I’d got!   How are you 3 weeks on? Have you had any problems with fluid or anything? I do hope it went well. I’ve been trying to find reviews online of my surgeon to no avail and that worries me the cancer nurse said all the ladies like him but, I said is he a good surgeon?! I keep worrying if I should have had implants and how my husband feels he says he just wants me well and doesn’t care about how my body looks.  Why is it you get one little worry and then it starts spiralling up!  Prepping on Monday hoping that answers some of my!  Are u managing the exercises? Let me know how your op went please and thank you for posting x
