Hi everybody. Last week I was told I had a Hotmail breast cancer, her2 negative, with lymph involvement and internal mammary gland involvement. My scans showed a fluffiness that “may be wear and tear” however today I was told that this is metastatic spread. 
tomsay I’m devastated is an understatement - I’d convinced myself it couldn’t happen to me and I’m struggling with the thought of my husband being on his own as the stats show that the likelihood is a hound death (I’m 50 in august). I’m ok with the breast cancer but I’m really struggling to deal with the diagnosis of metastases. I’d be really grateful to know of any similar experiences, how you’re doing and how you got through it. Really grateful for your time in reading this message xx
