  • Hello Chantzy1

    Welcome to the Secondary breast cancer group. I am very sorry to hear that you have had a diagnosis of secondary breast cancer after already going through treatment back in 2020. 

    I had a different type of cancer to you so I hope you do not mind me responding but I noticed that you had not yet had a reply. Hopefully by me doing so it will bump your post and someone with similar experiences will see it and respond. 

    I am sorry that in the end you needed to go to A+E to be able to have the necessary tests done. I hope that you are not too uncomfortable after having the stent fitted and that it helps. I hope that you will find out about the chemo soon and can have a treatment plan put in place. 

    In the meantime if there is anything you need then please do ask. If you feel talking things through with someone would help, then please do give the Support Line a call. The details are at the bottom of this and they are lovely on there.
