Hi, fairly new here, had TNBC PALB2 positive and as I have already had a liver transplant 10 years ago I have been told I have minimal options. I am pragmatic in front of my consultant but having just had grade 3 lump removed with chemo to follow, it looks like my best option is a bilateral mastectomy. This is a double whammy for me. My hair and my boobs 42HH! are a a huge part of my identity and I am really struggling mentally with this. Scared my partner won’t find me attractive and if I am strong enough to get through another medical journey.

  • Hi I was diagnosed with tnbc 2 years ago, I've had a double mastectomy, even though it's a big change iv got used it now and it realy doesn't bother me, I'm more concerned about being here so I see that as a small price to pay if I can keep my life, I totally understand how your feeling because nobody wants to be on this journey, I'm sure your partner is more worried about you being here
