Hi diagnosed today with triple negative breast cancer. Two small  lumps in different quadrants of the right breast. Opting to have mastectomy with reconstruction. Should I still go on holiday on Friday?

  • If you haven’t got surgery during your holiday, then I say yes, go. Do all the positive, lovely things you can before treatment starts. It will really help x 

  • Hi Clara53

    Welcome to the forum and sorry to hear that you have been diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer.  I would go on holiday as a week or two won't make any difference to your outcome.

    Wishing you the best of luck with your operation and with with whatever further treatment your medical team puts you on.

    Best wishes

  • I am sorry about your diagnosis, and would definitely encourage you to take holiday before you step on the treatment treadmill.
