I found a lump in the breast approximately 3 months ago, I didn't think it was much, I had had one years ago and it all turned out ok. This time has been different. I just had my third operation on Tuesday and I am feeling really overwhelmed. I am hoping this time they find no further cancer and have the clearance needed and I don't get results until next Wednesday. I didn't realise when this started the cost it would have on my family or myself. It has been like a bad nightmare.
The sad thing is I know that it is not life threatening and can't imagine what others go through when they are going through the process.
Once all the operations are done then I move onto radiation. How do other people cope with this process?
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
