34 years of and breast cancer diagnosis

Hi everyone, 

I am looking for people to share this journey with that can support me along the way. I am 34 years old and had a lumpectomy yesterday. I see the doctor again in 2 weeks time to discuss the radiation and further treatment. I have a four year old son and recently miscarried. 

Would love to connect to other young people dealing with this journey.

Hi Nik198,

I am sorry to hear this.

As you say, it's a journey. It's happened and we're all along for the ride.

What was the prognosis about the tissue that was removed?

I’m. It 100% sure just yet. It was only removed yesterday. I’m hoping to hear from the surgeon on Monday. I have a follow up appointment on 26/7. It’s only early days for me yet.

Hi,

We're all anxiously waiting!

But I'm sure you'll be OK. The not knowing and anticipation can be the hardest part.

Sorry, got results the other day - they got it all with the lump - invasive ductal carcinoma that is ER+ and Pr+

one of the senital nodes has micrometatastes so I need more surgery before chemo and radiation. I see the surgeon again on Friday so I hope to have more of a plan then. 

Thanks for checking in!

Feeling pretty good. I’m positive and trust the surgeon. I’ll hear from him again in the next day or two once the oncologist team have decided the way forward. I just want to get it all started so that it ends soon!!!
