Breast Cancer so scared

I was diagnosed today. Scans booked for Monday and biopsy Tuesday. Surgeon wants to do chemo first as tumour large, to shrink, then surgery, then chemo. I have no idea what to expect,

I am terrified, lonely, sad all the feelings to be expected. My GP prescribed anxiety tablets today to help me sleep.

I found this online chat and thought I would say hi 👋. My mind races and it's lonely when my partner is asleep.

Thanks for listening to my story so far.

I'm in Melbourne 3201 and any support, chat would be welcome 🙏

Re: Breast Cancer so scared

I'm also scared  with my recent diagnosis but stay strong 💪 we will fight it together.  I am waiting to hear  when to see a plastic surgeon as mine is in the groin .  I personally feel not very comfortable emotionally as it is the the parts that make us feel like a woman. Like you and your cancer.  But let's make a deal try to find 1 thing to smile at every day.  Example a nice buttery crumpet for breakfast.  ☺

Hi there, nice to chat, thank you for your message, made me smile to have someone to talk to (there you go that's my one thing to smile about today).

Had my scans today, had a panic attack as I have never been in a hospital, nurses were amazing and we decided to pop a face washer on my eyes so I couldn't see the machines, worked thank goodness.

How has your day been 🌼 🌸

Re: Breast Cancer so scared

I was at skin specialist today and had 1 cancer removed... funny story when I got home and checked to see if it was bleeding through the dressing I found that she cut out the wrong thing. She removed an ingrown hair above the cancer spot. 😂  I have to think of the funny side of it.  She was really sorry and plastic surgeon will fix it when he does the others.  Good thing I'm to old for 👙  I'm 50 years young.  Keep smiling

My nan had breast  cancer  she recovered  minus her jugs.  But lived a full life another 25 years. Cancer free.   What ever your journey will be you will always have people to vent with. Good luck tomorrow .  Looking forward to hear from you with what made you ☺ at the end of tomorrow.
