Stage 1 Breast Cancer

I’m newly diagnosed stage 1 breast cancer. It’s been 3 weeks since surgery and I start radiation shortly. My prognosis is really positive and I know I will get through this but I have a horrible fear already of it returning.  Is there any advice on how to deal with this? I’m worried that every ache or pain or tiredness will send me spiraling into hypochondria.

Re: Stage 1 Breast Cancer

I think we will just have to live with the thought of our cancer returning.  I see the surgeon Monday so I will probably know what my treatment will consist of.  Right now all I know is I have stage one NSSLC.
