I was diagnosed with breast cancer two weeks ago and am due to have my first surgery next week to remove the right breast and commence reconstruction using an expander. I feel a bit isolated as I don't know anyone else who is in a similar position to me so I thought this might be a good place to connect. I have 2 young children (2 & 7) and to be honest that is the very hardest thing about all this. I am told that I seem very calm and that I'm strong and I know these two things to be true but someone I struggle to hold it together.
How are you guys feeling?
