Hi @Nic1 , I'm sorry to hear that it has been a hard and sad road for you. I've now started chemo. I have 4 rounds of the nasty chemo every 3 weeks and then 3 months of weekly chemo. Followed by 20 rounds of radiotherapy. I have to travel to Perth for Radiotherapy though so have to be away from my family. I hope you're able to find your peace in all of this. It truly is a hard experience, but one which you will get through and look back on one day. I have included my children in the majority of my diagnosis and treatment information so far. They are older; 16yrs and 12yrs but I feel they are able to cope with it better knowing what's going on with mum. Best of luck to you N!! Lorie xo

I too was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I've had surgery and see my oncologist on Friday. It's been 4 weeks since my surgery and the waiting has been hard. I'm not working at the moment either so I'm stuck at home. I've been trying to keep myself busy; cleaning the house, making lists of meals I'd like to cook in preparation for my chemo time, organising financial issues, etc. But, there's still those moments when the thoughts start to creep in and the worry sets in. Usually as I'm trying to get to sleep, or when I wake up numerous times during the night. I hope your wait gets easier and you get some news soon. Best of luck to you
