So I have not written for a while now and after my last post, I had my operation to remove a tumour from my breast.
I found a lump in my right breast in January last year and was on a bit of a roller coaster ride until around the end of April when finally had it removed. Luckily it was not cancerous but they thought would be best to remove it.
I had numerous biopsies first however and the excruciating waiting time in between those biopsies. The not knowing one way or another for weeks on end was incredibly frightening not just for me but also for my family. The sleepless nights, the thinking about your family all the time and trying not to think the worst but cannot help it. Anything and EVERYTHING makes you emotional. Good days and very bad days… the days where you just burst out crying for no reason.
This ‘in limbo’ stage is quite hard to deal with and there seems to be that not a lot of people really talk about this stage and also having still had a lumpectomy although was benign, could not see much on it.
However, all that is behind us now. Another fear though that will stay with me although I don’t want to think about it. I am a bit paranoid about every little thing you feel around the breasts. Onset of menopause isn’t helping…now that’s another story!!! HAHA. It just makes you appreciate every single day even more though and all you have and all that is around you.
That was all to add to part 2 as I know it could have been worse and others do have it worse. Everything life has to throw at us makes us stronger. Just was a quick one as I had not written a Part 2 for so long…
