Hi Katie - so sorry to hear of your diagnosis, and that of your brother too.  But how wonderful you’ve had all your scans etc and will soon have treatment.  It’s amazing how quick they work, despite the  pandemic. I am truly grateful for our NHS at the moment as I’m also waiting for results of my breast cancer op and to start whatever they decide is best.  It was found on a routine mammogram.

Try to be positive and I truly hope you will beat this rotten illness.  

Take care xxx

Hello @Katie1958 and @Maryquitecontrary‍, thank you both for sharing with us. I know that waiting period for results or treatment decisions can be stressful.

For other members in our group, you did you find out that ou had cancer? Did you have any particular symptoms or was your cancer discovered during a routine check-up? How did you take the news?

hi 👋 I was diagnosed with stage 1 on the 7th July and had my op on the 24th August. Thankfully it had not spread to the lymph nodes, I committed to a trial to which I got the results on the 13th October and do not have to have radiotherapy 😀 I’m on a drug for the next 5 years. I am now in remission. I have had a very positive attitude from day 1 and im sure this helped me considerably I am now in remission. Stay strong and think positive you will be fine xx
