On Thursday we had Gemmas leaving meal at the Shalimar in West Bromwich. We started off in the Globe pub for a drink first. It was an enjoyable evening but we were very tired the next day. We will miss Gemma.
Good news. Had a letter from the surgeon Miss Hoar this morning saying she'd had a letter from the consultant geneticist Dr. Ong saying I should have yearly mammograms so she is arranging for me to have one in November two weeks before I see her. That's a relief I wont have to fight for it after all. So the Senior Reg. got it wrong.
Worked Monday and Tuesday, today off and working tomorrow and Friday. My first 4 day week for 8 months an doing two consecutive days has left me shattered today.
Need to have some energy for tomorrow as Gemma is leaving and we are going for a meal after work. Gemma will be greatly missed.
I am a breast cancer survivor and a very lucky person.I have also now found out I have a BRCA2 mutation-not so lucky after all but then perhaps I am!
After being a 2 year survivor I have now been diagnosed with metastic secondary breast cancer and I'm scared stiff.
