First of all welcome to the site that nobody wants to join but can make this journey so much more bearable. Yes friends can really back off. I don't know if it is fear or what? It is not like they can catch breast cancer from you.

I was diagnosed in Feb 2011 with stage 2 Triple Negative Breast cancer. Of course I did not know all those facts (the stage and type) until after the lump was removed and sent to pathology for analysis.

When I first got here it was the day after my first visit with the surgeon and he have me something from the American Cancer Society about this site and so I got busy learning. I tend to slightly disagree with the person who said don't do internet research. There are a few places to go that is safe the get information you may want. My advice is see the movies on the other half of this site on breast cancer. They are in the blue section under cancer information. Pretty much anything on this site is going to be reputable. Doing this will help you wrap your mind around what you can expect. I watched them several times until it sunk in.

Once you get the pathology report is when you have to decide if you want to do any further research. Since I found I had Triple Negative Breast cancer I also whent to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer cancer foundation website. They also are reputable and have a lot of research on that particular type of breast cancer. I do not know if other types of breast cancer have reputable sources of information as that which is found on the TNBCfoundation site. TNBC is an aggressive breast cancer but I needed to know the facts as I care for a disabled husband. Most do not care to get as much information as I did.

I agree with the previous commenter in the sense that you do not want to go out on the internet just anywhere to get information on breast cancer. If you do go out there be sure where you search the information is from a reputable source. So start here and decide later if you need to seek further.

I always wonder about you since I know we both had the same breast condition, edema. Are you doing better? Hugs

I am sorry you have to go through this too. But please know you're not alone and that you'll do great.

I was dx at 32 (last year), also with grade 3 (IDC), with lymph-vascular invasion (which creep me out for going online to read non-sense). I did lumpectomy, egg harvest, chemo, radiation and now taking tamox (on year 2).

It is normal to be very, very scared. I was too. And still am, but as time has gone by I've been feeling better emotionally and spiritually too. This is a process. You will accept it, do great with your treatments and see the light at the end of the tunnel. Plus there are many wonderful ladies here that can help answer any question you may have.

Are you doing chemo? what kind of surgery? Please keep us posted about your progress.

Sending you big hugs!

So sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I was diagnosed 6 months ago and it still seems like a dream, but I know it is real. This is a great site to get support and love and hugs. We all know what you are dealing with, and you are among many people who truly understand. Don't be afraid to vent or ask questions
