I'm still new here, I posted a couple weeks ago about help to make a decision. I'm 47, newly married for the first time, and diagnosed with invasive ductal carcinoma a month ago. And I did make the decision to have a mastectomy. Results have since shown that it has not spread to my lymph nodes, so I think my stage is T1 N0 Mo. I think. The surgery was 9 days ago... and well... I'm just miserable. The feeling makes me nauseaus. I have electric jolt sensations where my breast used to be, ...i can't stand it. Is this normal or something I need to get used to? Please tell me it will go away. I haven't seen an oncologist yet, only the surgeon. I have an appt to see an ONC but it's still a couple of weeks away. From everything I've read I am thinking I'll be recommended for 'adjuvant' therapy... I think that means chemo... I'm not real sure. I had REALLY hoped to not need chemo, but my HER and hormone stuff was negative so I don't think I'm going to need hormone therapy. I just don't know anything for sure and I'm so impatient. I want to know what is going to happen to me, are these electric jolts going away, am I probably headed for chemo. I want it all to just GO AWAY, I want my life back already, I just got married for the first time in my life, he's my world, my soulmate, why does this have to happen to us.
