I know how you feel - I had breast cancer last year, had surgery and chemo. Then had my BM with reconstruction in January of this year and my BSO two days ago - still recovering. It's a lot to deal with but it does get better. I've known about my BRCA status since June 2011. Have you found FORCE yet? They are a great source of info and support. If you want to email me, feel free. Take care of yourself and hang in there!

Diagnosed in August - BRCA2.
Diagnosed with DCIS. Had a mastectomy four weeks ago, so I'm still dealing with recovery and more surgery on the way.
Having a hard time dealing with the consequences of this. It's hard to get it off my mind.

Hello to my fellow cancer fighters!
I was wondering if anybody else has the cancer gene and is dealing with all that being BRAC1 or 2 positive entails?
Thanks,
Jen emoticon
