One step at a time, one day at a time. There's been some good advice offered here, so I'll not repeat it, but we're always here... I am a 9 1/2 yr. survivor. Hugs....

I am so sorry to hear of your diagnosis. I am sure your reeling from the news. It's almost exactly 2 years ago I was diagnosed. It's is beyond overwhelming, my advice to you is truly take things one day at a time, one step at a time. You can get through what is before you!
Face this challenge with determination! I wish you the best~ emoticon

I can't tell you not to worry - because you will anyway. It seems overwhelming. I suggest either taking a little notepad and writing down EVERYTHING - or taking someone with you who will do that for you.
Every time you think of a question, make a note of it - there will be so many that you will forget.

You are already doing the right thing - taking one step at a time.

Remember that we have been through this too - and come out the other side. I am a five-year survivor -- surgery, chemo, radiation, more chemo, possibly more chemo in a research test (It was double-blind, so no one knows if they got the drug or a placebo.) But my cancer was aggressive, advanced, and spread to at least one lymph node. Every situation is different, so you may have different treatments. A friend of mine had chemo before surgery...

I continued working through all this - though I did miss many days. The hardest part for me was that I just was so exhausted. But again, I got through it - one step at a time.

If you have any more questions, (and I know you will) we are here.

hugs and prayers,
C

Hi everyone...this may be premature because I haven't met with the surgeon yet, but I was just diagnosed with breast cancer this morning. I have an appointment later tonight with the surgeon to discuss further testing and surgery, but until then I'm sitting on my couch with my thoughts. So, I needed to do something...and here I am. :(
