I was first diagnosed with breast cancer at 26 – a few months before turning 27, as if it could make any difference! , I had surgery ( a non-radical mastectomy, aka nipple sparing mastectomy, which is something I am grateful about almost everyday of my life ! ) and afterwards I started the hormonal therapy: a pill a day and an injection every 28 days, I felt tired at the beginning but then it slowly went away. So it has been a year and half of hot flashes, bone aching but also much more: I started a healthy relationship, moved in with my love, now we have a little family of three cats, I finally got my degree in languages at my university, opened a yoga studio, travelled a lot, made ton of plans and… and then the bastard came back ! I found it out about a month ago… these things go so fast, in a blink of an eye I was in hospital ( again ) for an axillary dissection and I am now waiting to heal completely in order to start 7 ( !!! ) months of chemo and then radiotherapy and afterwards again back to the hormonal therapy ….. what can I say? it’s a journey and I will take it one step at the time ! there are ( few ) positive things about having cancer at 28 but this is gonna be my second topic !
I apologize for my mistakes but english is not my first language !
