I was 29 years old no family history and a mum of 3 nearly four children. If I had known what I knew now I would have perhaps questioned further and asked for more tests.
Fast forward three years and that same lump was extremely painful and I was always tired and had lost a fair amount of weight, I went too my gp who could feel two lumps, she sent me next door for a ultrasound where the sonograper was counting up-to 10 lumps on the right side and several in the left.
I was referred too a breast surgeon that week and was told the next two years of my life would involve double mastectomies, chemo, radiation, reconstruction, menopause, anxiety, post traumatic stress among other things. The pain, anger, adrenaline and the fight for my life began.
