Hi, I just thought I would share my story in hope it will give others a little hope and to appreciate their life.
I am 50 years old. In July 2011 my GP found a large lump on my left ovary. While the NHS dragged out the endless tests my body got fed up of waiting! I didn’t even have a date for surgery when, in the early hours of September 20th I woke up in severe pain…
I had a hysterectomy but fallopian tubes left in May 2013 because of 20 years of being anaemic due to heavy periods pain in my groin left me breathless and doubled over in pain, it was the final straw for me as nothing word work to stop my heavy periods.
Hi I’m Tricia – mine’s a flavoured earl grey or vodka /lemonade depending on the time of day! 4 years ago aged 57 I had surgery for breast cancer. Up until the surgery I was having regular monthly periods then BAM! straight into menopause and I wondered what had hit me.
There are at least 15 different types of breast cancer that are known, which one is present is dependent on a number of factors including where the cancer is located. All of them have different rates of growth and a variety of tendancies to spread to other areas of the body (metastasize).
