Possible Recurrence - Can I do it alone... again?
Stage 1 triple negative in 2012. Treated with surgery, chemo and radiation. I really thought I was out of the woods. I had absolutely no concerns until I found a couple of hard lymph nodes just above the same breast a couple of days ago. I sent an email to my old oncologist to see if it was anything I should be concerned about. I had lymphoma before bc, but that was over 25 years ago. She's more concerned about a breast cancer recurrence and scheduled a diagnostic mammo, ultrasound and needle biopsy for Tuesday. Now I'm terrified. I know nothing yet and I'm getting ahead of myself, but I can't stop my brain. Any advice on how to stop the obsession is appreciated!
I am single. I live alone. I have no one to reach out to for support. I have family, but we are not close. I've been through two cancers already. I just don't know that I have it in me to go through all of the testing and treatments by myself again. I found these discussion boards to be helpful the last time around. Is there anyone else on this journey alone?
