Hi daenerys30, I'm sorry you're experiencing this all over again. So much of cancer is just sheer bad luck. And you made the best decisions you could with how you were feeling and based on your circumstances then. Let the past be and just take it one step at a time. When you see your onc on Thursday you will know more and things will get better.
There are other ladies here who had recurrence post mastectomy. The risk is low but it is not zero. Sorry you find yourself in that small group.
Can you try to line up a counsellor or someone to talk to? Telehealth is easy... talking this through with someone might be helpful. Perhaps your cancer center has some resources?
