I went to Grimsby hospital breast clinic on the 23rd January just for a check up; how little did I know it would change my life!! At am I was told after my mammogram I had calcification on my left breast and this was cancer! After seeing the consultant for the second time I was informed I would have to go back next Wednesday for the results and options but when asked about what he recommended it was a full mastectomy. The most scary part is although the nurses were there to offer comfort at no time did anyone tell me where I could go to get help? Am i wrong here? I just go home and what carry on as if nothing as happened and thing well it is just like having a cold it will go away soon?
