Hi TL....sorry you had to join our club, but hey, we're a pretty cool group in spite of the disease! The others have given you great advice! My personal favorites were making lists of questions after reading in Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book....it armed me with information which I craved. I brought a tape recorder with me which was a huge asset...I could cry and ask questions, then listen to the answers later. Also, I suggest reading a little at a time...if you read more than pertains to your situation, you may add unneccessary worry and anxiety. Last, listen to these ladies...but do not assume that all of our experiences will be yours. No two experience feelings, side effects, etc the same way. We might warn you of possible bumps in the road, but only time will tell how you experience things.
And there are tons of positive stories out there, just ask us!
No question is dumb....ask us whatever you need to, even if it is only for prayers.
