HI, im usually on the UC board, haven't been there in awhile because ive been in remission. I recognize Sherbear from the UC board.. Anyway, my wife was just diagnosed with bc today. She got the call to come into the doctor asap and he told her the news..There's no history of bc in her family. Breast feed our kids for like two years..she has an appt with the oncologist on Wednesday. Shes a school teacher, 1st grade..she has had like 4 or 5 other teachers at the school get it.. We have two little girls 8 and 12 and we have to tell them..this is really hard. I guess we just wait and see what the oncologist has to say on Wednesday.

So sorry to hear this. I really can't even imagine the thoughts going through both your minds. I'm hoping that it was caught very early for her. I have a friend who just last Fall finished a years worth of chemo. She is in remission and I pray she stays that way. Please let me know what the oncologist says. I will be praying for your family.

Oh I am sorry to hear this. My heart goes out to you and your wife and the kids too. She will get through it. It may not be easy but she will. Just support her and when people offer to help by cooking, cleaning, taking the kids whatever. Let them do it!!

My friend told me the biggest thing she had to tell herself while going through treatment is that it is ok to not be ok.

I'll be thinking of you and praying for you.

Update: wife is done with 6 rounds of Chemo and did pretty well through it believe it or not..The doctors were pleased. Her tumor shrunk alot, almost to where you cant feel it anymore. MRI came back good, but we go and see the surgeon this week. They think she is going to still have to have the mastectomy. Was hoping it was going to be a lumpectomy. Luckily it didn't spread to lympnodes, etc..know more soon. thanks

Sorry for the delayed reply, I'm away on vacation. I personally would want a mastectomy. But that is just me. Not spreading to the lymph nodes is great news!

I'm sorry you are suffering so much and are scared.
