Well Monday, I go for my bi-lateral Mascetomy.  Hoping I don't have to stay in the hospital too long.  After all the tests, biopsies I am relieved that there is light at the end of the tunnel.  It was almost a no brainer.  After all these years of burying my head in the sand about breast cancer and thinking not me, I am now so shocked at how many women and men who have or had this disease.  I can't believe it.  I was trying to keep it under wraps from my friends, neighbors, co-workers etc.  Now I want to shout it to the roof tops, GET THOSE MAMMOGRAMS!!!!.  Once I get through this I will make sure I do what ever I can to help anyone else who needs to know or needs support.  Again thanks for your support, this forum has been very helpful and supportive.  I hope to do the same in kind.  God Bless you all.

Good luck on Monday.  You will be just fine.  In a way, the surgery IS a relief, because you know for the most part, the cancer is gone.  Then you just deal with the rest.  I agree with you that this disease changed a persons perspective on everything, but particularly anything related to women's health. 
Remember, take it easy and pamper yourself until you feel better!  REST, REST, REST!!!
