As the title says, I’ve recently finished treatment for stage 1 breast cancer. Everything went as well as it could have done. Stage 1, cancer cells weren’t present in my lymph nodes etc. but now I’ve completed radio, I think it’s all hitting me now how serious this has all been. I think I’ve been in auto pilot since finding out and now I feel a bit ‘out in the cold‘ if that makes sense as treatment has been completed.
I’ll be seeing my consultant in the next 6-10 weeks to see how everything is going but I’m panicking the cancer may have spread and wasn’t picked up but mostly im terrified it’s growing somewhere else that I don’t know about. I have young children and the thought of cancer growing somewhere else just fills me with panic.
is this normal? Is there anything I can do to ease this?
