I felt a lump when I was about to get into the shower. It was hard and round and I had never felt anything like it before. I felt it again in the shower. I thought it might have gone by then. It was still there. I made a doctors appointment as soon as I got out. I messaged Matt to say something along the lines of ‘hey baby, don’t freak out buuuut... I found a lump. I’ve made a doctors appointment. I’m sure it’s nothing’.
Well... as we know, it wasn’t just ‘nothing’. I was diagnosed with stage 3 Invasive Ductal Carcinoma (IDC) triple negative breast cancer on the 25th of June - 1 day after returning to work after having Daisy. Since then it has been a whirlwind of appointments, tears, tests and needles. I don’t think that we’ve cried more in our lives until now.
I would like to share my health updates and wins on here for friends and family.
