    Hi Cranburymom,

    I went through a similar situation as you (or at least I think I did!). I was diagnosed at 40 with stage IIA Invasive Lobular BC. I was ER/PR positive as well and HER2 Negative. I am so sorry you are going through this but I can tell you from experience (I am about a year out of treatment now) that you can get through it. The entire ordeal really wasn't as bad as I had imagined it to be. Try to take one step at a time and you will be okay in the end. Trying to wrap your brain around the whole picture right now is probably just too hard.

    Do you know if you are having a lumpectomy or mastectomy(ies)? The waiting and buildup to the surgery for me was pretty much the worst part for me. There is so much uncertainty and fear.

    I can give you some pointers for post surgery (if you are having mastectomies like I did) when you are ready. Since you appear in your photo to be in really good shape, I can tell you that the surgery will not keep you down for long. Two days after my surgery I went for a one mile walk.

    Anyway, if you have any questions or just feel the need to vent, I am around.

    Take Care,
