Dealing with emotional debris after

Started by Anonymous on 09 May 2017 at 06:43

Diagnosed with breast cancer January, lumpectomy and radiotherapy now told to go away and come back in 6 months for follow ups. Finding it very hard to get back any feelings of normality, everything seems different. Anyone got ant tips on how to put this experience behind you and start to move on and stop worrying about every little pain! Mamaingy

    Hi Mamaingy,

    It can feel and anxious and bewildering time...

    Thank you for raising this issue - it's something many people post treatment raise with us. So much so that Maggie's Centres run a course called 'Where Now'. This recognises the strange world post treatment, where confidence levels may have taken a dip - and fear of recurrence lingers.

    I realise that you need to hear practical advice and support from others who have been through what you're experiencing, so I'll leave the conversation open to other online members...but do message Robyn or myself anytime, to talk these normal feelings through...and feel less alone.

    Warm wishes

    Sue
