I had a double mastectomy in April 2020. I was diagnosed July 2019. Right breast had cancer and traveled to my right lymph nodes. I was scared. I started out with 16 chemos, lost my hair down to my waist after the 1st chemo then I had my double mastectomy and while doing the biopsy on right lymph nodes I coded on table once they brought me back to life I had to have 33 radiation treatments I drove myself to all 33 treatments. I have no children. My parents passed over 15 years ago my husband passed in 2016. It was a long journey and yes I was scared too.
