Diary Of A Breast Cancer Patient #1:
I arrived at the hospital at 7:30am. It had already been 12 hours since I had something to eat but I was down for a morning surgery so hopefully I wouldn’t have too long to wait. I was shown to my bed and Darren and I began to make ourselves at home. I was on a ward with 3 other ladies all there with breast cancer. I again was the youngest, with the other ladies being in their 50s-70s.
Within minutes of us being there nurses, doctors and anaesthetists began doing the rounds, taking blood pressures and going over the same questions again and again. By 8:30am the first lady was being taken down to theatre. Then the second lady was being taken down by 9:00am. This is good I thought, I’ll be down and home before I know it. The second lady was back by 10:30am and sat up in bed and eating. She looked pretty amazing considering she had just had surgery. This was all making me feel better.
Round about this time I was called by the nurse along with another lady from a different room to go down to the x-ray department. It was time for me to have my radioactive injection before my x-ray to detect my lymph nodes.
