When were you diagnosed?
What were your symptoms?
I had a collection of symptoms which I ignored and assumed would go away. Because I was pregnant/had baby/breast fed everything I was experiencing could have been caused by that. I had a lump, my breast was swollen and hot, my skin started to look a bit like the texture of orange peel, my armpit was bulging. It was only when my nipple started to invert and the pain was unbearable I went to my GP. Within a month I was diagnosed with Stage 3 Inflammatory Breast Cancer.
What treatments did you have?
6 rounds of Chemotherapy. 16 Radiotherapy sessions. Skin sparring mastectomy, lymph node removal.
