Breast cancer treatment and recovery
Organized by: Amanda Simmons
As many of you already know I was diagnosed with breast cancer in my left breast a month ago, 2 weeks ago I went through a Iv contrast Mri to see if the cancer was anywhere else and they found a mass in my right breast that they have now confirmed is cancer. I had an appt last week with the cosmetic surgeon and this week I meet with my breast cancer surgeon for the second time to schedule a double mastectomy with reconstruction, my medical bills will be covered minus copays and medications but I have been told I will need to be off work for minimum of 2 months possibly longer depending on how quickly my body recovers which has caused me to stress, My job does not offer any sick time pay or medical leave with pay therefor I will be without pay for 2 months possibly longer, I normally wouldn't ask for help but I know now that I need to let my stubbornness go and allow my family, friends and so many who are praying for me to offer words of encouragement, suppprt and prayers... This has been stressful and an emotional time for me, my fiancée and my family...
