Gill Annan, UK

Here I am stuck at home isolating for two weeks. Time to contemplate. Breast cancer, or any cancer catches you by surprise and makes you re-evaluate your life. You are surprised at your friends and acquaintances. Some are wonderful and others not so. At the time I was so glad I was older and only had myself to look after. How would I have coped as many have to, with a young family?

What do I regret now, seven years later?  I regret trying so hard to get back to normal as quickly as possible, maybe that caused my lymphedema. Perhaps not going back and having a double mastectomy instead of being lop sided.   But too late for that – get on and live life.
