I’m 33 and was diagnosed with stage 1b2 on 12th November 2017. I underwent 25 radio, 4 cycles of chemo and 4 brachytherapy.
I’ve generally coped with everything really well, and was thrilled when I got the all clear in June. I’m quite lethargic and have lower back pain at times, but that’s been my only side effect.
For the last few weeks I’ve felt really sensitive towards comments, in friendships and massively self conscious. Ive pretty much cried every day after getting in from work, and can’t explain why.
When it comes to menopausal symptoms, I suffer from flushes, which are probably only 5-6 times a day and pass within seconds. Do you think my emotions are down to the menopause, or do you think I’m just slowly starting to realise what I’ve been through?
I’m really not keen on starting HRT yet at my age, but have been told by colleagues (who have started HRT due to age) that it gives them a new lease of life.
Thanks for any help,
