After my diagnosis of breast cancer in April 2013, I bgan the breast cancer care pathway...which at the time seemed frightening and daunting. However, I shouldnt have worried. My care by the surgical team has been wonderful, a very caring doctor, who explained evryrthing in detail, as did the specialist cancer care nurse, who kept in constant touch with me, and always so very kind. After surgery, I was transferred to another doctor, who with the brilliant care of the Galton Day Unit, the nurses, are great and I have always looked forward to my visits guided me through my chemoptherapy, contacting me and giving me advice when I needed it. The doctor has always been kind, informative and has always given me time to make decisions about my care-never rushing me or any patient. I am now almost halfway through my last part or my treatment-( Herceptin), I would just like to say that all corespondance was copied to me, all questions and concerns always answered and I was always involved fully in all aspects of decision making this combined making a very traumatic diagnosis much easier to deal with, and the support i have received has been wonderful-I am fully recovered now and back to work, but thankyou so very much to you all for getting me this far
