"Breast cancer treatment"

About: Cumberland Infirmary

I was told i had breast cancer i was terrified not knowing anything about it . I was told from the start what was going to happen my consultant and the staff have been fantastic cant praise them enough . Its only been a couple of weeks since i had a mastectomy and all my lymph nodes removed then i got a call from my breast nurse who as been fantastic too and we sat down and we went through all the results together

Now im on to the next step which is going to be whith the oncologist but so far i have been very plesed with my care . My stay on the aspen ward was a good experience too the staff very very good .

Dear Christine

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Trust and for the opportunity to share with the teams who have been looking after you.

It must have been a shock diagnosis for you but I am pleased to hear that you received such reassuring care.

I wish you all the best for the next stage of your recovery.

Best regards,
