My gynecologist was very supportive
I felt like a lot of other women: I was at a complete loss. I just did everything that the doctor suggested. I didn't have a clue about anything and had never looked into the subject. I was fortunate to have such a good gynecologist. He was very caring and always found time to talk with me at length. But in the end I had to have my breast removed.
My husband and family were really supportive during that time. My husband said straight away that it didn't bother him and that I shouldn't worry.
But the year after my diagnosis was very hard for us, because we were going through some difficulties with our business too and that really took its toll. We had to file for bankruptcy. We were worried sick. We thought that we'd never make it. I had no time to think about myself and my illness.
