I have just had surgery after having breast cancer found during routine screening. Within the week I had an appointment with the breast clinic and an appointment for surgery within three weeks. Its devastating to hear that you have breast cancer but the team are my heros. Everyone from the nurses on the breast care ward who with such care and dignity carried out my biopsy and then on the day of my surgery inserted my guide wires through to my wonderful breast care team , surgery team and now my oncologist have all been marvellous. The NHS is often in the news for all the wrong reasons but I cannot fault the care I have been given by the doctor and her fantastic team. The fact that you have breast cancer is devastating news for anyone but my journey has been been made so much easier by the support and care I recieved whilst having my surgery at Burnley General Hospital and following that my continuing care from the breast care team and oncology. Many thanks to everyone who has been involved.
