Victoria's Story

Diagnosed in October, became single on diagnosis day, and started a year of hell! 

I had a Cryopreservation oomphectomy in November to preserve fertility hopefully before starting chemo. I was allergic to my first round of chemo and ended up having 7 rounds in total. I ended up in A&E or being admitted to hospital every round (plus some!) with various issues. I had 21 radiotherapy sessions over at Southampton and now onto a year of Herceptin hormone therapy, of which I've had to have a break from due to my heart suffering some damage. Now I'm going onto ten years minimum of hormone drugs!
