The biggest thing to remember is attitude is everything! Have yourself a good cry and get it over with. I've just spent the last 2 years of my life fighting Breast Cancer. You can do this standing on your head!
Get the book---Anticancer, a new way of life by Dr. Servan-Schreiber. He has done a lot of research on cancer and diet. He is also a cancer survivor. My personal endocrinologist has done a study on the information in the book and agrees with it completely. You can get it at Amazon, Books-a-Million, and most bigger bookstores. Here's a link on a pink ribbon website that talks about some of the diet info.
Get a doctor who is going to be as aggressive as they can be. Having the plumbing doesn't make you a woman. (Neither did having boobs!) If you think it's going to get you, it will. Surround yourself with people who are going to only bring light into your life. Find a support group if you need to, for family memebers if you have to, but you HAVE TO have a good attitude.
Know I am always here if you need somone to talk to
Love and light.
ETA-hysto will make you feel like you have been kicked by a mule for a week or two. Take time to let your muscles heal. My doc believe in taking ovaries too. If yours does you will go straight into the big M. Forget hormones, Effexor is great for hot flashes, some folks find relief in red clover.

We cannot tolerate a world in which one in three women is a victim of domestic violence. Speak Out so it stops
