IVF Breast Cancer

Dear Babs,
After four years, treatments every second month, of not conceiving using ivf we finally decided to have an egg donor. First attempt was successful and we now have a gorgeous five year old daughter. I however have a delayed diagnosis of stage 2 breast cancer. The diagnoses went undetected by doctors for four years. The lobular cancer was undetected by ultrasound and mammogram. Doctors reported firm breast tissue. 10 centimetres of firm breast tissue! Now after a lumpectomy, mastectomy, axially clearance,16 weeks of chemotherapy and six weeks of radiotherapy I now look forward to a life long of HRT or having my ovaries removed? Not sure who to trust or which doctors to believe, where do I go from here?
