    I can only imagine how frustrating this is for you :(

    Do you have a doset box? This might help you to remember and reassure yourself that you have taken your tablets :)

    It's not your fault, please try not to feel guilty. Your wife and children love you :)

    The doctor/consultant who dealt with removing a lump, do you still see this doctor/consultant?

    Don't apologise, we are here for you

    I really think you would benefit from seeking professional emotional support, understandably what you've been going through would create a great deal of anxiety. 

    I don't know what to say in reply to what they said...all I can say is that they should have not said that and I'm so sorry.

    I am sorry, I'm not a professional, all I can do for you is to be here for you, getting things off your chest, I wish I was a consultant who was able to help you.
