Mother reveals how she was diagnosed with breast cancer three months after giving birth

Published

on

A mother has revealed how she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer just 12 weeks after giving birth to her daughter – and the treatment meant she couldn’t hold her. 

Vicki Keating, 29, from Kings Heath, Birmingham, revealed how she was devastated to get the diagnosis in November 2018, becoming angry, then breaking down in tears at the thought of her daughter possibly losing her mother. 

She first realised something wasn’t quite right when she found a hard lump in her breast whilst lying in bed. After a biopsy, mammogram and ultrasound she went in for what she thought was a routine check up – but she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

She had to have an aggressive form of chemotherapy, plus 15 rounds of radiotherapy. Then she made the decision to have a double mastectomy – and for three weeks she couldn’t hold her daughter – in case she ruptured her scars.

Vicki speaks about how she initially found the lump: ‘I’d given birth to Rey just 12 weeks earlier, and I was facing the usual challenges that every mum with a new-born faces, like late nights, lack of sleep and heightened emotions. 

‘I first realised something wasn’t quite right when I found a hard lump in my breast whilst lying in bed. I didn’t breastfeed Rey and it was only when I was no longer producing milk that I could feel the lump.  

‘Initially, I didn’t think anything of it because I was young, have no family history of the disease, and like many other women have lumpy breasts anyway.

‘My GP performed a physical examination and couldn’t feel the lump and suggested that it could be a blocked milk duct, but I was referred to the breast clinic for further tests.

Vicki started chemotherapy on 21st December, however at the last minute she was that she would need a more aggressive form of chemotherapy

‘At the breast clinic, I underwent a biopsy, mammogram and ultrasound in the November’.

Vicki, who also has an eight-year-old son Grayson, reveals that a few weeks after having the tests a letter come through the post calling her into the clinic and she went alone thinking it was a routine appointment. 

‘When I got there, I was asked if I had anyone with me to which I replied “no”.’ She knew something was wrong when they suggested that she should call someone to come into the consultants room with her.

Her partner Gavin, 27, and a three-month-old Rey joined her to hear her diagnosis.

‘Hearing the words, “it’s breast cancer” sent my world into a spin and I saw red. I didn’t cry at first, I just felt really angry – “how could this happen to me? I’ve just had a baby”. 

‘I remember looking at Rey who was sat on Gavin’s lap and thinking that I’m going to die and not see her grow up. I was so angry that I stormed out of the consultation room and left a calm and collected Gavin to arrange my appointments. It wasn’t until the news sunk in that just I broke down in tears.’  

She started chemotherapy a month later,on 21st December, however at the last minute she was that  she would need a more aggressive form of chemotherapy.

‘I had triple negative breast cancer, and the treatment I was supposed to have, wouldn’t have been as effective.

‘I still had chemotherapy that day, but I had to have a combination of Carboplantin and Docetaxel through a PICC line to shrink the tumour in my breast ahead of my surgery four weeks later.

‘Although my right breast was affected by breast cancer, I made the decision to undergo a double mastectomy with expanders, rather than a lumpectomy. This was a personal decision for my own peace of mind.

‘Psychologically I couldn’t have it there; I was scared that it would come back or spread to my other breast. I still feel quite anxious, even though I no longer have breast tissue.

‘I also endured 15 rounds of radiotherapy to the chest wall. I think this was the easiest part of my treatment but the side effects are uncomfortable to deal with. 

‘The radiotherapy made the expanders in my breasts quite hard and uncomfortable, so I’m due an exchange surgery in February 2020 to have them replaced by silicone implants to make them a bit squashier.  

She said that due to double mastectomy she couldn’t pick up her daughter: ‘It was heart breaking not being able to pick Rey up for 3 weeks, as I could have ruptured my scars. She would raise her arms and try to get me to pick her up but I physically couldn’t. 

‘I felt so bad as I couldn’t soothe her in the middle of the night and just made me feel inadequate. She needed her mummy and the only way I could hold her was to have Gavin or my mum put her on me with a pillow across my chest as a cushion between us.

‘While Vicki’s treatment is still ongoing: ‘After my chemotherapy and surgery, I didn’t get a complete response and a scan showed that there were still some residual cancer cells in my breast. 

WHAT IS TRIPLE NEGATIVE BREAST CANCER? 

A type of cancer that tests negative for the three most common receptors which normally fuel breast cancer, making them harder to target.

These results mean the growth of the cancer is not fueled by the hormones estrogen and progesterone, or by the HER2 protein.

So, triple-negative breast cancer does not respond to hormonal therapy medicines or medicines that target HER2 protein receptors.

It means more radical treatments are needed to target the cells.

About 10-20 per cent of breast cancers are triple-negative breast cancers.

‘I’m now on oral chemo tablets called Capecitabine to almost ‘mop up’ any residual cancer cells. I take six tablets in the morning and six in the evening for 14 days and then have seven days off for eight cycles. 

‘I also take anti-sickness medication and B6 to help with the side effect of painful blistered skin and I finish the course at the end of January 2020. 

‘I still get anxious and it’s hard to keep positive when you’re bombarded by stories of people losing their lives to triple negative breast cancer but I know I need to keep optimistic. 

‘I’ve decided to live in the present – not to look back, but also not to look to the future because you never know what’s around the corner. 

‘My little Rey of sunshine and I are closer than ever, she’s such a happy baby and her cheeky face is enough to light up the whole room. 

‘I feel so fortunate to have my two beautiful kids – they are my whole world and their love spurs me on, and motivates me every day.’

Vicki is supporting Breast Cancer Now’s wear it pink on 18 October, raising money for vital breast cancer research and support. For more information and to register visit www.wearitpink.org

Ulrika Jonsson launches bizarre attack on her own breasts

Ulrika Jonsson has launched into a bizarre social media tirade about her own breasts, complaining they’ve shrunk after previously ‘inflating’ in size due to the menopause.

The presenter, 52, took to Instagram on Friday to share a lengthy post lamenting her own cleavage, telling fans she’s ‘hated them since they arrived,’ even after she had them reduced in 2009.

Last month Ulrika also took to Instagram to thank her friends for helping her through ‘very dark episodes,’ after she split from her husband Brian Monet in April.

In her post, Ulrika told her fans that she was struggling to cope with her breasts after being told she had to order special bras to fit her fluctuating size.

Complaining they’d increased due to the menopause, even after she had a reduction in 2009 and lost a huge amount of weight, the star told fans that she’s struggling with the size again.

Posting a snap that featured various sketches of breasts in all shapes and sizes, Ulrika penned: ‘From 3 weeks ago: ‘The Unhappiness Breasts Bring’ T*ts. Boobs. Knockers. Whatever you call them.

‘I’ve hated mine since before they arrived. Mainly because they were late and unexpectedly big. So much so that they would often enter a room minutes before I did and made me feel fat and cumbersome.’

Ulrika then continued: ‘Reduced them in 2009 – not myself, a professional surgeon. Asked for a ‘Kate Moss’ (ie, flat because that is the most appealing, in my view) but had to have something to fit ‘my frame’.

‘Then, years later they were inflated by the sodding Menopause. 

‘And now, I’ve unintentionally, unexpectedly lost weight and went to be measured for a new bra because my paracetamols won’t fill the hammock I’m currently wearing, only to be told I’m a nightmare size because I’m tiny but need a big cup because I’ve ‘lost volume’.

(Yes, know about specialist bra companies and that’s where I’ll be turning).

‘But seriously, t*ts. You get on my t*ts. I wanted to cry in the changing rooms. With all that excess skin and stupid bra measurement. #selfpity.’

Thinking: It comes after Ulrika took to social media last month to thank her friends for their support, after going through 'very dark episodes over a turbulent two years'

It comes after Ulrika took to social media last month to thank her friends for their support, after going through ‘very dark episodes over a turbulent two years.’

She wrote: ‘Had no idea I’d bored you with so many but need to make this one count.’

‘So I want pay tribute to my sista-hood. To my amazing girlfriends who have kept me upright over these past two years and particularly during a few, very dark episodes.’

‘I genuinely couldn’t find my way forward; couldn’t raise my head and couldn’t make sense of life’ during those tough periods.

‘Your unwavering support; your kind words; your truths and your sharing has helped get me here. And now I’m ready to put my dancing shoes on. 

‘I love you more than I hate today’s vile hangover (a whole bottle of rum is too much apparently – who knew?)’ she said, tagging the friends that have helped her.  

‘I’m now heading downstairs to carry on cooking. Or puke. It’s one or the other. Have a lovely Christmas, everyone.’ she signed off.

She has spoken candidly about her insecurities during their union, admitting she felt ‘repulsive’ during their sexless marriage. 

The broadcaster previously admitted that she became ‘quite insecure’ as a result.  

She told Metro: ‘It had a really detrimental effect on me. I started disliking myself; my body; I felt repulsive and started shutting myself off physically and psychologically.

‘I became quite insecure about myself. I think intimacy is crucial. We all know that as relationships mature, sex is no longer the swinging from the chandeliers stuff and I’ve always found that settled stage quite reassuring.

‘But there has to be some intimacy in a relationship in order to sustain it.’

She said: ‘I rather think I’ve simply been blessed with a child whose personality gels with mine.

‘Friends who have several children always admit, although they love them all equally, inevitably there’s one whose personality mirrors their own and they “get” each other better. It’s definitely nature not nurture.’

Damian, who counts Hugh Grant and Elton John as godfathers, signed with agency Tess Management in September 2018 and recently divided opinion with his modelling debut in a Pat McGrath make-up campaign.
