Ovarian cancer/BRCA2 positive/considering double mastectomy

Hi, I am 65 years old and had stage 2c ovarian cancer 2 years ago. Following genetic testing, I was found to have the BRCA2 gene which means I am at a high risk of developing breast cancer. I lost my mum to breast cancer when she was 44. At the moment I have decided to have annual mammograms and am taking Anastrozole for chemoprevention. Is there anybody out there who has or is experiencing the same difficulties? I really would like to contact you by email. Thanks. Carol
