Hi, I was recently diagnosed with Stage 1A breast cancer.

Hi, I was recently diagnosed with Stage 1A breast cancer. I was very fortunate as it was caught early and only required a lumpectomy, radiation and taking Letrozole - my prognosis is excellent. I found this out one month prior to retirement, which caused me an extreme amount of emotional stress. However, the stress of these past couple months has left me feeling anxious, resulting in extreme tightness in my neck and shoulders and how I'm experiencing a tightness in the front of my throat which has me worried sick. My PCP checked me out and said there were no swollen glands and that I had a lot of postnasal drip. She wants to prescribe an anti-depressant. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.
