I posted on one of the other forums yesterday prior to my seeing the consultant today.
Well, long story short. I went along thinking I had a lump in my right breast. Transpires I have several lumps in my right breast. Consultant was fantastic. Thinks it is unlikely to be BC and more likely to be fibroadenoma, given my age (38), no family history of BC etc.
Had my first mammogram. I really struggled with it, to be honest. Not only did I find it painful but I also felt so de-humanised. The radiographer was lovely, chatting away etc. But I just wanted to tell her to shut up. That’s awful, right?
My husband is being very positive. Thinks I should be too, given that statistics are against me having BC. Part of me agrees and the other is terrified until I get those test results in 10 days time (please don’t let it be longer!).
I have two gorgeous little boys and I am so worried about how any possible illness of mine will impact on them. We have a very traditional marriage - hubby works and I am a housewife - so any disruption to my life automatically impacts on them.
I know I am jumping the gun. Just feeling overwhelmed.
