hi ethyldsyl, have just embarked on the dark road today with mx booked for 8th november. your news is hugely cheering, i wish you well x
oh herbidicious-i wish you well too-very best wishes for your recovery-stella x
Oh Stella, your post has made me tearful - but it’s a nice type of tears, cos I’m really glad for you, so a big hug and congratulations to you!
Also, your post touched a chord with me cos ten years ago that was me. I’ve had another sort of breast cancer since then, but again I was lucky cos it was only early stage and easily treated.
And now today, I’ve had good results from a biopsy - there’s no signs of anything cancerous, so I can really relate to how relieved you’re feeling today.
And Herbi - hello again, I seem to be following your posts on different threads. I’m not stalking you honest - lol!!
hey shelley-so pleased for you too-feel raring to go now-xx
I am so really, really pleased for you. I love a happy ending! You are encouragement to us all. The world is yours, grab it with both hands!
