Hi Everybody,
Just found this site & wish I had found it a couple of weeks ago! I’m waiting to go for an appointment tomorrow for a scan, I’m nervous not knowing what it’ll bring. I only found my lump a week and a half ago but it was huge (to me!) and very sudden, but it means I haven’t been living with it as long as many of you. But I’ve been through the whole range of emotions - grumpiness, then “why me?”, now I’m just feeling resigned & knowing I can’t do anything more & feeling grumpy will make no difference to the result of the scan tomorrow.
Anyway, to any of you sharing your “appointment day” with me tomorrow - good luck!

What you’re feeling is perfectly normal we have all been there.
It’s the not knowing that is the hard bit. Once you know what you are
dealing with things begin to look clearer.
Good luck for tests today.
Please come back and let us know how you get on.

Hi brumbabe

hope it went ok for you yesterday - i too had a scan yesterday - an mri - get my results this monday - fingers crossed for us both that its the news we want x x

Me too! Got my scan appointment for Tuesday, worried and scared, Let us know how you got on. Hope it went well for you? General feeling of Why me and irritation here too. Anyone else out there feeling same way? Would love to chat.

Hi Spacechick, I am waiting to I had my app at breast clinic on Thursday an am now waiting for the results of a biopsy, I had an ultrasound scan on which they found a suspicious area so they took a core bipopsy. I just wanted to let you know that I didn’t find the clinic as daunting as I thought it would be. Are you taking anyone with you? I took my OH and although he didn’t come in the room with me at all just knowing he was sat in the waiting room was a huge comfort just incase I needed him. Good luck for your appointment and keep posting, the ladies on here are so lovely and really help if you feel scared or down in the dumps.
Love Melissa xx

Hi Melisssa caught you on two threads! I’m taking OH too, hoping he will actually retain anything that is said to me, cause I heard nothing at initial clinic appt.Good luck with your results too. It’s just nice to know you’re all here in waiting land for a mutual rant and moan.
love n cyber hugs. Xxx

I am guilty of being a serial poster lol. My OH didn’t want to come in the room with me he is a bit of a wimp when it comes to hospitals and well anything slightly worrying. Just hving him in the waiting room was great for me though. Xxx

I’d like to see me even attempt to block my OH from coming in with me!

He’d turn the waiting room upside down!
