Node biopsy clear but CT onMonday to recheck

Hi got node biopsy from under arm and was clear. Was discussed at MDT today but radiographer wants me to have a CT scan on Monday as he was concerned with appearance of nodes and one is definitely enlarged though may be a reactive one to my recent implant. I had bilateral reconstruction in August.

Am obviously pleased that nothing found yet but s very scared as to what CT will show and that it will show something. Am off work as cannot concentrate and just feel paralysed with fear.

Have only told work and two b close friends and hubby and eldest don who is 17. Haven’t told 14 or 12 year old yet until know what am facing and if treatable.

Hi Clessa,

I’m sorry you find yourself waiting for tests again.  It might help to give our Helpline a call to talk over how you are feeling.  They will be able to offer you practical information and emotional support.  They are open now (Opening hours 9-5 on weekdays and 10-2 on Saturdays.  The number is 0808 800 6000)

Take care

Very best wishes
