Really need your friendly ears today - Last friday had my 1st 3 monthly check with the breast surgeon after finishing my Herceptin in late Feb 07. (Had lumpectomy/mastectomy, chemo and herceptin, diagnosed Aug 05) - . I had found a small lumpy area a couple of weeks ago and although the surgeon didn’t feel it I had to point it out. Proceeded to have mammogram, ultrasound, the full mashings AGAIN - The mammogram and ultrasound showed no changes since my last one 2 years ago and I was overjoyed. BUT the surgeon wanted the area biopsied ‘just to be sure’.

I’m now playing the waiting game again and I’m devastated. Surely lightening can’t strike twice so soon. The surgeon thinks its just fatty tissue as I’ve recently lost a stone and thats why i’ve noticed it but he wanted to be sure!

I’m terrified - hopefully the results will be in tomorrow but I’m a complete wreck. I’m trying to keep it together but its hard. I had always prepared myself that it would come back one day, I don’t know why, but I really didn’t expect it to be this soon.

Sorry to be going on guys, but it just helps to put my thoughts down on paper.

Will let you know how the results go.

WHAT A RELIEF Thanks guys for all your support.

Results are in!!! - I’m OK - my god what a relief. I can honestly say that finding out my results were ok was 4 times worse than finding out they weren’t.

I’m so thankful for all your good thoughts, - there was only fatty breast tissue found - just on routine recall again now every 3 months.

Have holiday coming up to Gran Canaria in 2 weeks, can really enjoy that now.

Will be in touch soon.

Keep posting, it helps us all
