Hi Toulula

Whilst you are waiting for the other users to reply with their experiences if you would like to talk things through do give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000. Here you can share your thoughts and concerns with someone who will offer you a listening ear as well as emotional support and practical information.  Lines are open weekdays 9 to 5pm and Saturday 10 to 2pm.

Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator

Hi Toulula
Glad you’re slowly on the mend. Hope you get the results you want.

My turn for surgery tomorrow. Very frightened. :frowning:

Hugs xx

Hi Toulula - pleased to hear you’re progressing. I just wanted to wish you luck with your results. I know how hard all the waiting is.


Hi Mel - best of luck with the surgery tomorrow. It’ll soon be over and you’ll be on the mend as well. It’s another step toward getting rid of the damned thing.


Best wishes to you both.


Good luck for Monday, Rosie.
