hi everyone im looking a little support really i was diagnosed with tnbc in sept 10 and for last couple wks ive had a pain in my back and tummy went dr he done a water test which was clear so now having blood tests to day and waiting to have ultra sound app i keep saying to myself it nothing but i thought that with the lump i found last yr! trouble is when u had bc you just cant ignore any sign of its ugly return dont want to worry my oh as he been through enough and you ladies will no exactly how im feeling thank you all
Hi there, sorry you at having these wrries Really hope it turns out to be nothing. You are right to get checked out properly so well done for facing ipto ur concerns + seeing ur gp. You could always contact ur onc/ surgical team too who I’m sure will investigate. But it sounds like you are having the right tests- ultrasound etc. Try not to panic, lots of triple neg ladies do great after treatment. What was ur original dx- was it a big lump, nodes etc?
Best of luck- hope u don’t have to wait too long for tests + results.
hi thank you for your response it wasnt overly big 1.7 and 1 node op was done one month of diagnosis chemo node clearence and rads im so frightened of a reacurrance but had a really stressful yr b4 i got bc which im sure didnt help although treatment finished i still have a lot of really stressful things going on lost my job my darling nanna is not expected to live much longer (she like a mum to me) just wondering when all this cr@p will end xxx
Ah fingers crossed this worry turns out 2b nothing cancer related- hopefully it’s ibs or something like that (often triggered by stress). You can always push ur onc/ srgical team for a CT scan if u want to be sure that there is nothing sinister going on.
Best of luck, lets know how u get on xx
Hi gingerbud thanks about letting me know about onc as I have no contact with them I assumed I just went through my gp had blood test this afternoon so will let u no rsults of that and scan thanks again big hugs jo xx
Maybe contact ur breast care nurse + she could follow up with onc or alternativlely, contact ur oncs secretary direct at ur hospital. Good luck xx
