Re: Here I go again!

Hi Zellah.  I've just found your post and thought I'd ask how you are feeling - and help share the anxiety. You must have had your appointment so hopefully will have more information. 

 

I'm just over 5 years on from a lumpectomy and rads and am on Tamoxifen for 10 years.  I've had the usual 'scares' (bone scans, gynaecological tests, digestive tract issues) all of which have been okay in the end, after weeks of anxious waiting.

 

However, I've just had my routine mammogram and have been recalled for further imaging and a breast exam so I can empathise with being scared.  My husband (bless him) is super supportive and very positive, though inclined to stick to me like glue when we have a crisis, so I know he's worried. It's sometimes difficult to have a 'fall-apart' moment as I don't want to panic him.  I had to practically force him out of the house this morning to go to his target shooting club for a competition.  I'll admit to being worried this time though. I've got my recall appointment on Monday afternoon so I am trying to stay busy and keep calm. Hard work!!  If only I liked housework........

Sending positive thoughts to you and I'm here if you want to scream in print.

Re: Here I go again!

Thank you for your advice, I am scared  , keeping busy though, I have an appointment Thursday for Tests.  I haven't rang BC nurse as there isn't anything they can do.  It's the waiting that causing anxiety. Hopefully Thursday may give me some idea one way or the other.  It's good to have this service.  I was so positive, I have been fund raising for this charity. Swimathon, pink day, garden party etc 😀

Here I go again!

Spoiler
Need to scream, I had breast cancer last year, been through all the relevant treatment, now waiting for a biopsy to be done on the other breast.  It's the waiting, time goes so slowly.  I am level headed have a brilliant husband, don't want to show him how scared I am though.  I would love some support mentally .  Scared but putting on a brave face, but I think why!
