Thanks Jo and Helena!
Jo, can I ask, did the consultant do a scan or was it manipulation?
I’m feeling so much stronger....it was just a shock when doc said that and the memories came flooding back, I’d put off going there hoping the rash would disappear of itself! I guess it’s a bit like giving birth! After that last check up we never want to be examined ever again!!! 🙃
Will have everything crossed for you that it turns out to be an innocent lump. Glad you like the Strictly tough pants and hopefully they have made you smile.
Let uys know how you get on if you want to when you get your apt.
Sending you hugs
you and I had our treatment around the same time. Definitely put on Helena’s sparkly pants, get in touch with your bcn. I was worried about a lump and was referred to a consultant who confirmed it was scar tissue.
Let us know how it goes,
Hi again Helena,
Firstly let me thank you from the bottom of my heart for the times you’ve been there in the past for me...and for so many on this site! It means a lot!
I’m positive that it’s nothing serious, but because I was positive nothing was wrong before it can make one doubt ones own judgement! I think I’m more anxious about it because of the doc being so serious! I’m away from home for the next fortnight, and hopefully the doc has passed on that message within the referral. I have other lumps which are far bigger and more painful which I know are because of the rads, but the doc says this particular lump is not because of that. All I can do is wait and see and hope she is wrong.
I’ve not been to the breast clinic yet but will now wait for the referral appointment. I like the tough pants, I will wear them well! 😬
Sending loads of my strength to help you. There have beeb ladies on here in the same position as you where a lump has been found post treatment and it has turned out to be scar tissue or the effects of radiotherapy. The trouble is because we have been there before iour GPs are ultra cautious with us that with our previous experiences heightens our anxiety levels.
Have you been in touch with your bcn at your local breast clinic, might be worth giving her a call as she will be able to advise you and arrange for you to come in to give you peace of mind.
I am sending loads of positive vibes, hugs and a pair of the virtual tough pants.
Hi! I guess I’m panicking so just need some ‘friends’!
I’m just over 5 months post treatment but had to go to docs with a breast rash today. She’s not worried about the rash (fungal...skin thinner after rads) but told me she’s extremely worried about one of the large lumps I’ve got! I’ve been reffered again but I cannot tell my husband or kids right now until I get the results, they panicked so much last time!
I’m sure it’s all fine, but I was picked up at screening last time with no symptoms, so naturally I can’t help but thinking “not again”! I’m trying not to think ahead but I don’t think I can go through it all again so soon if it has returned. I’m hoping my experienced GP is not so experienced after all!!!
I think I just need a little bit of someone else’s strength right now!
