Re: Waiting for appointment

Hi Cat42,

I hope you're doing okay, have you got any results yet?

Just wanted to let you know I had my MRI yesterday and your dad was definitely right, I had a tingling! Also had the feeling of little weird non painful electric shocks in my hips! I get my results next week so I'm hoping and praying for good news!

It all feels alot more serious now I've had the MRI, not sure why? It felt like a serious appointment, I think because alot of what I've read is that people have ultrasounds and get told all is fine so why have they done a breast MRI?

Lots of thoughts going round my head but trying to stay positive!

Re: Waiting for appointment

I think dads had pretty much everything test you can have 😂 Which does make me less worried about tests as he said non of them really hurt. You’ll have to let me know if you felt the tingling or if he’s just odd 😂 

 

I know, I just want the results now! Iv just been given the green light to start back to work tomorrow, and I’m going through planning permission for a self build house, and I’m bridesmaid next yr and going to Disney Florida next year so all this is very inconvenient 😂 

im just trying to make it all light hearted otherwise I think I’ll crack up! X

Re: Waiting for appointment

Thankyou and you too!

It is such a scary time you are definitely right, it's also very emotional but as ive said before I feel silly being so scared because what will be will be! It's not the procedure I'm worried about it's the results! 

Your dad definitely sounds like a very strong man! I do have a funny image of having a tingling bum now 🙊

Im thinking of you too and really wish you the best of luck.

Re: Waiting for appointment

Oh bless you, at least with a MRI it’ll do your whole upper body then you don’t need to worry about the other one! (I’m starting to wish they’d scanned both of mine- just in case!) it’s such a scary time waiting for tests and results.

My dad had a few contrast MRI scan, he said it was fine- no side effects etc, apparently it does make your bottom feel tingly when they inject the stuff in however 😂 🙈 So don’t worry about the procedure.

Please keep me informed, I keep thinking of you.

Hi, 

I had a physical examination which they done a dipstick test on the discharge which showed blood. I also had an ultrasound which has shown an abnormality, I have been referred for a breast MRI with contrast dye which should be soon. 

I feel absolutely terrified 😰

Re: Waiting for appointment

The nurses and doctors were really really nice,  they told me not to worry we just need to check to see what it is. I however didn’t ask too many questions, I’d personally just rather wait till the actual result was back rather then over thinking what the doctor said etc.

 

I think I feel calmer because the balls rolling, it’ll either be nothing or something. If it’s nothing then great! I’ll know soon! If it’s something then I’m one step nearer treatment and getting better.
the last couple of days Iv wondered is there something growing in me that’s trying to kill me? But now we’re finding out. 

 

my dad a few years ago was diagnosed with CLL (a type of leukaemia that is very slow and you don’t need treatment, a lot of people live 20yrs with it) but over 2 years ago this transformed into large diffused B cell lymphoma, Dr Google told me this is rare and the outlooks not good, most people don’t live more than 3-6months. But he responded super well to the chemo, and he’s now 3 months off being classed as cured. What I’m trying to say is, there’s always so much hope, try not to google everything, I was convinced my dad would be dead in a month because of google- Iv seen what cancer treatments can do, modern medicine is amazing, my dads attitude was amazing, doctors are amazing! The thing I learned from dad is to always get up, never feel defeated.

Please let me know how you get on tomorrow! I’m hoping it’s a simple cyst for you! X

Re: Waiting for appointment

Thank you for writing all that down it does seem alot easier to get your head round it when someone else has had the same thing.

I'm glad it went okay as I know you've been worrying about the appointment, I know I'm definitely having an ultrasound tomorrow but not sure what else they will do, I guess it depends on the results of the ultrasound.

Did they give you any indication of what they think it might be or is it a wait for results type scenario?

What makes you feel calmer now? Just the sense of knowing its with the specialists?

I am absolutely bricking it for tomorrow but your reply has given me a sense of calm, I just hope its not the calm before the storm!

Please let me know how you get on, on the 26th!

Sending a big hug and well done for being so brave!

Re: Waiting for appointment

Hey Abbie,

I just got back from the breast clinic.

i went in to see a consultant, she felt my breasts and made a mark with pen for the radiologist.

i then was sent to a different waiting room where I had to put on a hospital gown and then I went in for an ultrasound (the other ladies I was with both had mammograms, I think it was because they were older)

The lady put gel on me and used the ultrasound stick to have a good investigate, didn’t hurt was just a lot of pressure, she informed me it isn’t a cyst but a hard mass so they have to do a biopsy.

they injected my boob with numbing stuff, which just felt like a normal Injection, then she took the biopsies, she took 5 (I was expecting 1!) they didn’t hurt but it felt very strange, I started laughing at one point as it was just such a weird numb sensation 😂 the thing they take the biopsy with makes a loud clicking noise abit like an ear piercing gun, the sound was scary but it really didn’t hurt at all.
They then insert a small titanium chip into the breast, so if I need to go back for any treatment the areas easy found, you have a mammogram to check it’s in right, again mammogram didn’t hurt, just felt like a lot of pressure. they apply a bandage which is left on for 2 days.

After this I was sent back to see the consultant who has arrange an appointment for me to go back For the results on the 26th.

It wasn’t a bad experience and strangely I feel calmer and happier now then I did yesterday.

 

Hopefully yours will just be a cyst and not need anything done! But just incase I thought I’d write everything down for you.

Re: Waiting for appointment

Hey,

I went to the docs 2 years ago at the age of 26 with a lump, I was sent to the breast clinic within 2 weeks. I had a ultrasound there aand was told immediately it was a cyst, no treatment needed unless it changed or started hurting. 🎉 So there’s defiantly very simple positive outcomes. 

however I’m back on this forum now as Iv found a lump in my other breast now at the age of 28, I rang the docs yesterday and they told me to come in straight away, this morning I got a call from the breast clinic asking if I could go in tomorrow at 10.30.

super quick! Which I’m glad about but also crapping myself about.

ill send you a message tomorrow letting you know how I get on, I’m hoping it’s another cyst but it just feels different this time.

sending love.

Waiting for appointment

Hi everyone, 

I've read very similar stories to mine but haven't seen many outcomes/results. About 5 weeks ago, i noticed a lump in my left breast which i thought would just go down or be normal. But then i started to have clear discharge coming from left nipple without pressure and with pressure. This has gotten worse over the 5 weeks so i called the doctors on Wednesday last week and within 1 minute of us being on the phone, they called me in within 30 minutes. (as you can imagine the shear panic you have when this happens - wasn't fun) 

After the examination, she confirmed i do have a lump in my breast and will be referred to the breast clinic within 2 weeks. Luckily, i have private medical insurance through work who have got me an appointment thursday this week. I have been told i would need an ultrasound and maybe a mammogram. It is such a scary time and cannot think of anything else, it's the what if questions - which i know are only what ifs but they could become a what now? 

Then what? I am absolutely terrified that it is breast cancer. But i'm trying to stay positive with everything i have, one thing that worries me even more is my age as im 25 which they always say 'age is on your side' but that doesnt take away the fact i have a lump in my breast. 

Only need to wait until Thursday so fingers crossed.
