Had promised myself to NOT post anymore this week, but just HAD to say how pleased I am to read this!
I'm so pleased to hear the good news about your sister. I hope you are doing as well as possible.
This really is the most fantastic news - please send all our best wishes to your sister - and now you can relax a bit and try to de-stress.
Loads of hugs,
Thank you so much for your messages of support.
My sister attended Breast Clinic yesterday & received brilliant news that the lump discovered by GP was a cyst that has now been drained & she will not require any further follow up, I cannot tell you how relieved she & my family are.
Thank you so much for all your thoughts & prayers.
I am so sorry you and your sister are going through this. I do understand just how horrible it is. 10 years after my primary dx and a few months before my secondary dx my younger sister was dx with breast cancer, I was absolutely devestated and cried more about her dx than I had about mine! Hopefully the tests will bring good news but I know how dreadful the wait and the fear is.
You will both definitely be in my thoughts and prayers, with every good wish to you both, Julie xx
Hoping that it is all ok for her, I was 29 and with 3 little ones so completely unexpected. Hugs. xxxxxx
Keeping your sister in my thoughts and prayers Sarah (she is the same age as my youngest daughter).
I hope all goes well for your sister on Tuesday. Thinking of you both with best wishes,
Thinking of you and your sister and her baby.
Got my fingers crossed and you all in my prayers for Tuesday.
Try and keep it together until Tuesday. Very difficult times for both of you. Hugs, Nikki x
Sarah Thinking of you and your sister wishing you both well and that the news is good on Tuesday. Hugs J xx
Shortly after I had a baby 21 years ago, I spotted a lump and had a leaking breast but it was a blocked milk duct.
I am hoping this is not sinister for your sister but it is good you are giving her you support at this difficult time.
My thoughts and prayers are with both of you.
Hi Sarah, thinking of you both - similar thing happened to me - I decided to go with my little sis for her appointment at the breast clinic - she got the same doc who diagnosed me and everything - luckily her lump turned out to be a cyst which the doc aspirated there and then - she had a mammo a few days later and everything was clear. The relief as you can imagine was enormous - I was terrified of telling our mum if she HAD of had BC as mum didnt deal very well with my diagnosis, but we were lucky. Hope your sister is too. Lots of love to you both xxx
What a awlful shock for you and it understandable that you must be worry sick.
All I can say is I hope for a good outcome for your sister and you.
I'll be thinking about you both.
Its sounds like you're having a really tough time at the moment. As well as the support you are receiving here, if you would like to talk things through please don't hesitate to give the BCC helpline a call on 0808 800 6000. The staff on the helpline will offer you a listening ear as well emotional support and information if required. The lines are open again tomorrow from 9 to 2pm.
I hope this is helpful.
Best wishes Sam, BCC Facilitator
thinking of you + hoping your sister gets good news next week. I'm not surprised you are worried sick- you sound like a lovely caring sister.
You are both in my thoughts and prayers, Sarah. You never stop being the big sister, do you?
I am so sorry you are both having to deal with this horrible situation. As you well know, this is the hardest time for your sister, waiting to find out if there is anything wrong and she is lucky to have you supporting her at this time. Best wishes to you both.
My thoughts and prayers are with you Sarah and with your sister and family. Fingers crossed it turns out to be nothing to worry about xx
So sorry to hear that. It's strange how we often worry more for those close to us than we do about ourselves. Thinking of you both.
Have probs posted this in the wrong place but just feel so low, have gone from feeling relatively good through my treatment to a state of total anxiety
I was Dx in December age 40 & am currently undergoing chemo to be followed by Rads. Previous to me there has been no Bc in my family(that we know of).
On Tuesday i received a tearful phone call from my little sister who attended Gp with a leaking nipple which she assumed was connected to having a young baby that she has not long finished breastfeeding. On examination the Gp found the fluid not to be milk & on further examination discovered a lump in her breast as well as suspect (mobile ?) nodes & a dimpling on breast, she has been urgently referred to breast clinic which we are going to on Tuesday.
I am worried sick for her, more worried than i have ever been for myself as she is so very young (27) & has a small baby.
I appreciate that it makes absolute sense for her to be referred etc to clinic & know that it could still be nothing sinister but i am still so very scared for her.
Please keep her in your prayers/thoughts for Tuesday & that all will be ok.
