I agree, it's the expectation of bad news, I had my 1st post treatmant mammogram 3 weeks ago and have had letter to say nothing suspicious found, however I had a clear mammo 6mths before diagnosis and another clear one at my 1st clinic appointment, fortunately they did an ultresound as well that day which showed a pea sized lump, finally diagnosed with a 70mm stage 3 lobuler cancer which was only picked up on MRI.
Sensible head says all is fine but for my peace of mind I will be pushing for further check,s hopefully my consultant will agree, I believe this is when I get refered on for reconstruction, will let you know how it goes.
Nice to hear from you.
So sorry to hear about your fall....hope that you are better now.
You are not alone, every time, I go for my appointments....any appointments.....even for my blood test, my anxiety levels go up and I would have started worrying days before!!
Wishing you all the best wishes for tomorrow’s appointment. Sending you positive vibes and hugs.
Sorry to hear that you are having bad days..... remember to see the lucky mascot I sent you!
You can can definitely walk the dog..... you did it few days ago and you can do it again 🤞🏼
Hopefully, your anxiety will ease up soon.
Supportive hugs, Belle xxx
Lovely to hear from you xx
I think any appointment now can be stressful, because it will always take us back to the first days of diagnosis. I freak out now just going to the dentist or opticians because I think the x rays are going to show up something suspicious!
Will you be having a mammogram Mary? I was also worried about my first appointment and posted on here. The response I got, I would like to pass on to you....... After all the treatment you've had, it is VERY unlikely that they will find something wrong, so please try not to worry.
Best wishes for tomorrow
Not posted for a while but have kept up to date reading all your posts, have been doing reasonably well recently, still swimming and exercising been away on holiday which was a real boost, unfortunately had a fall on Sunday in the street and as well as the cuts and bruises my confidence has taken a bit of a battering
My anxiety levels have increased this week, not sleeping properly and all because I have my first follow up appointment with my Consultant tomorrow, don't get why I'm so concerned about it should be used to appointments by now
Hope you all have a good day, hugs and best wishes
Hello Ladies, wishing All a very good day.....hope that All are having an anxious free day. Hugs, Belle xxx
Well done Jill!
About the weather, it's just gone really dark and sort of orangy sky over here in East Anglia. I don't think I have ever seen anything like it before. It's a bit spooky really. Can't be anything to worry about though, the chickens haven't gone to bed.
the sky has been really weird here today as well,
This morning at 7am it was like the dea of night and wet, then a couple of hours later it was a really strange orangey/pink colour and so was the moon, then it has been brilliant sunshine since but very strong winds and it is still shining now.
Definitely stress related.
I got 2 last year....one on the day of my diagnosis and one the day after chemo!!
A few years back, was probably getting one a month on average. Ended up get some really strong medication from the Dr, otherwise I got an extreme headache and sickness. Hate them😡
Eat well this evening and hopefully you're get a good nights sleep.
Jill I used to get loads of migraines. I now take one of those small aspirins each day and now I've only had one this year. Touch wood☺
Oh nooooo, dear Jill.....have a good afternoon rest! Well, the positive is that you have managed your appointment....YAY!! How did it go?....all in Good order?
Oh Jill....what an awful time you're having😢
Did you get anything sorted at the appointment?
On a different note.....what weird weather we're having! Why has every thing gone dark and orange?!
Thank you so very much for your words of support and encouragement ❤️❤️❤️
Gillie....please do dive in anytime. Yes, plan to complain to the usual teacher when he is back from hols. Did send me to the top.... was muttering every unimaginable word...only in my head!!
Helena.....many thanks. You got a point there, as these yoga classes are especially for ladies with bc.
Janey.....thanks a lot. Hope that you are well.
Ann-M.....your hugs are appreciated....and hugs back at ya
May all of you have a lovely start to the week.
Take good care.....Belle xxx
Belle, that's disgusting and I hope you are able to complain. Such a dreadful thing to say. Jill, as you know I have had the same diagnoses as you but in reverse. The removal of my ovaries plunged me into being post menopause and the hot flushes came thick and fast. I was all but over it when I had my bc diagnosis. The tablets have definitely brought it back, so to have a double whammy is rotten for you. I have found extra strength evening primrose oil helpful; alongside chillows, linen tops and fans! Xx
That is unbelievably inappropriate and insensitive, I would be reporting her to the head of the class. SHe might be temporary but I dread to think that she is giving the same comment in other classes where she comes across ladies with bc and as Jill says a breach of confidentiality !!
I can't resist diving in and saying that the yoga teacher must be very stupid and ignorant. You sound like you have taken it pretty well but what about complaining to you usual teacher? When I think of the state I was in last year going through diagnosis and treatment a comment like that would have sent me right over the top.
Wishing you all a good week ahead ladies on this thread especially you Jill, goodluck.
Hope you didn't mind me dipping in...... Oh and I hate the dentist too.
How’s your weekend? Good and restful, I hope.
Ya, I was upset...... when she said that’s why you are sick..... in my head, I called her stupid plus @*&%@#
Take care, Belle xxx
Yes, your acupuncturist is correct. Had the same discussion with my oncologist..... specifically asked why this year, my side effects are getting progressively worse especially, hot flushes and anxiety. I was told that chemotherapy and Tamoxifen stopped my periods, that doesn’t mean I have menopaused. This year, most probably menopause or peri menopause is kicking in......sometimes all these hormonal stuff is hard to comprehend!!!!😔
Absolutely, Jill, it is frustrating, depressing, crazy, fed up.....you name it..... doesn’t make sense at all..... previously, I never even knew what was anxiety 🙄
The whole week has been rough for me, too many hot flushes, can’t get a good nights sleep, tired and to top it all, anxiety 😫 Truly hope that I will get a better coming week.
Thank goodness that she just a temporary.....
Take good care, Jill......be good at the dr 😄
No wayyyyyy you gonna pass out in the waiting room..... and don’t have any silly ideas to do a u-turn 😂 Please do update on the outcome of your visit........will be waiting for your good news.
It is like that with me too...... having good days then it’s a challenge.....ahhhhh, must be the fluctuations of non existence hormones
This may sound daft ..... yesterday, I attended yoga class and the usual instructor is on holidays so had a new female instructor. Towards the end of class, we will do our breathing exercises and once done, she commented that all of us are not breathing deep enough and we must practise it daily, fair enough. The next comment was directed at me......your breathing is shallow and that’s why you are sick with bc and I retorted back, I am not sick, I was sick but I am not sick now!!!! Did feel upset at her insensitivity......
Wishing you all the best with your appointment tomorrow. Sending you positive vibes with lotsa hugs..... including a mascot with its lucky pants especially for you! Belle xxx
Oh I hate dentists at the best of times, havent been for a long time as I am terrified of them.
Well consider them your own personal pair 🙂 🙂
What is the weather like with you today? We were forcast a sunny dry day, not happening at the moment but I am ever hopeful as I look at the laundry basket full of washing to go out.
Heres the tough pants for tomorrow mate. Sending you loads of hugs.
Not so far, but realised I needed to put in another prescription request which I did straight away 🙂 🙂 xx
Thanks Helena. Hope that you haven’t missed any of your pill 😄😃 Take care
Thanks Sue.....Please do check out on YouTube, Russell Peters..... he is hilarious too 😂
Way to go Jill, that’s definitely awesome being to walk out with your dog again and having a calmer day 👍🏼
May it be continuous....
Take care and Hugs to all,
That is great to hear that you have been out again today, a positive step forward mate xxxx
